Gang set on man in Blackburn alley assault

Lancashire Telegraph: PROBE Police at the incident in Mill Lane, Blackburn town centre PROBE Police at the incident in Mill Lane, Blackburn town centre

A MAN is recovering in hospital after being injured in an ‘unprovoked’ attack in Blackburn town centre.

The 28-year-old was left with a fractured jaw and broken ankle after being set up in the back alley of Retro bar, in Mill Lane on Tuesday.

He was assaulted after arranging to meet up with an acquaintance to amicably settle an ongoing personal issue.

But as the Blackburn man arrived with two friends, he was caught off guard by a group of up to eight Asian males waiting for him shortly after 4.45pm.

He was punched in the face before being knocked to the floor with his top pulled over his face.

The gang then continued to punch and kick the man, who is also Asian, as he lay on the ground until one of his friends alerted police. DS Marc Saunders, of Blackburn CID is leading the investigation.

He said: “This was a completely unprovoked attack. The victim arrived in Mill Lane to sort out a personal issue offering no violence at all.

“He was kicked and punched to the face and torso and left with nasty injuries including a fractured jaw and broken ankle.

“I urge anyone who was in Blackburn town centre shortly before 5pm on Tuesday to come forward.

“Someone must have seen a group of up to eight Asian males gathering in the Mill Lane area before and after the attack.

“Inquiries are currently under way and we are checking CCTV footage of the area for clues.”

The group of attackers are described as aged between 18 and 21 years old.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

Agree completely. I posted a comment on a different story that mentioned race and it was taken down. It was not offensive, it just stated facts. I dont understand how people can comment on stories regarding white people, call them chav scum etc and that gets left on. you mention the word Asian and the PC police from the L.E.T come and remove your comment. Free speech? Ha Ha Ha

Avoid Blackburn and Blackburn Town Centre at all costs! It is a dirty,dangerous, dark place. A place that allows all manner of criminality to go on unbridled. As we all know there are no go areas in Blackburn and the town is deeply segregated on religious and raciial battle lines. Honestly my advice is do not risk your life going there. There is nothing left to see and nothing left to do. The "New Labour" elite have seen to that. My advice is travel to more emlightened destinations like Preston or Manchester for a night out, You definately meet a better class of loser. Blackburn is the town that "New Labour "built and the town that they deserve. I hope that "New Labour" enjoy the spoils and reap the rewards that they truly deserve.

I cannot believe how bitter and twisted the White population of Blackburn has become. Most of the above comments are from people who have a deep hatred towards their non white co-habitants of the town. Why is this?

You will find that if you was to ask the local police for an honest answer they would tell you that by far the majority of the towns crimes are committed by white folk.

Some nugget mentions 'No Go Areas'. Where exactly are the no go areas?!?
If you personally fear going to a specific area that's your choice and probably owing to your own insecurities not because the locals won't permit you to enter!

Hate and fear mongering fools!

Saying my son got attacked by a gang in Audley, a well known 'no go zone', I thought I'd give you an example

The story of the Asian gang in London stopping people and claiming it was a muslim area, is another example that is hitting the headlines.

Maybe the innocent young lad who was simply walking down the road in Machester and was stabbed by a coward who got out of a car is simply 'insecurity'.

@ barlickmafia

I think you will find the term chav scum doesn't actually refer to any type of race, it's more a type of person that could come from a white or Asian background (plenty about in both)

Whereas the term pa*** is a little more specific wouldn't you say?!

Shocking the amount of islamaphobic comments on here.... And all in the so called great nation

Oh and just for the record

I know of many no go white areas across the uk where any non would get a kicking.

Loads around Manchester !!! And it's been happening for years.

Exactly Mr320, there are many no go areas wherever there are people who are different.

Hopefully Mr Chat will take on this new found knowledge.

That's a very good point Mr.0

Some people like complaining about the indigenous getting drunk and creating violence.

Unfortunately, it's always a simple case of violent people engaging in violent deeds and that we shouldn't tar everybody with the same brush.

Oh My Days. Are the people writing these posts for real? I cannot believe how bitter and twisted the White population of Blackburn has become.

You will find that if you was to ask the local police for an honest answer they would tell you that by far the majority of the towns crimes are committed by white folk. Some nugget mentions 'No Go Areas'. Where exactly are the no go areas?!? If you personally fear going to a specific area that's your choice and probably owing to your own insecurities not because the locals won't permit you to enter! Hate and fear mongering fools!
Saying my son got attacked by a gang in Audley, a well known 'no go zone', I thought I'd give you an example

The story of the Asian gang in London stopping people and claiming it was a muslim area, is another example that is hitting the headlines.

Maybe the innocent young lad who was simply walking down the road in Machester and was stabbed by a coward who got out of a car is simply 'insecurity'.

