Police appeal: GMP release images of Moss Side pervert wanted for sexual assault

A Moss Side pervert, who followed and sexually assaulted a woman, is still on the loose and police have released an e-fit image of the man in a bid to catch him.

The 21-year-old victim was walking along Moss Lane East, near the junction with Wilmslow Road when she realised she was being followed, at 4am on Saturday June 27.

A man approached her and started talking to her and tried to kiss her before he sexually assaulted her on Ruskin Avenue.

Detective Constable Stuart Macquiban said: “We are currently investigating this and are determined to find out who is responsible. 

“However, for us to do this, we need the help from the public and witnesses.”

E-FIT: Thanks to the victim police have been able to put together this image of the offender

The offender is described as being Asian, in his late teens/early 20s, of slim build, had black hair that was short at the sides and longer on top.  He was wearing a black t-shirt and jeans.

Police have put together an e-fit image based on the victim’s description of the pervert, and released a CCTV image, and DC Macquiban is urging anyone who recognises the man to come forward.

He said: “The victim has managed to help us create an efit and we have also been able to obtain some local CCTV footage of a man we would like to speak to.

“If you recognise him, please call please as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 4223 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
