A fifth man has been arrested in relation to the attack on a man with learning difficulties in Hyde.

On 24th May the 40-year-man was travelling on the 330 bus from Bredbury. He got off at Market Street and was followed by a group of four to six youths who attacked him from behind and then stole his rucksack.

Yesterday four boys aged 13, 14 and 15 were arrested. Now a fifth male has been arrested and all five have been charged with section 18 assault and will appear in court this morning.
