A man has been arrested after a woman was attacked and robbed in her own home in Fallowfield.


Around 2.50am on Wednesday 10 July 2019, a woman in her 20s was in bed at her address on Landcross Road when she heard loud banging on her front door. The offender forced his way in and demanded valuables before attacking the woman.

He fled the scene with a number of items including a silver iPhone 6s and a quantity of cash.

The victim sustained significant facial injuries including a broken nose, bruising and a cut to her face which required nine stitches.

A 27-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and he remains in custody for questioning.

Detective Sergeant Mark Hodgson, of GMP’s City of Manchester division, said: “This was a spineless and violent attack on a lone woman in her own home.

“Although an arrest has been made, our enquiries are still ongoing and I would urge anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area, or anyone with information to get in contact with police as soon as possible.”

Information can be given to police by calling 0161 856 6018 quoting incident number 350 of 10/07/2019.

Alternatively, information can be passed on to the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
