Police have released a picture showing a man's injuries after he was violently robbed as he was yards from home.
The 29-year-old man was walking along Walmersley Road in Bury at about 11pm on Saturday 1 September 2012, when he was struck to the face causing him to fall to the floor.
The offenders then launched into an attack on the victim, punched him in the face and body, and took money from his pockets.
They then left the victim barely conscious in the street and ran off.
Detective Constable Dave Potter said: "These are offenders who did not even hesitate to use violence on their victim to steal from him, and we have launched an investigation to try and find them.
"The picture we have released shows just how savage this attack was.
"I would therefore urge anyone who may have witnessed this attack or have any information about who is responsible to call us."
