A forty four year old man has been arrested by Greater Manchester Police over the rape of a sixteen year old girl in Rochdale last week.
The arrest comes a day after a fifty seven year old was arrested and released without charge.
Superintendent Richard Hunt, of GMP’s Rochdale district, said: “We are continuing to provide specialist support to the victim and her family following her incredibly traumatic ordeal and our thoughts remain with them.
“Our investigation is continuing to move very quickly as we have a dedicated team of detectives working round the clock to identify the man responsible for this awful attack.
“Whilst we have a man in custody this morning, our enquiries remain ongoing and we would continue to ask anyone who witnessed anything suspicious around the time of this incident or anyone with any information to please get in touch.”
