A 65 year old man has been arrested after claims that a woman had been sexually assaulted a number of times whilst attending routine doctor’s appointments in the Broughton Park area of Salford.

The man who was working as a doctor when the offences took place remains in custody for questioning.

Detective Inspector Thomas Willis, of GMP’s Salford district, said: “Any sexual assault is deeply traumatising for any victim and I want to reiterate Greater Manchester Police’s firm commitment to investigating reports thoroughly.

“We have a team of specialist officers supporting the woman through this distressing time, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for coming forward and showing true bravery.

“If anyone holds information that they think could assist our enquiries I would plea with you to please come forward. Any information passed to us will be dealt with in the strictest confidence and treated sensitively.”
