Police have increased patrols after a fourteen year old girl was raped in Crowcroft Park on Sunday night.

The teenager had crossed the park from Stockport Road on her way home around 11.30 when she was raped.

The 14-year-old returned home and told her mum what had happened, who then alerted police.

A scene was established in Crowcroft Park while officers carried out initial enquiries.

One of the offenders is described as an Asian male, in his thirties, with a short black beard and dark hair. He was wearing a black t-shirt with black shorts and a black body warmer, carrying a dark bag.

The other offender is described as an Asian male, around 35, with a long black beard and black hair. He was wearing a black t-shirt with dark blue long shorts and Nike trainers.

Detective Inspector Geoffrey Machent of GMP’s City of Manchester Division, said: “While people will be concerned that this has happened to a young teenager in their community, I’d stress we are doing all we can to find the people responsible.

“The teenager is being looked after by specially trained officers while our door-to-door and CCTV enquiries continue.

“You will see increased officers in the park and around the area, they are there for you and I’d encourage you to speak to them if you saw two men acting suspiciously on Sunday night.

“Also, if you were in the area that night and saw anything that could help with our investigation, please get in touch with our local team on 0161 856 4409.”
