A MAN has been charged in connection with the attempted rape of a woman in Bury.

Anestis Soumelidis, 27, of Kitchener Street appeared at Bury Magistrates’ Court on Monday 12 October 2009 and has been remanded in custody.

At about 3.30pm on Sunday 11 October 2009, a 25-year-old woman, who was in the toilets of the Wellington Public House, was approached by a man who grabbed her by the throat and hair and attempted to rape her.

After a short struggle the woman was able to fight off her attacker.
