  • 18 years jail for six men who violently assaulted 25-year-old man
  • Man suffered serious injuries including broken jaw

Six men have been jailed for a total 18 years after violently assaulting a man in the Northern Quarter in February last year.

Manchester Crown Court heard that after the 25-year-old man left a bar but was unable to find his friends, he approached the the group of men and began talking to them.

He was suddenly forced against the wall of a building during the encounter and then assaulted, before being grabbed and dumped into the middle of the road where he was punched and kicked repeatedly.

The attack continued until another group of people leaving the bar disrupted them and called for help.

The man was taken to hospital where he was treated for a broken jaw and other serious injuries.
