Police appeal for help over historic sex attacks
DETECTIVES investigating historic sexual offences in Macclesfield are appealing for information.
Officers want to trace people who were in the town in the summer of 1975 or 1976 and can help with their enquiries.
It comes after three incidents of sexual assault were reported to police recently by the victim, who was a young boy at the time.
One took place inside a disused building on Roe Street, which later became the Salvation Army building, and another in a house on Union Street.
The offender is described as a white man with dark hair, of stocky build in his 30s or 40s.
He was wearing dark blue overalls.
Police Constable Stephanie Montague said: “We are asking people to cast their minds back to the mid-1970s.
“It’s difficult asking people to recall things from such a long time ago but any information is useful when piecing together a case.
“The victim believes the incidents took place sometime in 1975 or 1976 but cannot recall the exact date.
“Specially trained officers will provide support throughout the investigation.”
Call Cheshire Police on 101 quoting crime number CC14356172 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
