Efit released after sexual assaults – Oldham

March 6, 2013, 2:06 pm

Police have released an efit of a man wanted in connection with five sexual assaults by touching in Oldham.

The first happened at 6.05pm on Tuesday 18 December 2012 as a 15-year-old girl walked along Ashton Old Road towards Oldham.  She was followed by a teenager before she was assaulted.

Just after 6pm on Friday 28 December 2013, a 21-year-old woman was walking along Copster Hill Road when she was approached and asked for the time.  She told him, started to walk away and was assaulted.  He ran away towards Alvingham Avenue.

At 4pm on Sunday 30 December 2012, a 17-year-old was jogging in the Lorne Street area when she was approached and asked the time.  She carried on running before she was grabbed and touched.  The offender ran towards the Windsor Road direction.

On Friday 4 January 2013, a 16-year-old girl was walking home along Broadway Street when someone walked up to her and asked her for the time.  When she told him she did not have it, he made a lewd comment and assaulted her before he ran off down Broadway Street.

On Sunday 20 January 2013, a 17-year-old was waiting at a bus stop on Copster Hill Road at 3.30pm when she noticed someone walking towards her.  He stepped behind her and assaulted her before laughing and running off.

The offender is described as being in his mid to late teens, Asian, of skinny build and had a large nose.

Detective Constable Andrew Day from Oldham CID said: “I would ask members of the public to take a good look at the efit image.  Do you know who this is or have you seen him in the area?  If you have, we are keen to hear from you.

“Due to the similarities in each incident, we believe the same person is responsible for the assaults and I would urge members of the public to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings, particularly women who are walking on their own.”
