A man was attacked in Hoyles Park when he refused to empty his pockets.

It happened at about 1am on Wednesday 28 November 2012, when the 36-year-old man was walking through the park on Bell Lane in Bury when he was approached by two men.

They demanded he emptied his pockets and when he refused one of the thieves punched him and he fell to the floor.

The offender made further threats, but the victim managed to hit him while he lay on the ground and ran away before anything was stolen.

One of the men is described as Asian, there are no further descriptions.

Police Constable Brett Grange from Bury Volume Crime team, said: “This was a cowardly unprovoked attack on a man walking home in the dark.

“They approached him from behind and when he did not give them his belongings he was punched and pushed to the floor.

“He was very brave to fight off his attackers and deserves to see justice done.

“Let’s work as a community and bring these offenders to justice. If you have information, we need to hear from you.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 6103 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
