Ap­peal for help af­ter as­sault

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - News -

Po­lice in Manch­ester are seek­ing a man be­lieved to be from the north­east in re­la­tion to a se­ri­ous as­sault on a fa­ther and son af­ter a rock con­cert in the English city.

The pair had been at an AC/DC per­for­mance at Eti­had Sta­dium on June 9 last year when the at­tack took place.

Po­lice say the 21-yearold son had been ad­mir­ing a limou­sine in the car park out­side the venue just af­ter the gig had fin­ished at around 11.30pm when four men stepped out of the ve­hi­cle and knocked him un­con­scious.

The vic­tim's fa­ther tried to in­ter­vene, but was also at­tacked and left with a frac­tured jaw and eye socket.

Both men, from Cheshire, were taken to hospi­tal fol­low­ing the at­tack.

Of­fi­cers have now re­leased a pic­ture of a man they wish to speak to re­gard­ing the in­ci­dent, who is be­lieved to be from Peter­head.

De­tec­tive con­sta­ble Chris Chad­der­ton said: “We are keen to speak to the man pic­tured and are urg­ing any­one who recog­nises him to please call po­lice.

“If you think you know him, or have any in­for­ma­tion about him then please call po­lice.

“We are also keen to hear from any­one who may have wit­nessed the at­tack and would also urge you to con­tact us.

“Even if it is a small piece of in­for­ma­tion, it could help us with our in­ves­ti­ga­tion."

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is urged to phone the po­lice on 101, or Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to re­main anony­mous.
