Geography student arrested in rape investigation


Manchester student arrested over alleged rape on Friday morning.

A University of Manchester student has today been arrested in connection with the rape of a 19 year old girl.

The 20 year old geography student is accused of rape following a night out at Factory, where the two met.

The incident is said to have taken place at the victim’s home in the Whitworth Park area in the early hours of Friday morning.

Manchester Student Safety, a Facebook group set up by Greater Manchester Police drew criticism from students earlier after publishing a picture of the suspect on its page. The photo was later removed.

The student is still in police custody.
