Police in Manchester are hunting a man who tried to rape a child in broad daylight.

The brave girl, who is of primary school age, managed to flee from her attacker and asked a nearby dog walker for help.

She had become separated from her group of friends when the man approached her and tried to attack her on ‘open land’ in Openshaw on Saturday afternoon.

Despite attempts to find the offender he remains at large, but police are now patrolling the area.

The man is described as being ‘of Asian appearance’, in his 20s, with a slim build and wearing a dark coat.

Detective Chief Inspector James Riley, from GMP’s City of Manchester team, told Manchester Evening News: ‘What happened to this young girl is understandably very upsetting and specially trained officers will continue to support her in any way they can.

‘Parents and neighbours will be concerned and we have stepped up our visible police patrols throughout the coming days and nights.

‘Extensive CCTV is being examined and I can confirm that we haven’t received any other reports of this nature in the area over the weekend.

‘With the help of this brave girl and the community we have a good description of the attacker and if anyone recognises it or recalls seeing a man matching that description in the area, then please call us.’

Anyone with any information should call CID on 0161 856 1146 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
