August 8, 2012, 9:55 am

Just after 12pm on Sunday 29 July 2012, the 41-year-old woman heard a knock at her door on Hill Lane, Blackley.

She opened it to see who it was and a man pushed her. He then stabbed her in the neck with a syringe before running off.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment for a minor neck injury and was discharged.

The man is described as being of slim build, 5ft 10in tall, clean shaven, was in his late 20s/early 30s and spoke with a local accent. He was wearing a black woolly hat, navy blue Nike tracksuit bottoms and a black coat.

Detective Constable Mike Keogh from North Manchester CID said: “The victim has been left shaken after her ordeal and is now frightened to open her door to anyone.

“Thankfully she was not seriously hurt and nothing was injected but we are still treating this as a serious assault.

“I would ask people to take a good look at the image and description of the offender. If you recognise him, please contact police as soon as possible so we can get him of our streets.”
