A man has died following an assault in Rochdale.
Police were called to Fleece Street in the early hours of Saturday morning after reports a man had been assaulted.
Officers found Wesley Clutterbuck, 19, from Whitworth, with serious head injuries. He was taken to hospital but his life support was switched off on Sunday afternoon.
Police think there was an argument between Wesley and another man, where Wesley was punched in the face and knocked to the ground.
A 20-year-old man, previously arrested on suspicion of assault, has been re-arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and remains in police custody for questioning.
Detective Inspector Andy Aston said:
"Tragically Wesley suffered injuries from which he was not able to recover.
“His death has understandably devastated his family and we have specially trained family liaison officers with them to provide the best support we can.
“This was an isolated incident and at this time we are not looking for anyone else in connection with what happened, but we do need to speak to anyone that was in the area at the time and may have seen what happened.
“If you were in the Fleece Street area in the early hours of Saturday morning please call us.”
