Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

CCTV im­ages of two men wanted for ques­tion­ing af­ter a 14-year-old boy was raped in a depart­ment store toi­let have been is­sued by po­lice.

The boy was tar­geted at around 5.45pm on Satur­day June 2.

He was in Manch­ester’s Arn­dale Cen­tre, near the en­trance of Aldi and Sub­way stores, when he went to the toi­lets. While there he was ap­proached by two men, one Asian, one white.

One said to him: “Come with us, do what we say and if you try to run we’ll get you.”

The teenager was grabbed by the arm, led out of the cen­tre and taken to nearby Deben­hams.

He was then taken by the lift up­stairs and marched into a toi­let where he was raped by the Asian man.

The trau­ma­tised vic­tim con­tacted the po­lice and has been sup­ported by a team of spe­cially trained of­fi­cers.

Those of­fi­cers have spent the past two months work­ing with the vic­tim to build up a pic­ture of what hap­pened and have been await­ing foren­sic re­sults be­fore is­su­ing an ap­peal.

Greater Manch­ester Po­lice have now is­sued im­mages of two men who wanted in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent.
