Boy raped walking dog in Ashton-under-Lyne

A 14-year-old boy was raped as he was walking his dog in a park in Greater Manchester, police have said.

The teenager was attacked in the Park Bridge area of Ashton-under-Lyne, close to the heritage centre and tea rooms on the afternoon of 2 November last year.

He told police he let his dog off the lead and felt someone put their hand over his mouth before he was attacked.

The offender then walked off. He is described as white, aged between 30 and 40 and about 5ft 8in (1.7m) tall.

He had small legs and a big torso, short black spiked hair on the top with blonde short back and sides.

Det Insp Richard Ennis, said the boy had been left "traumatised" by the "terrifying attack" and appealed for any witnesses to get in touch.
