Wednesday 23 October: 12-year-old girl sexually assaulted

Police are investigating after a 12-year-old girl was sexually assaulted as she walked along a passageway in Rochdale.

At around 8.15am on Friday 18 October the girl was walking along a ginnel leading from Links Road towards Newhouse Road and Siddall Moor School when she saw a man.

As she past the man in the passageway she was sexually assaulted before the man left and walked onto Links Road towards Hopwood Avenue.

The man is described as being white, in his early 20s, of skinny build, 5ft 7in to 5ft 11in tall, of short brown hair, had big eyebrows, wore dark trousers and a grey hooded top. He was carrying a plastic rucksack type bag.

Detective Constable Nick Price from Middleton Police Station said: "From what we have been told, we believe the offender was stood at the entrance of the ginnel at around 8am before he has walked inside, when he has seen the girl walk towards him.

"I would ask anyone who may have seen a man fitting this description, hanging around the ginnel and acting in a suspicious manner to contact us. A woman was seen walking her dog out of the ginnel onto Links Road, passing the offender prior to the incident so I would directly appeal to her to come forward and speak with us."

Young offenderYoung offenderPolice are linking three sexual assaults in Manchester. 

At 6.15pm on Saturday 21 September 2013, a 27-year-old woman was walking through The University of Manchester's grounds near to Lloyd Street North when she was approached from behind and grabbed. 

She screamed and the offender, described as being in his mid-teens and mixed race threatened her. He grabbed her again before running away.

Minutes later, at around 6.30pm, a 21-year-old woman was leaving John Rylands library, Oxford Road, when she was approached by a boy who made lewd comments. The woman carried on walking onto Moss Lane East before she was sexually assaulted. She describes this boy as a young Asian boy aged 12 years wearing green jeans and wearing glasses. 

The third assault took place on Saturday 5 October 2013 at around 2.15pm. A 32-year-old woman was using her mobile phone whilst walking through Manchester Science Park (pictured above), Lloyd Street South. She was approached by two young boys and sexually assaulted by one of them described as being Asian, 12-13 years old, of slim build, with small frame wearing baggy trousers and carrying a rucksack on his back. 

She pushed the boy away but he approached her again and sexually assaulted her for a second time before running off towards Pencroft Way in company with the second boy, also described as a young Asian boy. 

Detective Constable Pam Collins from Longsight Police Station said: "After speaking to the women, we have managed to complete an evo fit of the offender. As you can see from the image he looks fairly young which makes these assaults even more shocking. 

"After each woman has told the offender to go away he has followed this up with violent threats so we are keen to find this individual as soon as possible. 

"I would ask anyone who either recognises the image, witnessed any of the assaults or may have fallen victim to this person to call us." 

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 4223 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
