A man was kicked and stamped on during an attempted robbery in Sale

A man was kicked and stamped on during an attempted robbery in Sale.

It happened as the 21-year-old was walking home through the playing fields on Manor Avenue at about 10.35pm on 16 August 2012.

He was approached from behind by two men, one of which asked the victim if he knew what the name of the park was. He then got into the victim’s face, and fearing he would be attacked the man pushed the offender and ran off.

However, the offender and his accomplice managed to catch up with him and during a struggle fell to the ground, at which point one of the offenders subdued him in a headlock while the other kicked and stamped on his chest and back.

During the fight the two offenders repeatedly demanded the man’s mobile phone, but he managed to break free and run off onto Firs Road where he flagged down a passing police car.

Nothing was stolen.

Officers are now appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

The first offender is described as being white, 5ft 10in, 18-20-years-old, of a medium to short build and with medium black hair. He was wearing a black jumper with a grey adidas logo, black tracksuit bottoms and black low-cut ankle trainers.

The other man was white, about 5ft 10in tall, 18-20-years-old, of a medium build and wearing a red hooded top with the hood pulled up.

Police Constable Alastair Jones said: “These two offenders displayed a worrying level of violence just to get their hands on a mobile phone. Although the victim has not suffered serious injuries, clearly the fact he was kicked and stamped on means he could have sustained very nasty injuries.

“We need to find these two men as soon as possible so I would appeal to anyone who recognises these offenders, or perhaps who witnessed what happened, to come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 7552 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
