The victims – a mother, father, and son – suffered knife wounds and were rushed to hospital.

Cops confirmed the father has since had surgery on a life-changing injury after “three men in balaclavas” descended on the property.

The mother and son have been discharged from hospital, according to the latest police reports.

Neighbours say they “knew something was seriously wrong” when they heard “screams” coming from the flat.

One resident told Manchester Evening News: “It was so loud I thought it was outside. They were screaming and shouting and a woman was screaming for help from the window.

“There was a car outside that I didn’t realise had anything to do with it. Then, about four to five minutes later, three individuals came running out completely covered up, jumped in the car and sped off.”

After the horror, an air ambulance landed near to the scene at around 2.30pm on Friday.

One witness claimed as many as six ambulances and ten police vans and cars were at the location.

There is still a scene in place and CSI are continuing their forensic assessment of the property.

Cops have been following various lines of enquiry and are now turning to the community to see if they can get any help with the investigation.
