A 19-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by a taxi driver after he dropped her off at a house in Sale.

The teenager was picked up outside Tiger Tiger in Manchester city centre in the early hours of 26 July.

The driver took her to a house on Alexandra Road and started talking to her on the street before sexually assaulting her.

She ran off and the offender drove away. Police have released an image of the man they want to trace.

He is described as Asian, about 5ft 8in (1.7m) tall and with dark hair and stubble.

Pc Kenneth McMahon said: "The victim thought and rightly expected that the driver was going to help her get home safely, instead he took advantage of her and sexually assaulted her.

"She is understandably upset by what has happened and I want anyone who recognises the driver from this image to get in touch."
