Police appeal for information after woman was raped in Oldham

Detectives are appealing for the public’s help after a woman was raped in Oldham. 

Shortly before 2.35am on Friday 5 April 2019, police were called to Huddersfield Road in Oldham to reports that a woman had been raped.

The offender is described as a dark skinned Asian male, with a black moustache and aged 22-25. He had a small build with a slender physique and is described as being taller than 5ft 3 inches tall.

At the time of the incident it is believed he was wearing a coat.

The woman in her 30s is being supported by a specialist team of officers.

No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.

Detective Constable Paul Brereton, of GMP’s Oldham district, said: “This is a horrendous offence – and one which we are taking extremely seriously.

“My thoughts remain with the woman as she begins to recover – both physically and mentally – from this horrific ordeal.

“We have a dedicated team of officers working hard to piece together exactly what has happened and at this stage also believe the victim’s car key was taken.

“I would appeal to local members of the community to jog their memories back. Were you around the area at the time of this incident? Did you see anybody acting suspicious?

“If so, please come forward and speak with officers at the earliest opportunity.”

Anybody with information should contact police on 0161 856 8927, quoting incident number 136 of 05/05/19 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
