This is the man wanted by police after an attempted rape in Walkden, Salford.

The offender is described as white, of stocky build, in his mid-30s. He was wearing an all-black tracksuit, a black baseball cap and white Nike trainers with a white tick.

Detective Sergeant Mark Toker, of GMP’s Salford Borough, said: “Since this incident was reported to police we have carried out extensive enquiries and have now managed to produce an efit.

“We are treating this extremely concerning incident as a priority and I would urge anybody who believes they recognise the person pictured to contact police.”

He continues: “Just before the attack took place, the woman passed a number of people in the field including a family, an elderly couple and some teenagers on bikes.

“These people are not in any trouble but they may have key information which could help us with this case.”

The victim, a woman in her 30s, was walking her two dogs around 7pm on Sunday night when the attacker approached her asking for the time.

The attacker grabbed the woman and pulled her into some trees where he threatened her with a knife and ordered her to hand over her jewellery.

On wasteland near to Bedford Avenue in Walkden, the victim bravely fought off the attacker as he tried to rape her.

DS Toker urges people to come forward with any information regarding the incident.

Anyone with any information should call 0161 856 8361, quoting incident number 2002 of 23/04/17, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
