New Images of Manchester Rioters
10 October 2011, 13:31
New images have been released of a man wanted over an arson attack on Miss Selfridge's during Manchester's riots in the summer.
The fire was started at about 6.30pm on Tuesday 9th August 2011 when riots broke out in Manchester city centre.
The blaze destroyed the building and all stock inside costing over £400,000.
Police have now released two new images of the man wanted in connection with the attack; a close up of the offender and another of him with his hood down moments after he fled down the street following the attack.
Detective Constable Glen Draper said: "These are the two clearest images and moving footage of this offender we have released.
One of them shows the offender running with his hood down which reveals more of his identity, and combined with the very clear close-up shot we now have I am confident someone will recognise this man.
If you do know this man then please call us. The damage he caused to the shop runs into the hundreds of thousands of pounds, and was one of the main flashpoints during the disorder. We need to bring him to justice so if you do have information then please come forward."
Anyone with information should phone the appeal line number on 0800 092 0410 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
