A 15-YEAR-OLD girl was raped in a park by a man who pretended to need to use her phone in Greater Manchester.
The teen girl was in Chadderton Hall Park in Oldham when the man approached her on Sunday night.

He then walked along a path towards the river with her phone – with the young girl following him.
But horrifically, the man then raped the teen.
Greater Manchester Police are now investigating the sickening attack.
Detective Sergeant Alex Wilkinson of GMP’s Oldham District said: “This was a shocking attack on a young girl and our thoughts are with her while she continues to be supported by specialist officers.
“I’d like to reassure the local community that we have a team of detectives working on this and there will be an increased police presence in the area over the coming days.
“We have a very good description of the man involved and I’d implore anyone who recognises this description to contact police immediately.
“Were you in the area or did you see anything that looked out of place? Perhaps you were driving in the area around the time and may have captured something on you dash-cam.
“Even the smallest detail may help us pursue lines of enquiry and find the man responsible for this appalling attack.”
