“Terrifying” homophobic assault leaves a man in Manchester hospitalised

Police in Manchester have released an image of a man they wish to question in connection to an alleged homophobic hate crime on the outskirts of Manchester earlier in October.

According to police reports, a man in his 20s was attacked by another man in what they are calling “an unprovoked attack”

The assault, the police say, took place close to the entrance of Clayton Vale Park on Ten Acres Lane on Sunday 6 October 2019 just after mid-day at 12:30 PM


The victim, who has not yet been named, was left with serious facial injuries and needed medical treatment.
