Man knocked unconscious and robbed in street
A MAN was knocked unconscious and robbed in Holcombe Brook
The incident happened on Westgate Avenue sometime between 8.45pm and 9pm on February 22.
The 24-year-old man was walking along the road towards Kendal Road to his vehicle, when a man approached him from behind and hit him over the head, knocking him unconscious.
Money was stolen from him as he lay on the ground.
A passing motorist came to his aid and he was taken to hospital for treatment for concussion.
The victim was wearing a Leeds United jacket which is royal blue in colour, grey tracksuit bottoms and white trainers.
Det Con Lindsey Worrall, of Bury CID, said: “This is an extremely rare occurrence for a robbery to be committed in the Holcombe Brook area and I have no doubt people will be shocked to hear news of it.
“The victim must have been hit with some force to knock him unconscious and it is lucky he was not more seriously injured as a result of his fall.
“If anyone remembers seeing a man hanging around this area or anything out of the ordinary on this evening, please get in touch and tell us what you saw.
"Your information, no matter how small or trivial you think it may be, could be vital to our investigation.”
Call Bury CID on 101 with information.
