YOBS dragged a man from his van then made off in the vehicle.

The victim suffered cuts and bruises when the two men dragged him from his black Fiat Ulysses, on Leigh Road, Boothstown, at around 11.50am on Wednesday.

The attackers then drove off in the van towards the Novotel in Worsley leaving the victim shaken.

Det Sgt Del Scholfield said: “This was a violent attack on an innocent member of the public who was going about his normal business.

“This type of crime and behaviour will not be tolerated. We want to reassure people that we are investigating this crime and doing everything we can to catch the offenders as soon as possible.

“Leigh Road is a busy main road and given the time of day there were numerous vehicles travelling along it. Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident and, in particular, the driver of a blue vehicle who stopped to help.

“We’re urging anyone who may have seen two men driving away in the car to contact police immediately.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 5345 or Crimestoppers, on 0800 555111.

You can see the logic in crime, There's an article above whereby a woman from westhoughton robs a company of £38,689 and gets 200 hrs community service, so called a slap on the wrist, this equates to £193.44 per hour wages, where can a low life thief like her ever be able to earn wages like that, The justice system has just so called protected her children by not sending her to prison, what message has it given to her children, life of crime pays better than honesty.
These car theives will sell the van for £2500 and get 50 hrs Community Payback, of which 20hrs will be done sat in the mini bus going from and to litter picking areas. One big Joke
