A 16-year-old boy was left with a fractured skull after being attacked and racially abused by a group of teenagers in Chadderton this week.
The Asian teenager was smashed on the head with a blunt object and knocked unconscious after being chased along Garforth Street by a gang of youths on Saturday.
He received treatment in hospital for a depressed skull fracture.
Before the attack, the gang had assaulted an Asian shopkeeper, who was punched in the head and face. The gang of four boys and two girls racially abused the man in the shop before going outside where they attacked the younger victim.
