Local News

A man has died after an incident in Monton which left him with head injuries.

At around 2.45pm on Tuesday 10 April 2018, police were called to a property on Parrin Lane in Monton by the ambulance service. 

The man was found at the entrance of the Old Fold residential block in Monton.

On arrival, officers discovered a 36-year-old man with significant head injuries. He was immediately taken to hospital but has since sadly passed away. 

Two men were originally arrested on suspicion of assault and have been bailed pending further enquiries.

Detectives investigating now believe the man may have been assaulted around Parrin Lane sometime between 12am and 10.30am on Tuesday 10 April 2018.

The identity of the man has not yet been given by the police but his name is thought to be circulating widely on social media.


“We have made two arrests but I want to stress that our investigation does not stop because of this. 

“We are still carrying out extensive forensic work and a post-mortem will be undertaken in the next few days. 

“As part our enquiries we are really keen to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything suspicion in the Parrin Lane area. 

“At the time you might not have thought anything of it but even the tiniest piece of information could really help this investigation and ultimately provide the answers to this man’s family. 

“Specially trained officers continue to offer their support during this devastating time for all those who knew and cared for this man.” 

Anyone with any information is urged to call police on 0161 856 5254 quoting 1140 of 10/04/18, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
