Shocking CCTV is released in hunt for man who punched 18-year-old woman unconscious after she reject

CCTV has captured the shocking moment a teenager was punched unconscious on a night out after she told a man who was following her: 'I'm sorry, I'm not interested'.

Gabrielle Walsh, 18, was approached by the attacker and two other men when she was out in central Manchester with a friend on Saturday night.

Footage shows the man throwing a punch before Gabrielle falls to the ground as panicked bystanders rush to help.

The college student and her friend, Kyle McKeown, 18, who was also attacked and is seen collapsing onto the road, had tried to walk away from the men, but they kept following and trying to talk to the pair, Gabrielle said.

In an attempt to get the men to go away, Gabrielle told them 'I'm sorry, I'm not interested'.

But her comments sparked a row which led to one of the men turning violent.

Police have now launched an investigation into the incident and are looking to speak to three men who are 'highlighted running from the area' in the CCTV footage.

Senior Investigating Officer, Constable Ben Lomax, from GMP's City Centre Division said: ‘We have released this shocking footage in the hope it helps us identify those responsible for this appealing and cowardly attack.

‘Clearly, there were numerous people who not only witnessed this attack but will have seen the three men hastily departing the scene shortly afterwards.

He continued: 'Imagine if you or a member of your family was subjected to this kind of violence? You would quite rightly hope the perpetrators are caught.

'Do you recognise the three men or the clothes they are wearing? One in particular has a distinctive way of running. Their clothes, too, are quite distinctive.

'Perhaps you saw three people like this earlier on during that evening, or later in the night. If you know something, please get in touch as soon as possible.'

My view: So because she said no to his he advances, then his liking turned to aggression. He is absolutely disgusting. I hope he gets long prison sentence.
