A 24 year old man has been arrested after a teenager was raped in Deane in Bolton last August.

The 15-year-old girl was raped at a property in Deane.

The victim is being supported by specialist officers.

The man has been arrested on suspicion of rape and sexual activity with a child. He has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Janet Malone of the Bolton district said: “I would like to thank the public and the officers involved who helped us to find and arrest a dangerous wanted man in Bolton.

“This was a harrowing attack on a young girl and I hope this arrest gives some comfort to her and her family through this difficult period of their lives.

“Although we have made an arrest our investigation has not ended. If you have any information that you think could assist our enquiries, then please come forward as soon as possible.”
