20-year-old man was taken to hospital with a stab wound to the arm and a head injury after being attacked in Denton.

The incident which occurred on Tuesday night saw three men in a car which was parked outside of a group of shops on Hulme Road when they were approached by three men – who were driving a silver Hatchback – and attacked by them.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of section 18 assault, attempt robbery, and criminal damage. He has since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Christopher Dean, from GMP’s Tameside division, said: “This was a vicious attack in the middle of the street which could have quite easily had fatal consequences for the victim.

“We will absolutely not tolerate such violence towards members of our communities and are following all available lines of enquiry to identify all those involved.

“If you have any information at all – including dashcam or CCTV footage from the area at the time of the incident – please contact police as soon as possible.”
