Woman Attacked on Manchester Street

A woman was robbed and raped after being pinned to the ground in Manchester city centre last week.


The victim, an 18 year old, was approached by a man in the early hours of Wednesday 21st September, before she was pinned down by both a man and a woman, whilst a second female robbed her.

The teenager was then raped by the male assailant before all three offenders fled the scene.

A detective from Greater Manchester police’s serious sexual offences unit, DI Dave Moores said:

“This was a horrendous attack on a young woman which has, understandably, left her extremely distressed.

“We are providing her with support from specially trained officers and have launched a full investigation.”

Police appeal

Both female offenders are described as having a Manchester accent and their hair styled into ponytails.

The first woman, who restrained the victim during the robbery, is said to be of mixed race, slim and around 18 years old.

The woman who committed the robbery is also described as mixed race and to be in her early 20s.

The male offender is described as white, of slim build and in his early 20s. He is also described to have a clean shaven face and was wearing sports clothing at the time of the incident.

Greater Manchester police are asking for anyone, who may have seen group matching the description of the offenders between 2am and 3am on Wednesday 21st September around Major Street and the city’s Gay Village area, to contact them.

Anybody with information should contact police on 0161 856 1911 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
