Detectives have released a CCTV image of a man who they want to speak with in connection with an assault that occurred in Manchester City Centre.
At around 11.30pm Friday 5 November 2021, police received a report that a man and woman had been assaulted by a man on Lever Street.
Enquiries have established it happened between 11pm and 11.30pm when the victims tried to intervene after witnessing an argument between another man and woman.
DC Claire Wilson, of GMP’s City of Manchester division, said: “The assault on the female victim was nasty and prolonged – she was hit with a glass bottle before the contents of said bottle was poured over her.
“Since the offence was reported, we have completed extensive enquiries and, as a result, would like to speak to the man in the CCTV image which we are releasing today.
“I would also like to use this opportunity to appeal to anyone with other information which they think may assist us with our investigation to share it with Longsight CID directly or anonymously via Crimestoppers.”
Anyone with information should contact Greater Manchester Police quoting 3935 05/11/21 via 0161 856 4409 or gmp.police.uk. Information can also be shared anonymously via the independent charity – Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
