Police issue e-fit image after boy is sexually assaulted in woodland

Police have issued an image of a man they’d like to speak to after a boy was the victim of a serious sexual assault in woodland. The incident was in Stockport earlier this month.

GMP only received a report of the incident on Monday this week. A teenage boy was attacked in woods near the town centre on Sunday May 8 2022 between 5pm and 7pm.

The suspect is described as a white male aged in his 40s or 50s, about 6ft 4 inches tall, skinny with wrinkly skin and long, unkempt fingernails. He had a long nose and thinning, brown hair, and was wearing black-rimmed glasses; he also had stubble with a few grey hairs.

At the time of the incident, he was wearing a smart polo shirt with a red logo in the top corner, dark blue jeans and possibly brown or muddy shoes.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Moyles, of GMP’s Stockport division, said: “This is an horrific assault that has left the young victim traumatised, and he is being supported by specialist officers and services. Enquiries are ongoing to establish exactly where the attack took place.

“I can reassure the community that, although we haven’t received further reports of this nature in the time preceding or following this incident, we have increased patrols across the district.”
