Teenager sexually assaulted in street - Wigan
Tuesday 18th May, 2010

A teenage girl was sexually assaulted by a man in the street in Wigan.

At about 7.20 pm on Monday 10 May 2010, the 17-year-old girl was walking along Whitecroft Road, Hawkley Hall, Wigan, when a man walked up to her from behind.

He grabbed the waistband of her trousers, pulled them down to her thighs to reveal her underwear.

The girl turned around to confront him and he ran off.

She was not injured but was left very upset by the attack.

Police Constable Angela Browne, based at Wigan Police Station, said: "This attack was extremely upsetting for the girl and I can understand it has worried the community significantly.

"We are looking on this very seriously and doing all we can to find the person responsible.

"If you saw something that might help us or know something that could be relevant to our investigation, please contact me."

Anyone with information is asked to call police in Wigan on 0161 856 7124 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
