A gang of thugs battered a teenage boy unconscious and stripped him naked before stealing just £11.
The 17-year-old victim was repeatedly beaten with a metal bar and a chair leg during the violent and humiliating assault in Manchester.
He was knocked unconscious and woke up minutes later to find himself naked after his attackers had stripped him and thrown his clothes away.
He had also been robbed during the ordeal which happened at around 5pm on Tuesday on the Abraham Moss playing fields in Crumpsall.
The victim was treated at North Manchester Hospital for a fractured skull.
The only description he has been able to give police is that one of his attackers was an Asian man and was wearing a red bandana.
Detective Constable Robert Ashurst, of Greater Manchester Police , said: “This was a terrifying experience for the victim, who is really young.
“He has been subjected to a cruel and vicious attack for the sake of just £11, but I’d like to stress that incidents like this are thankfully rare.
“There must have been a few people about on the playing fields at that time and who saw some or all of the attack. I’m appealing for anyone who knows who was responsible to contact us.”
