/ Pictures released in Moss Side stabbing investigation

Police have released images of a man they want to speak to in connection with a stabbing in Moss Side.

At around 8:10pm on Saturday 11 November 2017, police and ambulance attended a 42-year-old man who had been stabbed multiple times on Ruskin Avenue.

He was taken to hospital and remains there for treatment but his injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

Enquiries have established the driver had picked up a man on Dickenson Road, Longsight before driving to Ruskin Avenue.

The customer started arguing over the cost of the fare before he repeatedly stabbed the driver. He then fled the scene leaving him seriously injured.

Officers have now released pictures of a man they want to speak to in connection with this incident.

Detective Inspector Geoff Machent, of GMP’s City of Manchester team, said: “As we continue to investigate this brutal attack, our thoughts remain with the taxi driver as he recovers in hospital.

“We are continuing to follow extensive lines of enquiry and are particularly keen to speak to the man pictured in connection with this attack.

”If you saw the man pictured in the area around the time of the offence, or have any information about him, then please get in touch."

Anybody with information should contact police on 101, quoting incident number 2017 of 11/11/17, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
