A young woman was punched unconscious by a man and broke her leg after a random attack at a taxi rank.
Holly Talbot, 23, was on her way home with her friend after a night out when they were targeted by a complete stranger when they were set upon by a stranger.
The travel agent was taken to hospital where she needed extensive surgery to fit 12 bolts and two metal plates in her left leg.
Manchester Evening News reports that has been told it will be months before she is able to walk properly again.
Now Holly, from Manchester, is urging anyone who has information about her attacker to come forward.
Police are investigating but Holly is also offering her own reward of £1,000 for information that leads to a conviction.
Any information should be reported directly to Greater Manchester Police.
"I just think it’s absolutely disgusting," Holly said.
"I didn’t even say one word to this man."
Holly says she and her pal entered the offices of the Magnum Whiteline Taxis on Bury New Road at around 11pm last Saturday night.
"My friend asked the woman in the office if there was a toilet she could use," said Holly.
"There was a man and a woman in there as well and the woman just turned to my friend and said ‘were you f***ing talking to me?’
"Then the man turned on her and said ‘what did you just say?’
"He just started smacking her, punching her in the face. She’s covered in bruises.
"I took my shoes off to go outside, I was shouting ‘what are you doing? Stop it’.
"I tried to break it up and got smacked myself. He punched me full in the face and knocked me out on the pavement.
"I must have fallen funny.
"I woke up in some guy’s arms who carried me in and put me on a bench."
Holly said the attacker simply left in a taxi, with a crowd of around six to eight people watching on.
"When the ambulance got there they said I had broken my leg straight away," said Holly.
Holly was in hospital for four days before being allowed home after her surgery.
She has been given crutches and a wheelchair and is now having to stay with her nan.
"I just want anyone to come forward with information to catch this man," Holly added.
"I want him to to go to prison. Some people are just disgusting."
Greater Manchester Police has been approached for comment.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
