Girl, 17, walking dog in park pushed to ground by men and raped in horror attack

Police are on the hunt for two suspects after a girl was pushed to the ground and raped as she walked her dog in a park.

The horrifying incident took place at Boggart Hole Clough in Blackley, Manchester on 22 August at around 9:30pm as the girl walked alone with her pet, officers said.

The victim left her home at around 7pm and was walking her dog from the duck pond towards an exit when she was ambushed by two men, police said.

One of the men took the dog from her, while the other pushed her to the ground and raped her, the Manchester Evening News reported.

Following the attack, the girl was able to take her dog back and run from the scene.

She alerted two other women in the park, who contacted police.

Descriptions of the two suspected attackers were released, but a spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police confirmed today, September 1, that no arrests had been made yet in relation to the incident.

An investigation remains ongoing at this stage, they said.

The two men were described as; a black male with braided hair, around 5ft 8" aged between 20 and 30 with an African accent, wearing a dark coloured puffer jacket with royal blue sleeves, dark jeans with a belt and dark trainers with bubbles in the sole.

A bald white male, aged between 20 and 30, with a short beard and a Manchester accent, wearing a white long sleeved t-shirt with a v-neck, dark coloured jeans with white trainers.

Anyone who has any information about the attack is urged to come forward.

Detective Inspector Louise Edwards of GMP's City of Manchester division, said: "We understand the distress that incidents such as this can cause for the community, and I want to reassure the public that we have launched a full investigation to establish the full circumstances of what happened, and ensure the people responsible for this horrendous act are identified."
