Teenage girl attacked on paper round in Bolton

A 14-year-old girl has been sexually attacked on her paper round in Greater Manchester.

The teenager was on Claughton Avenue in Breightmet, Bolton, at about 0830 GMT on Monday when a man approached her.

He assaulted her and walked off before she managed to run home and raise the alarm. She was left shocked but unhurt.

Police are looking for a white man in his late 20s to early 30s who was wearing a black hat with an Armani logo and a black waterproof jacket.

He was also wearing jeans and spoke with a local accent.

Anyone with information is being urged to contact police.

Det Con Randy Lyle said: "I want to reassure this girl and her family that we are working hard to find who is responsible for this and specially-trained officers are supporting the victim, who is understandably distressed.

"I'd like to appeal to anyone who may be able to help us. I'd ask you to try and remember if you saw a man of that description in that area on Monday morning.

"You may have a vital piece of information for us."
