Victim Richard Chalinor

A disabled man has been left afraid to leave the house after being savagely attacked and robbed by two thugs in Manchester’s Gay Village.

Richard Challinor, who suffers from cerebral palsy, had been for a drink with friends at a Canal Street bar.

The 26-year-old was sitting on a bench waiting to get a taxi in Sackville Gardens when he was approached by two men.

One asked if he was all right before demanding he empty his pockets. When Richard refused, the man punched him in the face, causing a deep cut to his mouth which needed 10 stitches.

He handed over all his money, bank cards, mobile phone and the keys to his flat and the thugs ran off….

…..Both offenders were described as black and in their early 30s. One was stocky, around 5ft8, and wore a grey beanie hat with blue writing on it. The other was 6ft, slim and wearing a dark-coloured jacket with the hood up.
