A man has been attacked with a meat cleaver in broad daylight in Wythenshawe.
The attack happened around 11:20 this morning.
The man was attacked after a car chase which culminated on Cornishway Way in Woodhouse Park. A red Volkswagen Golf was chased by a black BMW, before the Golf crashed into a gatepost.
A number of men who were in the BMW then attacked the man, who was left with serious injuries.
The attackers then got back into the BMW and drove off at speed.
Police are now appealing for anyone who may have seen either car in the area before the incident to get in touch.
The man is now being treated in hospital for his injuries.
“This is a baffling incident and we are keen to work out exactly what happened and what lead to this vicious attack.
We are keen to identify the black BMW and the occupants so we are appealing for anyone with any information to come forward. We would also like to hear from anyone who may have seen the red Golf before the incident.
It is shocking that such an attack could happen in broad daylight. I’m sure someone will have seen the two vehicles before the attack.''
Police are warning people in Wythenshawe to be vigilant after reports of bogus charity collecting in the area.
A man has knocked on two residents' doors on Fellpark Road claiming to be collecting money for charity. He then followed both victims into their homes where they have given him money.
After one of his visits, an elderly woman noticed £20 was missing from her table.
Greater Manchester Police have released a CCTV image of a man they'd like to speak to to help them with their enquiries.
Anyone with any information should call police on 101 quoting incident number 0720 of 7 June 2016 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

New photographs of the damage caused by a fire inside 16th century manor Wythenshawe Hall have been released by Manchester City Council.
Over 50 firefighters were called out to tackle the blaze that ravaged the Tudor mansion in March.
The roof and most of the timber structure were destroyed in the fire.
The manor was once besieged by Oliver Cromwell's parliamentarian soldiers during the English Civil War.
Work to restore the building is ongoing.
“A huge amount of work has already gone into helping protect Wythenshawe Hall, most visibly the scaffold cocoon that is helping to stabilise the damaged areas of the property and will support the new temporary roofing.
“Inside, countless hours have been spent making sure anything that can be saved is saved. Everything from the largest pieces of furniture that were on display in the building, to the smallest artefacts being unearthed by highly-trained archaeologists.
“It will be a long road to recovery for the building, but working with our partners and the friends’ group, we will see Wythenshawe Hall back to its best.”
