Chatanoga Hillsborough said the incident occurred at around 2am on February 14 when the men vandalised their shop on Holme Lane by throwing bricks to shatter the window.

On a Facebook post, the pizza takeaway said: "They used bricks to shatter the window, fortunately with no luck.

"The same night exactly an hour later at 3:08am, they came back and made three shots. The first time they came on the bikes, later on foot.

"They came from Walkley Lane both times. They passed Pizza&co and the Riverside bar, maybe the Sacred Heart Church.

"They were also probably passing the Subway/Hillsborough Tap or other shops on the Middlewood Road when they were running away first in the bikes."

"It’s just so sad that now with all the coronavirus people do that. Chatanoga is a small business and like many other local shops we were severely affected by the pandemic."

The shop owners then urged the public to contact them or the police if they have any CCTV footage from the night

"If anyone has any CCTV footage from that night from your shops/houses or any Uber or Taxi please contact the admin or the police.

"Any information will be useful and we offer a prize for someone who will help us find these guys."

They have also attached footage and still CCTV images from the incident on their Facebook page.

South Yorkshire Police has been contacted for more information.
