Helpful neighbour hit in the head with a hammer

A man was hit in the head by a hammer after he came to the aid of his neighbours who were being threatened by armed intruders.

A 21-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman were at their home on Fairclough Street in Hindley, Wigan at about 11pm on March 31, when three armed men forced their way in through the front door of the house.

One was brandishing a machete, another a hammer. The offender carrying the machete waved it menacingly towards the man and threatened him.

Hearing the commotion, the couple's neighbour, a 56-year-old man, came to their aid but as he went into the house, he was struck in the head with a hammer. He later required hospital treatment to stop the bleeding and was later discharged.

The gang stole the 21-year-old man's Hugo Boss watch and then fled towards Ladies Lane.

Police are now appealing to anyone who has information to come forward, for a full description of the men: CLICK HERE

We are investigating this deeply unsettling incident which has left a young couple extremely traumatised and another man, who was only being a good neighbour, with a head injury that needed hospital treatment.

I have to pay tribute to the bravery of the neighbour, who did not turn a blind eye but showed great courage in risking his own safety to help out his neighbours. For his trouble, he was smashed in the head with a hammer and lost a considerable amount of blood while the other offenders stole an expensive watch.

91-year-old mugged in Whalley Range

A "cowardly and wicked" thief dragged a 91-year-old woman to the ground in Manchester and snatched her bag, police said.

The victim was left with bruising across her body following the incident in Whalley Range.

The woman was confronted by the thief in Russell Avenue and dragged to the floor, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said.

Fearing for her safety, she let go of her bag which contained a small amount of cash and the offender ran off.

He is described as being dark skinned, about 5ft 5in and was dressed all in black.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment to bruising across her body, police said.

I simply can't comprehend how anyone can be prepared to physically attack and rob a woman who is elderly and of slight build.

The victim should have every right to walk down the street without fear of being attacked, and now this cowardly and wicked thief has taken that away from her. She will undoubtedly be forever looking over her shoulder because of what has happened.
