A 13-YEAR-old schoolgirl has been “seriously” sexually assaulted in an alleyway after she was approached by a stranger.
She was reportedly walking down the alleyway when a man thought to be aged between 17 and 18 approached her.
The suspect is described as a tanned white man about 5ft 10 with short brown hair.
He was wearing black Nike Tech tracksuit and a balaclava round his neck which he pulled up over his face.
Cops are now appealing for anyone with information to help them catch the alleged attacker.
DI Georgie Jones said: “I understand this will cause a lot of concern in the community.
“I want to reassure residents that we are doing everything we can to identify the person responsible.
“We also have extra officers on patrol in the area to address any concerns and are visiting the local schools to provide reassurance and advice.
“Officers are carrying out house to house enquiries and checking CCTV and doorbell cameras to identify the suspect, and the victim and her family are being supported by specialist officers.
“I would urge anyone who has information and has not yet spoken to police to contact us.”
Anyone with information should contact Cheshire Police on 101 quoting IML 1649607.
