Hunt for street attacker who left man with fractured skull
A MAN was left with a suspected fractured skull after he was brutally attacked in the street.
The 31-year-old suffered serious injuries when he was knocked down during the assault on Dryden Avenue, in Cheadle. Police believe the man was involved in an argument before he smashed his head on the ground and suffered a bleed on his brain.
Det Sgt Stephen Hartley said: “What we know at this stage is that the victim and his attacker got into some sort of argument and, as a result, the offender turned violent.
“We are keeping an open mind as to what the motive was for this assault.”
The man was taken to hospital shortly after the incident around 8pm on Friday.
Det Sgt Hartley added: “The victim sustained a suspected fractured skull and a bleed to his brain so his injuries are very serious. I would appeal to anyone who either witnessed the attack, or has information about who they suspect might be responsible, to come forward and speak to us.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
