RAPE: Man attacked on busy road
A young man was threatened, robbed and then raped in Manchester city centre in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The 21-year-old victim was walking home along Spear Street near Piccadilly at around 3am when a man threatened him with a bottle, demanding his mobile phone and cash, which the victim handed over.
The man was then raped by the offender in the busy area, leading police to urge any potential witnesses to come forward.
Detective Inspector Damian Simpson said: "This young man has been left devastated by this attack.

"The city was very busy at this time with revellers trying to get home, so I would urge anyone who may have seen this incident, or who may have seen anything suspicious to call us.

"We have launched a thorough investigation into this incident and have made it a priority to find the man responsible for this attack.”
The attacker is described as white, 5ft7in tall, in his mid-30s and had a shaved head.
He was wearing a dark coat, dark jeans and dirty white trainers and spoke with a local accent.
Anyone who has been a victim of rape or sexual assault can contact Greater Manchester Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency. GMP has specially trained officers in place to provide a first class response to victims and help support them through the criminal justice process.
