A MANHUNT has been launched after a teenage girl was subjected to a terrifying daylight sexual attack.
The sex beast targeted the 14-year-old girl as she walked to school along Platt Lane, Hindley, at about 11am on December 1.
He chillingly walked over to the girl and told her to follow him.
The youngster was so scared of what he might do if she did not do what he asked, that she followed him on to a field at the end of the road, which is a dead end.
It was there, just yards from a children’s play area, that she was forced to endure the terrifying ordeal, during which she was sexually assaulted over her clothes for several minutes.
He then left quickly, and the schoolgirl, who lives locally, rushed home and reported what had happened. Police are urging parents to be vigilant and keep their children safe until the brazen attacker, who is still at large, is caught.
They have launched an appeal for help in finding the sex fiend, who is described as white, in his late 20s to early 30s, about 6ft tall, of a thin build and with short black hair.
