Woman raped in park
Saturday 14th June, 2008

A 19-year-old woman has been raped in a park in Ashton-in-Makerfield.

The victim left Mad Jacks with a man she had met at around 3am this morning, Saturday 14 June 2008.

As they walked along Wigan Road, the man forced the woman into Jubilee Park and raped her. He then walked off towards Bolton Road.

The man is described as white, in his mid 20s to early 30s, 5ft 6in tall, of slim build with dark brown hair in a Mohican style. He was wearing a red T-shirt and blue jeans and spoke with a foreign accent.

Detective Sergeant Clare Devlin of Wigan CID 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."

Anyone with information is asked to call Wigan CID on 0161 856 5307 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
