Walkden e-fit

Detectives investigating the sexual assault of a woman and assault of her son in Salford have released an e-fit of the suspect.

At around 6pm on Friday 17 July 2020, police received a report that a woman and her son had been involved in a struggle with a man near Hilton Lane, in Worsley.

An investigation was launched and it was established that, at around 5.30pm, a woman in her 20s had been approached from behind by a man who grabbed her by the mouth and pulled her towards a wooded area.

During the struggle, the victim’s one-year-old son – who was in a pram – was knocked over.

Thankfully, neither the woman or her son were injured.

No arrests have been made.

DC Mike Taylor, of GMP’s Salford district, said: “This was a terrifying experience for the woman, who was pushing a pram at the time. I would like to thank her for everything she has done to assist us with our enquiries so far.

“We are committed to identifying the person responsible so have released this e-fit in the hope that there are members of the public out there who can provide us with lines of enquiry.

“If that is you or you have any other information which may be of interest to us, I ask you to contact us or Crimestoppers, anonymously.”
