A search is started after a 16-year-old schoolgirl was pushed into an alley and forced in Rochdale.
Greater Manchester Police has announced a description of a male they want to speak to after the horrific episode at around 5 pm yesterday.
Detectives say the girl, who was dressing her school uniform, was walking through an alley off Birch Road when she was thrust to the ground by a man who abused her.
The offender is considered to be either black or of dual-heritage, 5ft 8ins tall, of a medium build.
He is represented as aged approximately 30 and 40 years old.
At the time of the episode, he was wearing blue jeans and smelt powerfully of aftershave.
A cordon resides in place whilst investigation work is carried out in the spot.
Neighbors said police were seen searching nearby fields and woodland late at the back of Wardale Academy, the Manchester Evening News reports.
Police say the girl is not a pupil at the school.
Superintendent Richard Hunt, of GMP’s Rochdale district, said:
“This was a very painful incident for the young girl.
“Her happiness is a top priority for us, and we have specialist officers currently helping her as we try to establish the full circumstances surrounding this episode.
“I would like to encourage the public that we are doing all we can to trace the person liable and bring them to justice, and you will see increased patrols around the area in the coming days.
“This event took place at a relatively busy time of day, and I am requesting for any witnesses or anyone who has seen something suspicious to contact us.
“Even the tiniest detail could be of the utmost importance in helping us with our analyses.”
