POLICE have named a man they are hunting in connection with a violent attack on a woman in Higher Ince.

Daniel Rigby, 24, has known links to Hindley, Platt Bridge, Ince and Wigan town centre and officers have reiterated their desire to speak to him.

Rigby is sought by detectives investigating the assault, which took place in the early hours of Saturday July 13.

Police say a man had an argument with the 24-year-old woman on West Street just before 3am before he punched her. The woman ran away in fear and broke her ankle after scaling a fence.

DC David Bunce said: “We have launched a number of inquiries to trace Rigby but we still have not had that vital piece of information to help find him.

“It is vital that we speak to Rigby in connection with a violent attack on a young woman.”

People with information are asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
