Homeowner ‘duped’ as 200 attend ‘out of hand’ party in Manchester | UK News
Police officers were attacked by revellers after a house party “got out of hand” in Manchester.
Up to 200 people had gathered at the rented “holiday property” in Levenshulme after the home’s owner was “duped” into thinking that far fewer would be there.
Officers said the partygoers “terrified” neighbours who reported drunken behaviour and excessive levels of noise.
Some of the revellers turned violent when police arrived on Delamere Road shortly before 10.30pm on Friday.
Greater Manchester Police said items were thrown at officers as they tried to clear the house.
No arrests have been made, but detectives have said they would like to hear from anyone who was at the party.
Detective Constable Chris Henderson added: “Not only had the partygoers duped the home owner into believing there would be far fewer people at the property, the party got out of hand.
“They terrified local residents in their own homes, then reacted with violence towards police officers when they attempted to clear the party.
“This behaviour is simply unacceptable.
“We are currently investigating crimes of violent disorder and will be reviewing CCTV to identify those involved.”
