Detectives are appealing for information after a woman was sexually assaulted in her own home in Heald Green on Tuesday night.
The 35-year-old was in bed with her young children when she heard a repeated knocking at the front door of her home in Heald Green.
She opened the front door and an unknown man grabbed her by throat and pushed her to the ground.
He then sexually assaulted her before he fled because of her loud screams.
The attacker was described as Asian, slim build, about 20-years-old and 6ft tall. He was wearing a dark green zip up hooded top and dark blue baggy jeans.
Officers searched the area last night and will be continuing enquiries today.
Detective Inspector Julia Bowden of GMP’s Stockport borough, said: “This was a terrifying attack for both the victim and her children who heard their mother’s screams.
“They are currently being supported by specially trained officers.
“Incidents of this nature are horrifying but rare and we are doing everything in our power to find the man responsible.
“We have a team of highly skilled detectives working round the clock and there will be additional officers patrolling the area.
“I would urge anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area at the time to please contact us immediately.”
