HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN He attacked a teenage girl

MANCHESTER Police have issued an image of an Asian man wanted in connection with a sex attack on a teenage girl.

The CCTV image shows a man getting onto the number 18 bus at The Trafford Centre a short time before the attack.

The incident took place at about 6pm on Tuesday 24 November 2009. The 17-year-old victim was on the bus travelling from The Trafford Centre to Altrincham when the offender tried to befriend her.

The victim got off on Chester Road in Stretford and was followed by the offender onto Edge Lane.

He then sexually assaulted the girl near to Stretford Metro Link station, before running off towards Edge Lane.

The victim was left uninjured, but traumatised by the incident

The offender is described as in his mid 20s, about 5ft 7in tall with short black hair, brown eyes, a medium build and wearing a hooped top.

Det Srgt Alison Barber, of Trafford Public Protection Unit, said: “Over the last two-and-a-half months we have had a team of detectives working on this.

“We initially carried out forensic work, then circulated the suspect’s details across the force and have been working closely with the victim, who remains deeply affected by what happened to her.

“We have reassured the victim that we will do everything in our power to catch this pervert and we are confident that someone will recognize his image.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call Trafford police 0161 8567573 or independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
