Police investigating 'armed assault' release picture of man they want to talk to

Detectives investigating an armed assault in Stockport have released an image of a man they want to speak to.

At 8.15pm on Friday 8 July 2016, the 26-year-old victim of the attack was at his home in Sharples Street, Heaton Norris, when three men knocked on the front door and asked to see him.

After the victim came to the door, there was an argument which escalated into a fight in the street.

One of the men threatened to stab the victim with a knife, before another struck him on the head with a hammer, causing him to fall to the ground.

The men then continued to hit and punch the victim while he lay on the floor.

They then left the scene in a blue Volkswagen Golf.
