Detective Sergeant Mike Ogiliev of GMP’s Oldham district said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim and I’m thankful that he was left uninjured. This happened on the edge of the town centre in the early evening so we are confident there will have been people in the area who witnessed the incident take place or saw the offender.
“We’re following all available lines of enquiry to ensure the man responsible is apprehended and faces the appropriate justice. Today we’ve released two images of men we believe could assist our investigation. If you recognise these men then please get in touch with police as a matter of urgency.”
