Woman, 19, raped after night out

A 19-year-old woman has been raped in a park in Greater Manchester.

Detectives say the victim left Mad Jacks bar in Ashton-in-Makerfield in the early hours with a man she had met there who offered to walk her home.

As they walked along Wigan Road just after 0300 BST, the man forced her into Jubilee Park and raped her before walking off towards Bolton Road.

The man is described as Asian, aged 25-30, about 5ft 6in (1.68m) tall, slim and has dark hair in a Mohican style.

He was wearing a red T-shirt and blue jeans.

Det Sgt Clare Devlin said: "The man offered to walk the victim home and she agreed. He has then broken that trust in the most horrendous way and attacked her.

"I am appealing to anyone that may have been in Mad Jacks last night or that may have been close to Jubilee Park in the early hours of this morning and may have seen anyone matching the description of this man to come forward."
