Man arrested after two people assaulted - Wigan
Friday 9th December, 2005

At approximately 2.15am on Friday 9 December 2005, police in Wigan received reports of an assault on King Street in Wigan.

A 20-year-old man from Atherton was left with a bloody nose and swollen lips after being punched in the face, in what is believed to have been an unprovoked attack.

A 22-year-old man then tried to intervene and was also punched in the face, causing him to fall to the ground and bang his head.

Despite being assaulted, the 22-year-old followed the alleged offender and relayed his whereabouts to police via his mobile phone. When officers arrived, the 22-year-old pointed out the man to police, who then arrested him.

The 22-year-old required treatment for a fractured cheekbone at Wigan Royal Infirmary.

A 27-year-old man from Wigan has been arrested on suspicion of assault.
