His father, Paul Fevre, said his son was approached by a man who made derisive remarks about an item of clothing he was wearing. He said the thug then abused Morgan with a vile homophobic slur before attacking him.

Morgan, who has since been discharged from hospital, was attacked around 1.35am on April 10 after a night out with friends on Charlotte Street, near Manchester’s Chinatown.

In a statement providing an update on the case today, Greater Manchester Police said: “Manchester officers have released images of two people they wish to speak to in connection with a serious attack in the city centre.

“The Charlotte Street incident at around 1.35am on April 10 left victim Morgan Fevre, 22, in hospital with facial and head injuries.

“After reviewing the CCTV, officers released images of a man and woman they would like to speak to.”

Detective Constable Lucy Hatton of GMP City of Manchester CID said: “This was an unprovoked attack in the street of which the victim has very little recollection.

“Morgan was hit in the head and then fell to the ground and spent 10 days in hospital being treated for head and facial injuries.

“He has now been discharged from hospital but is still suffering from the after-effects of the incident. We would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information – they should call the police on our dedicated number 0161 856 6049 quoting Incident 247 of 4/10/2022.”

Morgan’s father added: “In the year 2022, people will be called by those names and these things will happen to them – it’s absolutely horrifying.

“Morgan went to Manchester and thought it was great – you get to go out there and be who you are. Then this happens.

“It set him back, but we’re all here for him. Without a shadow of a doubt, one of the reasons he came to Manchester was the city’s inclusiveness.”

Police continue to appeal to anyone with information about the attack to come forward.
