Man injured in robbery and assault following road rage in Ashton

Police are searching for two thugs who attacked a cyclist following a road rage incident.

The attack took place on Cavendish Street in Ashton, on Friday, April 26, at around 3:30pm.

In what was an attempted robbery following a road rage confrontation, a cyclist in his 50s was forced to dismount, which then resulted in an assault. 

Following initial enquiries, officers have now identified two men they would like to speak to in connection with this as they believe they have vital information that could help.

No arrests have been made at this stage.

PC Jack Elliott from our Tameside response team said; “We are still actively trying to find those responsible, as all road users should feel safe when travelling in Greater Manchester.

“We are now able to appeal to our local community and in particular the two people pictured to come forward and help us with our investigation.

“If anyone has information, please call us direct on 0161 856 9213 direct or 101 quoting incident 2127 of 26/04/2024. Alternatively, details can be passed on anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
