A woman has been put through a really excruciating experience after a stranger forced her into her own house to harass her s*xually.

An elderly woman has been raped after an intruder forced his way into her home.

According to Metro UK, Police were called to the address near Fog Lane Park in Withington, Manchester, following reports of a s*xual assault on May 20.

The woman, who is in her 60s, heard a knock on the door at around 8pm, and when she opened it a man was stood there who she did not know.

He barged in and pushed her back into the house, before raping her and fleeing at around 9pm.

The suspect is described as black, 5ft 10in, broad build, aged in his 40s and with short, curly black hair and a smooth complexion.

He was also said to have dark pigmentation near his side burns and a distorted knuckle on the fourth finger of his right hand, which pushes the knuckle towards his little finger.

He was wearing a black or dark top with yellow lines on left shoulder down to the chest, tight-fitted blue jeans and a thin silver bracelet on left hand.

It is thought that the offender regularly visits Parrs Wood Road near the Fog Lane junction.

Detective Chief Inspector Chris Mossop, of GMP’s City of Manchester division, said: ‘This is a shocking attack and I want to commend the victim for her bravery in coming forward to police so that we can deliver justice.

‘We are now offering her specialist support at this difficult time, which will always be there for those who report sexual offences.

‘Although stranger attacks like this are rare and we are not aware of any similar incidents in the area, we are taking this extremely seriously.
