Second man arrested over park robbery

n POLICE have arrested a second person on suspicion of robbing a man who was found unconscious in a park.

David McDonald, aged 55, was found on the pathway of a park at the junction of Bradford Street and Bromwich Street, The Haulgh, on the night of Saturday, December 29.

A 42-year-old man has been arrested and bailed pending further inquiries.

A 36-year-old woman, arrested earlier last week, has also been bailed.

Mr McDonald remains in a poorly but stable condition in hospital.

It is alleged that items had been stolen from the man — but it is unclear whether he was assaulted or whether the property was taken after he was lain unconscious.

Police believe he had been drinking in the town centre earlier that evening and was making his way home.

Anyone with information is asked to call CID on 0161 8565740 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.

Get well soon Mac! Everybody from the Millstone, Crown St, Bolton wish you a rapid and full recovery. Whether it was a fall or an assault, this man would do no harm to anybody and is definitely not a trouble maker. A very quiet and pleasant man.

I don't know Mac but I hope he makes a full recovery.As for the a&& holes who robbed him Ihope they get put away for a long time.What I can't get my head around is that these two scumans are out on bail,(good old Brit.justice).I can't imagine anything so low as rolling a unconcious person around on the floor to rifle his pockets.

On bail because the prisons are full of the same kind of scumbags due to the courts being too soft on punishment and the stupid idea that you can reform re- offenders.

What this country needs is proper prison sentences with hard labour attached and no remission or parole.
