Image released of man sought in relation to Rochdale sex attack
Main article content
Officers investigating the sexual assault of a teenage girl in Rochdale have released the image of a man we'd like to speak to about the incident.
We were contacted about the incident last summer, in which a man is understood to have taken the victim - a 13-year-old girl - down an alleyway in the town centre and proceeded to sexually assault her.
The victim was able to force the offender off of her before running away from him.
A wide-range of follow-up enquiries have been made as part of our investigation but so far we have been unable to arrest a suspect in relation to this attack.
We have obtained an image of a man - used on a social media account that was contacting the victim before the incident - as we believe he could hold important information.
Anyone who could identify him or know of his whereabouts is asked to call us on 0161 856 8549quoting incident 2038 of 26/07/2021.
Details can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
