A man was violently beaten in a bus stop in Wigan.

At about 2.50am on Sunday 13 September 2009, the 24-year-old victim was with friends outside Wigan North Western Station, Wallgate, when he was approached by a group of four men.

Three of the men shouted abuse at the victim before launching a vicious and unprovoked attack.

He suffered a triple fracture to his right leg, a dislocated right ankle and severe swelling to his head and face.

All three are described as white and between 19 and 20-years-old. One is described as being of scrawny build with short-cropped hair and wearing a green T-shirt. The second was small but of stocky build with a shaved head.

Detective Sergeant Graham Clare, from Wigan CID, said: "This was a senseless attack that has left the victim with extremely nasty injuries.

"Given the severity of this attack we are issuing CCTV images of a number of men we are keen to speak to.

"If you know the identity of any of these men or if you witnessed the incident then please call police."

Anyone with information is asked to call Wigan CID on 0161 856 5307, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
