Two 21-year-old girls sexually assaulted on Wilmslow Road
Police have released CCTV images of the suspect
Two 21-year-old girls have been sexually assaulted on busy Wilmslow Road.
The pair were walking together around 3am of 19th February when the man approached them from behind.
Police have now released and e-fit and CCTV images of the suspect.
Following the horrific attack, the offender continued to walk down Wilmslow Road towards Withington.
He is described as an Asian man of medium build, about 5’5″ tall and in his late 20s or early 30s.
At the time of the attack, he was wearing a dark hoody and a black baseball cap.
Constable Christopher Turner said: “This appears to be an opportunistic assault, as there is no evidence when looking at CCTV that the females have been followed or specifically targeted.”
“However, that does not mean that these assaults were not serious and I am sure they were deeply distressing for the victims.”
“I understand that such incidents can cause distress, not just to those in the local community but also those in neighbouring areas; and as a result we will be increasing patrols in the area.”
Anybody with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
