Woman punched and sexually assaulted in Cheadle

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.

Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 0602, 101 quoting reference number 513 of 15/12/16 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
