A man with kidney failure was robbed and beaten on his own doorstep in Whalley Range. The attack took place last Friday whilst the man was returning from hospital after treatment.
It's believed the offenders followed the 51 year old victim him and jumped him from behind.
As he was being attacked, one of the offenders asked for the man’s Kara which is the Punjabi word for bangle. After a brief struggle, one of the offenders ripped a rare and unusual necklace off the victim. The necklace has a real tiger tooth covered in gold and is worth more than £1,500.
Eventually, the two offenders forced their way into the victim’s home which set off the burglar alarm, causing them to flee.
