Police: Boy's sex crimes "shocked everybody"

"These crimes shocked everybody, not least the five women who were traumatised as a result of being sexually assaulted by this young boy.

"For such a young boy to have committed such appalling attacks is both disturbing and unusual.

"However, this young boy has not yet been sentenced before a court so at this stage, I do not want to speculate on his motive or my own private thoughts on the offender. "

– Detective Chief Inspector Colin Larkin, Greater Manchester Police
