Police investigating the rape of a woman in a John Lewis car park have released an e-fit of the suspect.

Greater Manchester Police said a woman in her 20s was dragged from a parked car outside the Cheadle store by the man, who then took her into some nearby bushes and raped her.

The suspect - who ran off in the direction of nearby Wilmslow Road - is described as Asian, around 40-years-old with medium build, black hair and heavily pock-marked, open-pored skin on his face.

He is also thought to have a "thick mono-brow" and is said to have been wearing black jogging bottoms at the time.

Detective Inspector Roger Edwards from GMP’s Stockport division said: "I am appealing to anyone that thinks they may recognise the man in this efit, who is described as having deep pock-type scars on his face, to get in touch. Or did you perhaps see this man anywhere around the retail park near to John Lewis or Sainsburys on Friday evening?

Anyone with information can contact police at Stockport on 0161 856 9770 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
