Police have released the image of a man wanted in connection with a rape in Manchester city centre. At around 2.30am on Sunday 10 February 2013, the 24-year-old victim left Poptastic night club with a man and was walking along Bloom Street. As they got to the junction with Harter Street, she was raped. They both walked back to the nightclub and went inside before the victim later reported the incident to police. The man is described as being of mixed race, in his mid 20s or early 30s, of slim build, over 6ft tall, had a shaved head and was clean shaven. He wore a white t-shirt that had a large design on the front and dark blue jeans.

The victim had met a man at the club and left with him before she was subjected to this horrific crime. She is obviously still shaken after her ordeal and has been spoken to by specialist officers. “The image we have obtained from the club CCTV is very clear and we believe someone must know who this person is. If you do, I would ask you to contact police. I would reassure members of the public that incidents of this type are extremely rare."
