A Salford teenager has been stabbed with a piece of wood and hit across the face in a vicious attack.

The 18 year old, was listening to music as he walked along Dronfield Road, on the afternoon of Friday 21st Septemeber.

He was grabbed from behind by his attackers near Pendleton College.

They hit him across the face with a large piece of wood.

The blow knocked the victim to the ground. He managed to get to his feet but was then stabbed in his lower back and bum.

The offenders ran off towards Bolton Road while the victim managed to get to Pendleton Collegeand get help.

He was taken to hospital for treatment to stab wounds, a punctured lung and facial injuries.

Detective Constable Cathy Blain of Swinton CID said: ''This appears to be a motiveless attack on a young student.

While his black ‘Skull Candy’ earphones were taken, other valuable property was not so I do not believe the motive was robbery.

This young man is continuing to recover from the very serious injuries he sustained and I am keen to hear from anyone who, saw anything, knows why he may have been attacked or who might be responsible."
