A woman who suffered an epileptic fit in the city centre was robbed as she lay helpless on the pavement, her heartbroken husband has told the Manchester Evening News.

Magazine editor Jordan Royce has shared shocking details of the crime that took place in the early hours of Wednesday.

His 39-year-old wife, who we are not naming due to the trauma she has suffered, had been working late to meet a deadline at their office on Portland Street, on the edge of Chinatown.

As she left the office alone at around 1am she suffered a serious seizure and fell to the ground.

A group of men who were hanging around the area approached within seconds, he said.

But rather than help, Mr Joyce says they grabbed at his wife and stripped her of all possessions.

"They robbed her blind, they took everything off her," Mr Royce said.

"It was like the Walking Dead, they saw somebody who was vulnerable and went after her like piranhas."

It is understood local authority security cameras captured the incident as it unfolded.

That meant the police and ambulance service were alerted almost immediately and the suspects fled.

"The police saw what was happening and were there within two minutes," Mr Royce, 50, said.

"They were wonderful, otherwise she wouldn't be here."

When the victim regained consciousness, she realised her phone, purse, bank cards and about £40 in cash had been stolen.

Lowest of the low. Hopefully cctv will help identify them.

Someone probably filmed it, I'm surprised if it hasn't been put up on YouTube already.

Sadly it's a sign of the times that if people are around so many prefer to film this kind of attack rather than help the victims. Evil or Very Mad

It appears to be two men, but you can't see their faces. Another man approached and used his phone afterwards - perhaps to ring the police? There was another person sitting down not far away - probably a homeless person. One of the men took ages to get into the vehicle - he couldn't seem to find the right key or something. It should be easy enough to identify the vehicle at least.

I hope they get a lot of jail time - that was just evil.

Just disgusting.

Reminds me of the stories where the same thing happened after the Cafe de Paris was bombed in the Blitz.

There’s no accounting for human behavior sadly. Hopefully they will catch them.