I'm sure poeple will give you similar examples for Brookhouse, Corpy Park, Whalley new road, ect

It's not insecurity - it's self preservation and your smoke screen won't work here Mr Chat

Shame on you Mr Daniels.

Smokescreen ?.... Many will see it as you who is creating a smoke screen, your childish attempts to fuel racial tensions when it is clearly not merited. Simple answer, if you don't like it, move away to a more tranquil part of the country ... You'll find yourself disappointed, even if you find an ALL white corner of the land. Crime is evident everywhere, as are drugs, alcohol abuse and violence in many forms!

I can't possibly comment on your son's 'alleged' assault. Was it reported to the police? Did the event merit such credibility that it was written about in the LET?

Suggesting that Audley is a No Go Zone is a mockery on any locals intelligence! The area is relatively mixed, don't tell me otherwise I have cause to drive through it every now and again! I've never heard of race riots in that part of town, in fact I've never heard of them at all. The closest anything remotely similar was contributed to the incredibly pointless EDL protest outside KFC!!

Two unifentified idiots who are at this time only identified as black youths walking around with camcorder, bullying people and making over prescribed referrals to the area as being a Muslim one barely says that it's a 'London Gang'. You clearly missed the footage of the local Muslims condemning the thugs!
That video in itself is extremely suspicious and it's availability on YouTube only adds to my sus' concerns of its validity and actual purpose. You, on the otherhand see it as cannon fodder, an opportunity to use it for your own seemingly senseless campaign of hate.

Regarding the lad who was stabbed in Manchester the other day, the person responsible was from Barkshire! Barely part of a Manchester gang but that depends on your geographical knowledge of the land, of course.
Hopefully the police and the courts will do the victims family justice and sentence the culprit accordingly. At this time we don't know the exact motives of the suspect but you'll find that no person from any community in this country would condone such a senseless stupid act.

You fail to acknowledge that violent crime including stabbings is not just unique to a particular group of persons! What you also fail to acknowledge is the number of murders committed by white youths, Stapleton being a clear example. I could mention several from memory alone but to do so would be a mock on any intelligent readers intelligence.
Yes, we have issues in this country however they are not unique to these Isles alone.
Name one country where violence does not feature?

I think your issue is that of your acceptance of people of other ethnic orgins. Is this now no longer a boring well overdated matter!! Grow up and stop spreading your hate! The vast majority of us don't want to hear it any more!!

Dear Mr chat.

Thank you for your reply. I'm sorry that giving a conflicting opinion your own has upset you so much and I'll try to be more considerate of your feelings in future.

My comment was simply a response to your view which I found was incorrect, verging on unrealistic.

I think you'll find that none of my comment was racist - simply taken from a personal viewpoint. I don't consider the indigenous to be the innocent party in this as my comment to Mr.0 will testify.

Your opinion of the idiots in London seems to be of less concern than the police who are taking it seriously. I also suggest you google Audley and queens park/Lancashire telegraph and learn some facts.

As for the coward from Berkshire; it was clearly stated as a reference to people feeling insecure, when clearly there the ever present threat of danger on our streets.

Therefore, the only real conclusion is that you have not really read my comment, you are upset that you have been questioned regarding your opinion and that you have resorted to the use of the word 'racist' when there clearly is no need.

Shame on you Mr chat.

Mr Daniels, there's clearly little point in any sort of rational discourse with yourself.
You probably think you sound clever, telling me how I feel.
I'm not upset ... I don't know you, don't care to know you and probably will never have the misfortune of ever knowing you.
You hide behind a poor debate full of half measures that only those with little intellect will agree with.

Did I at any point suggest that the police weren't dealing with the issue re 'thugs' from London as serious ? The issue was whether it merited to be a gang issue ... My point was that two men on a rampage barely amounts to a gang issue, surely you agree with that?

As for the Murder in Manchester, a Murder of any kind, despite its MO is going to cause the locals a level of insecurity! How have you linked the assault in Blackburn, where there are several a week if not daily to the Manchester Murder?

Stop clutching at straw, accept your arguement is weak and you are loosing this battle.

I'm sure it would pay more to get to know those you loath to build on understanding and respect. You might just amaze yourself.

With that said, until another time. I bid you peace, happiness and hope god showers you with humility and the ability to accept what there is, not what you want.

Mr Chat.
Just for the record.

It's not just two people on a rampage in London as they have now arrested five people.

Also, I didn't link the assault to the Manchester murder - I linked it to your comment about why people should feel insecure, which you yourself mentioned before me?

My argument may be weak in your opinion but it clearly is more structured than your own flawed hypothesis which has the incorrect data.

If this was a battle (and I thought it was a comments page) then I can safely say you've already lost and you are destined to spend the rest of your POW days wondering where it all went wrong
