Officers investigating an attack on a man in a Manchester takeaway have released images of two suspects.

The incident happened at around 5am on Friday 7 December 2012 at the Krunchy Chicken takeaway on Bloom Street in the city centre.

The victim, aged 26, went into the takeaway where two men were being served at the counter.

One of the men hit the 26-year-old over the head with a glass bottle, while the second man punched him repeatedly in the head.

Staff at the shop intervened and both offenders then made off along Bloom Street and onto Princess Street.

The first man is white and described as in his early 20s, around 5ft 8in, average build and was wearing a dark suit and white shirt.

The second man is white and described as 6ft tall, around 25 years old, skinny build, with short black spiky hair. He was clean shaven and wearing grey skinny jeans and a v-neck black T-shirt with very short sleeves exposing his chest.

Detective Constable Sarah Wright based at Bootle Street police station said: “We have today released CCTV images of two men police want to speak to in connection with this assault.

“This appears to be an unprovoked attack, which left the victim needing stitches for a serious injury to his head.


“If anyone recognises the two men from the CCTV, I would ask you to please contact the police to help us identify them. You can do this by calling officers directly, or contacting Crimestoppers anonymously.”

Anyone with information can phone police on 0161 856 3120 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
