Man robbed and raped in Manchester city centre
A 21-year-old man has been raped and robbed in Manchester city centre, police say.
The attack happened on Spear Street near London Road, at about 03:00 GMT on Saturday.
Greater Manchester Police said the man was walking home when he was threatened by another man with a bottle who asked for his mobile phone and cash.
He was then raped by the attacker, who was white, 5ft 7in (1.7m) tall, in his mid 30s and with a shaved head.
He was wearing a dark coat, dark jeans and dirty white trainers and spoke with a local accent, police said.
Det Insp Damian Simpson said: "This young man has been left devastated by this attack.
"The city was very busy at this time with revellers trying to get home so I would urge anyone who may have seen this incident, or who may have seen anything suspicious to call us."
