Sexual Assault: Woman Attacked in Own Home

A police investigation has been launched following the sexual assault of a woman in her own home in December, while her children slept in another room.

Incident

According to police, the victim was in bed in her home in Heald Green, Stockport, when she heard repeated knocking at her front door.

When she answered, a stranger grabbed her by the throat, before pushing her to the ground and sexually assaulting her. The attacker only fled the scene due to the 35 year old victim’s loud screams.

Police investigation

The offender is described as being in his early twenties, Asian, around 6ft tall and of a slim build. He was wearing dark blue loose fitting jeans, and a dark green zip-up hooded top at the time of the sexual assault.

The sexual assault took place just before 10.30pm on Wednesday 21st December.

DI Julia Bowden of GMP’s Stockport borough said:

“This was a terrifying attack for both the victim and her children who heard their mother’s screams.

“They are currently being supported by specially trained officers. Incidents of this nature are horrifying but rare and we are doing everything in our power to find the man responsible.

“We have a team of highly skilled detectives working round the clock and there will be additional officers patrolling the area.

“I would urge anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area at the time to please contact us immediately.”

The incident comes just weeks after a similar attack in Old Trafford, Manchester in which a 22-year-old woman was raped at knifepoint in her home in mid-November. So far, police have not linked the two attacks.
