Authorities in Greater Manchester are urgently appealing to the public for help to solve the despicable crime of gang rape committed against a woman in an early morning attack on September 9. Without any concern for public safety, Police are refusing to tell the public what race the attackers were.
Three men surrounded the woman and raped her just yards from a block of flats on Penny Lane in Stockport, Greater Manchester. Police say the woman was approached by three men described only as wearing dark clothing between 6:10 a.m. and 6:45 a.m. on a Saturday, September 9.
Detectives are now investigating the case, but are working with very limited information. The officers are then turning to the public and appealing for any information that might shed more light into the incident. They are also asking possible witnesses who happen to pass by the area last week at about the time the crime was committed to come forward as they may be key in determining the identities of the suspects
Detective Inspector Cheryl Hughes of Greater Manchester Police’s Stockport borough said: “This was a terrifying attack on a woman in the early hours of the morning. No one should feel unsafe or to be taken advantage of in this way. “
Hughes emphasized their appeal to the public: “I am also appealing for anyone who assisted the victim to contact the police as you may hold important information.”

Anyone with any information is requested to call immediately the Greater Manchester Police on 101, and give the incident number 460 of 09/09/17, or Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
The suspects remain a danger to society, and have the potential to repeat their crime to another poor victim, making their arrest a public concern.
