A teenage boy was attacked with a broken bottle in Piccadilly Gardens last night

Another violent episode in Piccadilly Gardens has led to a teenage boy being injured. 

Police were called to the city centre spot at around 9.20pm last night, where they discovered the teenager with a laceration to his head.

Initially believed to be a stabbing, recent reports confirm the attack occurred with a bottle.

The boy's injuries are apparently being treated as "not serious."

GMP say the teenager sustained his head wounds during a “targeted confrontation between two groups”.

No arrests have been confirmed.

This is the third time in a week that police have been called to cordon off this part of the city centre - with crisis meetings held on Monday between the council and GMP.

A teenager was knifed last Friday, whilst four rough sleepers were attacked on Sunday evening in a shocking stabbing spree.

Chief Inspector Zac Fraser commented: "Officers are investigating an assault which took place in Piccadilly Gardens at 2120hrs on Thursday 16th January 2020.

"A male suffered a laceration to his head, caused by a bottle, it is not believed a knife was used."
