Police renew appeals on first anniversary of Oldham stabbing

Thomas Hickey

Police investigating the stabbing of a man in Oldham are renewing their appeal for witnesses on the first anniversary of the attack.

Police have released CCTV images of a group of men they want to speak to.

21 year old Thomas Hickey was assaulted outside the Liquid Envy nightclub on Waterloo Street.

As he tried to escape he fell breaking his knee.

He was then stabbed in the back and head.

Detectives say that it was a 'particularly nasty' attack and are asking anyone with information to come forward.

This weekend marks the anniversary of this brutal attack and we hope it may prompt someone to remember something.

Perhaps witnesses who were reluctant to come forward a year ago, for whatever reason, will now feel able to do so.

Thomas was the victim of an extremely nasty attack and the person - or persons - who inflicted his wounds clearly intended to cause great harm. We're appealing to anyone who can help to bring those responsible for this cruel attack to come forward and help with our investigation. In addition to releasing CCTV we have made repeated public appeals for information from anyone who was in Oldham town centre in the early hours of 24 March last year. Thomas Hickey was attacked at around 2.30am outside the Liquid Envy nightclub and we are convinced someone can identify the people we need to speak to and help to bring justice for Thomas and his family.
