Greater Manchester Police have said an 18-year-old girl has been robbed and sexually assaulted as she walked home in Oldham.

The incident occurred at 2.30am Monday May 5th, when the teenager was walking home along London Road after a night out.

When she crossed the road, she realised she was being followed by a man and walked into a nearby ginnel.

He grabbed her and dragged her to the floor before he took her handbag.

He demanded her phone and searched her bag, taking her phone and debit cards. He then tried to pull a necklace from her before sexually assaulting her. He ran off towards London Road.

The man is described as being black, between 5ft 7in and 5ft 8in tall, in his 20s/30s of medium build, wore a snap back cap and a red jumper.

Detective Constable Andrew Swettenham said: “This man was aggressive towards his victim and she has understandably been left shocked. Not only did he drag her to the floor and steal her property, he went that step further and sexually assaulted her.

“I would ask anyone who may have either witnessed the attack or believe they recognise the description of the man, to contact us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 8927 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
