Moss Side Assault

3 min read

Officers investigating an assault in Moss Side that left a man without his front teeth, have released footage of men they want to speak to.

The footage – taken from a parked car on Claremont Road – shows two men on bicycles who are later joined by another man.

Officers want to speak to all three men in connection with an assault that happened on the same road around 4.20pm on Monday 10 September 2018.

After the man had been punched and kicked numerous times, causing his front teeth to be knocked out, he stumbled across the road where he collapsed. He was taken to hospital for treatment for his injuries but has since made a full recovery.

Detective Constable Steve Wright of GMP’s City of Manchester Division, said: “I appreciate this happened some time ago now so don’t expect people to remember where they were that day but I need people to really study the footage and get in touch with us if they recognise anyone.

“Since the time of the assault, we’ve been working with specialist colleagues in forensics and image recognition teams but unfortunately, this hasn’t given us any new leads.

“While we also have footage of the assault taking place, we haven’t released that as it’s so nasty and sustained that it could be quite upsetting for some people.

“Thankfully, the man has made a full recovery so we’re not dealing with anything more serious but from the injuries he suffered, it’s clear there was real intent to harm him.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 4409 quoting reference number 1279 of 10/09/18 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
