Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was sexually assaulted in Cheadle last month.

The woman had left a pub with a man on December 17th just before 11pm and was walking on a grassed area just off Stockport Road with him, when he asked her to go to a hotel with him.

The man punched her in the face when she refused, before throwing her to the ground. He picked her up and they carried on walking for a short time, before he sexually assaulted her and then fled in the direction of Parrs Wood.

The woman went over to a group of youths who were sat on a nearby bench and police are keen to speak to them as potential witnesses.

Help and support will always be there for people who want to come forward and report sexual offences.

“If you were part of the group that was sat on the bench that evening, please get in touch with police, as you may have information that could help our investigation.

“If you saw what happened, or saw the man and woman walking together shortly before the attack, please get in touch.”

– Detective Constable Jeanette Lamb of GMP’s Stockport Borough
