Thug Stabs Woman in the neck with a syringe in a apparently random attack, Manchester

A thug plunged a hypodermic needle into the neck of a woman as she stood at her front door in a gruesome but apparently random attack.

After knocking at the front door, the attacker issued a sinister threat to his 41-year-old victim before thrusting the syringe in her neck and running off.

The woman, whose name has not been released, was rushed to hospital for treatment, where doctors tested her for hepatitis and Aids.

Hypodermic needles are commonly used by heroin addicts. Used needles can harbour blood-borne diseases that can permanently affect the lives of those who contract them.
She was later discharged after tests came back all clear.

Today, Greater Manchester Police said officers were investigating a theory that the woman was attacked in a horrifying case of mistaken identity.

The thug struck just after noon on Sunday July 29, after knocking on the door of the woman's home in Blackley, Manchester. Read More
