Man atacked in Burnley

Man atacked in Burnley

12:54pm 29th September 2010

A man's been attacked by two other men in Burnley.

The twenty five year old from Manchester was walking alone to the train station last Monday.

He was asked for a light by one of the men and then punched in the face by the other - this caused him to fall to the floor.

His rucksack was then searched and both men made off empty handed towards Manchester Road.

Police say they're keen to speak to a woman who may have spoken to the victim shortly after the assault as they think she may have vital information.

Detective Constable Darren Davies, who is leading the investigation, said: “I would appeal to anybody who was in the area around the time of the assault, particularly if they were using the train station around the time of the 9.36pm train to Manchester via Hebden Bridge, to contact police.

“I would also like to appeal directly to a woman who may have spoken with the victim shortly after the incident. This woman was driving a silver coloured Jeep Cherokee and I would urge her to come forward as she may hold information which will assist with this investigation.”

The first offender is described as being around five feet seven inches tall and of slim build.

He was wearing a dark coloured hooded top with the hood up, dark coloured Adidas tracksuit bottoms with three stripes down the outside of the legs, white socks and white trainers similar to K-Swiss with darker coloured tabs on the heel areas.

The second offender is described as being around six foot tall, of medium to broad build and was wearing a dark coloured baseball cap and dark clothing.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact either DC Davies or DC Harvey of Burnley CID on 01282 472143 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
