Manchester police have issued a Man Hunt after the attempted rape of a 10 year old girl.
A suspected sex attacker is being hunted by police after he allegedly tried to rape a 10-year-old girl.
The girl had been with friends but was separated from them at around 2pm on Saturday on Kincraig Close in the Openshaw area of Manchester.
A man approached her and then tried to rape her in open land nearby, police said.
Detective Chief Inspector James Riley, from GMP’s City of Manchester team, said: “What happened to this young girl is understandably very upsetting and specially trained officers will continue to support her in any way they can.
“Parents and neighbours will be concerned and we have stepped up our visible police patrols throughout the coming days and nights. If you do have any worries then please feel free to approach them and they will try and assist.”
DCI Riley added: “So far we have a number of witnesses who are being extremely helpful, while we will also be continuing to knock on doors in the area to see if anyone else saw anything suspicious.
“Extensive CCTV is being examined and I can confirm that we haven’t received any other reports of this nature in the area over the weekend
