Do you know these men? Police release pictures of gang who attacked students on 142 bus in Withington
Police have released CCTV images of a gang who viciously beat two students as they travelled on the top deck of a bus. The two men, both students, were set upon as they travelled on the 142 bus through Withington. Police believe at least one of the attackers was also a university student – and have been working with campus bosses to track them down.
They have now released pictures of three attackers, all Asian men in their 20s, believed to be behind the attack.
The incident happened in early hours of January 11, this year. The two victims and a friend fell into a conversation with a group of five Asian men on the late night service.
But three of the men launched an unprovoked attack on the group, punching and kicking one of the victims as he lay helpless on the ground.
