Police have have released an E-fit of a suspected wanted after an 11-year-old girl was sexually assaulted the street in Manchester.

The incident happened outside a shop on Northmoor Road in Longsight at around 5.45pm on Tuesday, October 28.

The man approached the girl from behind and sexually assaulted her, before running away towards along Northmoor Road towards Crowcroft Park.

The girl ran off and police were informed.

The man is described as Asian, about 30-years-old, between 5ft 6in and 5ft 7in tall, of skinny build and has dark hair and short stubble.

He was wearing a black fleece and black trousers.

Thankfully, the child was not hurt, but she is understandably distressed and we are determined to find this man.

We are hopeful that someone will recognise the man in the E-fit and I would urge you to contact police immediately if you do.

I would also encourage parents to talk to their children about not talking to strangers and I want to stress to kids that if they approached in this manner to walk away and tell an adult."
