Police do not believe that the assaults are connected.

No arrests have been made so far.

Detective Sergeant Andrew Dixon, of GMP’s Rochdale Division, said: "These nasty assaults could easily have resulted in even more serious consequences so, despite them happening a few weeks ago, our enquiries are very much ongoing.

"We don’t believe they are linked but, due to them happening at the end of a night out, it is likely there were people in the area at the time who can assist us with both sets of enquiries.

"If you recognise the men in the CCTV or have any other information then please get in touch with us."
