Police have launched a manhunt after a woman was raped just after visiting her parents’ graves.
The young woman was making her way from a nearby cemetery in Gorton and was listening to music through headphones.
As she made her way through Debdale Park, she was approached by a man and attacked.
Her attacker is described as having greasy hair, scarred skin, yellow teeth and bushy eyebrows which met in the middle.
He was described as Asian, in his late 20s or early 30s, around 6 feet tall with dark eyes and with a full goatee type beard.
The man was wearing black tracksuit bottoms, a large black coat, similar to a bubble coat, and dark boots.
The attack happened at around 7.30pm on Saturday March 5. Police have now issued an appeal for information.
Det Insp Nicola Thomlinson, from GMP’s Serious Sexual Offences Unit, urged any witnesses to come forward.
She said: “This was an awful attack on a young woman as she made her way home after visiting her parent’s grave in a nearby cemetery.
“We are appealing for anyone who may have seen a man matching this description or have any information about what happened to contact police.
“Any small piece of information could be vital in this investigation. Likewise, if anyone in the community is concerned, please call us.
“We are committed to bringing the offender to justice and have launched a full investigation.
“These offences are very rare and we have had extra officers patrolling the area over the past week and in the coming days, especially around the time this offence occurred to reassure and safeguard the community.”
