A man was stabbed in the hand during a robbery in Levenshulme.

The 20-year-old man was on his way to deposit weekly takings at the Natwest bank on Cromwell Grove, just after midday on Monday 3 February 2014.

As he approached the junction of Stockport Road and Cromwell Grove, he was approached by two men from behind.

One of them grabbed him while the other held a knife to his neck and demanded he handed over a bag that contained money.

The victim was dragged into a small car park and into an alleyway of Cromwell Grove where he was threatened again and then stabbed in the hand.

The bag was picked up and both men ran off.

Detective Constable Danny Wilkinson said: “We believe that the offenders have purposefully followed the man and then struck when they felt no one would see them.

“They have shown extreme aggression which resulted in the victim getting stabbed in his hand. Thankfully, he is recovering from his injury.

“Unfortunately we have no description of the offenders as the robbery happened in broad daylight, we are asking for anyone who may have seen a struggle between three men near to Cromwell Grove, to phone us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 1902 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
