October 16, 2014, 7:07 pm

Police investigating a stranger rape in Rochdale have released an E-Fit of the offender.

Shortly after 4.30am on Saturday, 11 October 2014, police were called after a 24 year old woman was raped in an alleyway in the Bamford area of Rochdale.

Since the attack the victim has been supported by specially trained officers and detectives have been carrying out a number of inquiries.

The victim has now managed to give a detailed description of the offender and officers have today released an E-Fit.

Detective Inspector James Faulkner, based at Rochdale, said: “The victim has been through a terrible ordeal but I can reassure both her and the community that we are determined to catch the man responsible.

“The victim has managed to provide enough details for us to put together an E-Fit so I would now like people to have a look and tell us if they recognise the man.

“I would ask anyone who witnessed the attack to please get in touch. Were you driving or walking near to where the incident took place and see anything suspicious? We believe a man may have been walking near to where the incident took place and I would appeal for him to come forward to let us know if he saw anything.”
