A cyclist was knocked unconscious and suffered facial fractures after his bike was stolen.
The incident occurred on Platt Lane in Rusholme as the victim left Platt Fields Park at about 7.30pm on Wednesday 8 April.
As he left the park he was knocked off his bike by a man wearing dark clothing and as he struck the ground, he was knocked unconscious.
When he awoke, he found that his bike was gone.
The cyclist, who wishes not to be named, was taken to hospital where he was found to have sustained a fractured cheekbone and a fractured eye socket. He will need further tests to determine any long-term injuries to his left eye.
Police have now released a picture of the injuries sustained to the man during the incident which they have described as “potentially life-changing”, along with a picture of the bike, and are appealing to anyone who has any information to come forward.
