Police have released CCTV images of an Asian MUSLIM gang who viciously beat two students as they traveled on the top deck of a bus.
MENMedia The two men, both students, were set upon as they traveled on the 142 bus through Withington in January. They have just now released pictures of the attackers, all AsianMUSLIM men in their 20s, believed to be behind the attack.
The incident happened in early hours of January 11, this year. The two victims and a friend fell into a conversation with a group of five AsianMUSLIM men on the late night service. But three of the men launched an unprovoked attack on the group, punching and kicking one of the victims as he lay helpless on the ground.
Det Con Dominic Heslop, investigating, said: “We believe at least one of the offenders is a student at the Manchester Metropolitan University, based on conversations between the two groups.
“Although it has been several months since this incident, both victims were badly affected by what happened and our inquiries will continue until we have identified all those involved. Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 4221 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
