Greater Manchester Police are appealing to the public for further information after four separate assaults in the Cheetham Hill area in the last week using a knife.
The assaults have all taken place in the late evening and early hours around Crumpsall Lane, Seymour Road, Albyn Avenue/Beckenham Road and Cheetham Hill Road.
Victims of all four attacks that received non-life-threatening injuries are being supported by specialist officers as investigations continue.
Members of the local community are asked to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity or information by calling 999 in an emergency or 101 immediately. Do not approach the person in question.
Detectives would also like to speak to the man regarding these incidents as they believe he could assist with the investigations.

I can assure residents in the area we are taking these incidents very seriously and conducting all lines of enquiry to ensure we find the person responsible.
“We have increased patrols in the local area and will continue to do so, but if you have any concerns at all, please do talk to our local officers for reassurance and guidance as we are continuing to exhaust all available lines of enquiry to ensure we can continue to keep our communities safe.”
