Published

on

Police are today appealing for information following an incident in which a serious sexual assault occurred.

The incident occurred around 3.45am on Saturday 1st February 2014.

Police received a call to School Road in Sale after a 21-year-old woman was assaulted.

Police attended and upon further investigation it transpired that she had been walking home from a night out when a man requested a cigarette.

He took her by the hand and led her to a nearby alleyway where he gave her a rolled-up cigarette.

The woman next recalls coming round and noticing that some of her clothing had been removed.

It is believed she was seriously sexually assaulted by the man.

He is described as white, 5ft 7in tall, in his late 40s or early 50s, of slim to medium build but with a long chubby face. He had blonde hair, a gap in his front lower teeth next to his fang and spoke with an Irish accent. He was wearing a red top, jeans and jacket.

Detectives have released a CCTV image of a man they now wish to trace.

Detective Sergeant Claire Phythian, from GMP’s Serious Sexual Offences Unit, said: “The victim is understandably distraught and we are offering her whatever support we can at this deeply upsetting time.

“While she cannot recall in great detail at this time exactly what happened, we firmly believe she was the victim of a serious sexual assault.

“I want to reassure the local community that we are working hard to find the person responsible.

“I would ask people to look closely at the man in the CCTV image we have released and if you know this person please contact us.

“The woman had been out drinking with friends and it is extremely plausible that she was targeted by her attacker because of the very fact she had been drinking.

“I would encourage those who are going out in the area this weekend – or in fact are going on a night out anywhere – to always pace your drinks, stay with friends and where possible get a taxi home.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 6580, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
