Police have launched an investigation after footage emerged of a woman having her thumb sliced off by a knife welding man in a violent confrontation.
The violent incident is believed to have taken place in the Hyde area of Greater Manchester on Wednesday September 2 at around 6pm.
Distressing and graphic footage showed a woman dressed in purple tracksuit backing away while a man dressed in a white jumper and black shorts menacingly approaches her.
An argument already seems to be under way before the video began being recording, while the voices of both involved in the video become raised.
Footage shared by the Manchester Evening News then shows the argument quickly intensifying and turning violent with the woman appearing to swing a punch at the man.
He then produces a large knife from his waistband and makes a slashing movement towards the victim.
