Man, 27, battered by gang of boozy teens when he asked them to stop drinking in his field

A MAN was battered by a gang of boozy teens when he asked them to leave his field.

The 27-year-old was rushed to hospital with a broken leg yesterday evening and is in a stable condition after the "horrendous attack."

Four boys aged 14-16 had been drinking and were arrested by cops, who arrived within minutes of being called to the field off Bateman Avenue, Greater Manchester.

A large group of teenagers had also been in the field before being told to leave by a member of the public, according to Greater Manchester Police.

Territorial Commander Chief Superintendent Chris Allsop said: “A local man was subjected to a horrendous attack by a group of teenagers after he asked them to move from private property."

He encouraged anyone with information or footage to reach out and added: “The risk of coronavirus is still present and attending these events is putting you at risk.

"I want to take this opportunity to appeal directly to parents and guardians – please consider where you’re dropping your children off, particularly if it’s with alcohol as it not only puts your children at risk, but also our wider communities.

“Teenagers should not be gathering in public spaces drinking alcohol and we will not tolerate acts of violence on our streets."

The teens remain in custody as enquiries continue.

Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 8511 or 101 quoting incident number 2810 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
