A YOUNG man has been left with injuries after being attacked by a group of eight people at a Bolton takeaway, his family claims.

Bradley Wilde, aged 21, had gone to buy food at Allen’s Fried Chicken in Bradshawgate after a night out when the assault took place.

Photos show he sustained cuts and bruising to his face, neck and head during the incident.

His mother has described the assault as “horrendous” and called for CCTV footage to be shared so the offenders can be caught.

She says it was an unprovoked attack that started outside the shop. It is then claimed the attackers followed her son inside the takeaway.

Police confirmed they were called to reports of an assault in Bradshawgate at about 4.20am on Saturday, January 25.

Mum-of-five Lianne Curbishley, who lives in Westhoughton, said: “My son was jumped in the early hours of the morning. It was an unprovoked attack.

“I have seen some of the CCTV from inside Allen’s, which shows my son being attacked by grown men and women in their 40s. There were eight of them in total, punching my son repeatedly in the head. They took his phone from him and smashed it to pieces.

“My son had been out drinking at Level nightclub. He was eating a takeaway when a woman attacked his face and strangled him around the neck. Then a man came in and punched him repeatedly from side to side, knocking his glasses from his face.

“Seconds later five more men and another woman joined in the attack, punching him like a punch bag. I couldn’t watch all of the video because it was sickening.”

She added: “Bradley is traumatised and very upset about what has happened.”

The mother and son are due to attend Royal Bolton Hospital today as a precautionary check.

Miss Curbishley, aged 39, and who works as a nail technician, said the incident has been reported to police. 

Officers are understood to have attended the scene at the time of the incident, and driven Bradley home. It is understood that Allen’s has shared CCTV footage with the police, who are investigating.

“I want the CCTV to be shared so that members of the public can help trace whoever is responsible for this attack”, Miss Curbishley said.
