The 27-year-old, who is White, was attacked by a group of teenagers as he walked along Church Lane in Rochdale on Monday, between 1430 and 1515 BST.

The Black youths yelled racist abuse as they pushed him to the ground, kicked him and hit him in the face with a wrench.

Police have appealed to any witnesses to contact them.

The youths are described as black males, aged about 19 and wearing dark clothing with the hoods up.

The attack stopped when a man intervened and the victim was taken to hospital with serious facial injuries.

Det Con Heidi Edge, of Greater Manchester Police, said: “This was a nasty racially-motivated assault and I would like to stress that we are taking this very seriously and doing everything we can to identify those responsible.”

  1. WHY ARE YOU LYING?

    THIS IS INCITING RACIAL HATRED.

    THE REAL STORY IS THE OPPOSITE AND IT WAS AN ASIAN MAN WHO WAS ASSAULTED.

    LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE

  2. What would you do if your ancestors had been enslaved for 400 years?!

    Be thankful of your white privilege. You have 0 experience of the black community so you should not comment on it
