Shop owner Cecil Coley was taken to hospital with minor injuries and is being held on suspicion of murder.

Police also said a man, aged 19, presented himself at Manchester Royal Infirmary with stab wounds on Tuesday and was arrested on suspicion of robbery.

Both he and Mr Coley were expected to remain in hospital overnight and will be taken into police custody on Thursday.

Good on him! Yes it's not right, but who gives a fook, 2 young scumbags trying to rob an old man's livelyhood, a place he has made a living in for over 40 years. Shame he only got one of them, but hopefully the other scumbag won't be in a hurry to go on the rob again following his inevitable slap on the wrist.

As a gun was found at the scene, it will be interesting to see if it is linked to the incident. Could turn out it was an armed robbery?

If the old guy gets done for this then it's an absolute travesty!!

Some little twonks go into his shop and try to rob him with a knife and a gun?

He's 72 years old FFS!!

As already said, shame he didn't get them both and rid the country of 2 scum bags instead of just the one.

Good on the old fella - full support for him

I'm pretty sure after hearing this on the radio today that the story you posted and the link are the one and same.

Hope the old fella doesn't get done for this

They always are. Same as idiots that get killed because they run out in front of a car/bus/train etc are always "intelligent".

Good on the elderly man. Its assumed nowadays that robbers are armed and therefore when they break-in, its then 'with reasonable force' that people protect themselves. I wonder if it will be the same stupid judge that tagged the lady with the lame dog? Wonder what the outcome will be - afterall, there were 2 of them. Unfortunate he died, but hey, he would have probably killed the elderly man otherwise.
