Three men have been arrested after a man was seriously assaulted in Stretford following a disturbance at the Melville Hotel on Melville Road.

Emergency services attended and the man was taken to hospital with serious injuries. He remains there in a critical condition.

Three men – aged 52, 39 and 30 – have been arrested on suspicion of assault. They all remain in custody for questioning.

Detective Sergeant Phil Bainbridge, of GMP’s Trafford district, said: “This was a violent incident which has left a man fighting for his life and our thoughts are very much with him and his family at this difficult time.

“There was a scene in place at the Melville Hotel whilst investigation and forensic work was carried out, but this cordon has since been lifted. There will however remain a higher police presence in the area over the next few days. Our officers are there to provide a visible presence- please, if you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to speak to them.

“Whilst we have three men in custody, our enquiries are very much ongoing and I would implore anyone who has any information that may assist our enquiries to please get in touch with officers.”


  1. Oh god, this is so terrific. It’s just… can you imagine living your life and suddenly being bullied, killed and so on? I’m so sorry this happened. Wish this man luck. Hope he will recover.
