Woman raped near Sale West Community Centre

A woman has been raped behind a community centre in Greater Manchester.

The 21-year-old was walking through the park at the back of Sale West Community Centre at about 17:30 BST on Sunday when she was grabbed from behind.

The attacker threatened her with a weapon before raping her. The woman also suffered facial and other injuries and had cash stolen.

The man was described as white, in his early 20s, with brown eyes and bushy eyebrows, police said.

He was wearing a dark coloured top with a zip and tracksuit trousers with white stripes. He was also believed to be wearing black gloves.

Det Con Aiden Kennedy, of Greater Manchester Police, said: "This was a nasty attack on a lone woman during the day.

"However, I'd like to reassure people we're doing all we can to find who is responsible, but we need the public's help, so if anyone has any information, they must call us."
