Manchester Police Launch Manhunt after Rape

Police in Manchester have launched a major manhunt after a woman was raped at knife-point in her own home at the weekend.

The attacker broke into the 22 year old victim’s home in Old Trafford at about 7.30pm on Saturday 12 November. According to police, he held a knife to his victim’s throat and ordered her to hand over any money she had before he raped her at knife-point.

DI Carl Gillbert, of Greater Manchester police, has appealed to the public for help after the ‘brutal and terrifying rape’. He went on to say:

“This is an absolutely shocking incident and one that is sure to cause much concern to anybody who hears about what has happened. We have increased patrols to provide reassurance to the local community and carry out further enquiries.

“This man forced his way into the address and subjected his victim to a brutal and terrifying rape. We have a team of specially trained officers working to investigate, and [they are] providing her with support at this difficult time.

“The attacker was completely unknown to the woman and I would ask the people of Old Trafford to please contact the investigation team if they believe they may have seen anything suspicious yesterday evening or in the hours following the rape.”

The attacker has been described as white and of medium build, in his 20s or 30s with dark hair. The man was wearing a dark hooded top or coat and dark coloured tracksuit bottoms. Police added that the man spoke with a local accent.

Anybody with information is asked to contact police on 0161 856 7655 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
