MCR Police Reports: 21-27 July
 

Here at Confidential we get a constant stream of reports, releases and updates from Greater Manchester Police. This is a small selection of the reports received so far this week, not all of them.

Some do make for depressing reading but it's worth remembering that Greater Manchester has a population of 2.6m and that recent figures show crime rates have fallen across both the region and the country.

Wednesday 23 July: Shotgun fired in Moston

Police are appealing for witnesses after shotgun shots were fired through a front door and window of a house on Claife Avenue, Moston, at around 1am on Monday 21 July.

Detective Sergeant Alex Wild of North Manchester division said: “Thankfully no-one was hurt, but whenever firearms are used there is always a risk that someone will be seriously hurt or killed, whether that is the intended target or an unrelated member of the public.

“We are at the early stages of our enquiries and working hard to piece together what has happened, but we do believe this was a targeted incident and not a random attack upon members of the public going about their business.

“If you witnessed what happened, or you saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at that time, please contact police immediately.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 0161 856 3544 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Tuesday 22 July: CCTV - Man jailed following vicious assault in Tameside

Daniel Browne, 24, of St Marys Road, Hyde, was found guilty of section 18 assault and has been sentenced to five years.

On Saturday 13 July 2013, the 28-year-old victim had been enjoying a barbecue before he went to a nearby minimarket.

Browne, who used to be a friend of the victim, approached and without
provocation launched an attack, punching and kicking the victim in the head and body.

Detective Constable Wayne Marshall from Tameside South INPT said: “For a reason only known to Browne he decided to attack a man who used to be his friend.

“He delivered a sustained assault, punching and kicking him with such force, he suffered a depressed fracture underneath his eye socket. This was obviously very painful and required surgery.

“Now Browne will be spending time behind bars and will have a lot of time to think about the unnecessary pain he caused that evening.” 

Monday 21 July: Whalley man charged with raping child
