CCTV pictures have been released of five men who were involved in what police are calling a violent brawl outside a pub in Sale.
Capital's been told glass bottles were thrown, while weapons were used to attack people.
It happened outside a pub on School Road, Sale, just before 1am on Sunday 20 January 2013.
The brawl was captured on CCTV, and one man was seen falling to the ground before being repeatedly kicked and punched in the head.
Detective Constable Chris Aunins from GMP said: "This sort of violent, thuggish behaviour is completely unacceptable and sadly gives our communities an unfairly bad name.
"While it is unclear exactly what sparked this melee, it was almost certainly fuelled by alcohol and when you combine drink with violence and weapons such as glass bottles, people are going to get injured.
"It is thankful no-one suffered a serious injury as result of this behaviour.
"We have issued five CCTV stills of people involved in this disorder and I would appeal to anyone who has information about these men to come forward.
"In the cold light of day these individuals may have regretted their antics so I would appeal to them directly as well. Hand yourself in now and tell us what happened before we come knocking on your door."
