Detective Constable Tom Sutcliffe said: “This was a terrifying attack where not only was a man viciously assaulted, but serious threats were made to his family as well, leaving them fearing for their safety.

“The behavior of these offenders was both ruthless and brutal and will absolutely not be tolerated in Greater Manchester.

“These sentences are very much deserved, and I can only hope that this period behind bars gives these men the time they need to reflect on the hurt they have caused through their violent and senseless actions.”
