A MAN managed to flee after being attacked by a gang of robbers.
The 22-year-old was on Clough Lane in Paddock, walking towards Upper Brow Road, when he was set upon by six men near the railway bridge and assaulted.
A Police spokesman said: “The gang tried to grab a bag that the victim was holding, but the victim was able to escape from the suspects and run from the area to a nearby house and call the police.
“He received a tooth injury as a result of the incident.”
The attack happened at 6pm on January 4. Police say the men were Asian and have issued an e-fit image of one of the attackers.
He was described as about 5ft 2ins tall, stockily built, with very short hair and wearing dark, baggy clothing.
