Second arrest after man stabbed and left for dead
Tuesday 19th February, 2013

Two people have now been arrested after a man was stabbed and left for dead in Hindley.

At about 9.55am on Sunday 17 February 2013, the 59-year-old victim was just leaving a relative's home on Worcester Avenue when he was confronted by two men.

The offenders demanded the keys to his white C220 Mercedes 11 plate and then stabbed the man 12 times, leaving him with serious injuries to his arms and his neck.

The duo fled without the car, running down Worcester Avenue and then through a ginnel towards Smithwood Avenue.

Two men, both aged 26, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and both remain in police custody for questioning.

The victim remains in hospital in a serious condition. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening and he continues to make good progress in his recovery.

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 5307 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
