Once he passed the group he was pushed from behind and he fell to the cobble stoned path, he was taken to hospital for treatment for the extensive head injuries he suffered, glady he has now been released from hospital.
The offenders are described as either teenage boys or men in their early 20’s, of slim build and around 6ft tall, wearing puffer-type jackets.
Detective Constable David Kirk of GMP’s City of Manchester team said: “The man was minding his own business when he was unnecessarily attacked by the group.
“The assault has left this man with incredibly serious injuries and it will take him a long time to recover from the damage they have caused.
“The attack happened on bonfire night, so I’m asking you to think back to that night and if you remember seeing something suspicious, or encountered the group as you travelled to and from the fireworks, please get in touch.”
