CCTV images released after a woman was assaulted and kidnapped









Police have released CCTV images after a woman was assaulted and kidnapped in Leigh.

On Monday 3 July 2017, police were called after a 31-year-old woman was walking onto Hilden Street at around 6pm. A white car suddenly blocked her path and two men appeared, grabbing her arms and legs.

During the struggle, the men pushed the woman to the floor and punched and kicked her. They then forced her into the back of the car and covered her head.

The offenders drove right out of Hilden Street onto King Street and drove towards the Spinning Jenny pub.  They then turned left and U-turned on Spinning Jenny Way. It is believed the vehicle then possibly turned right onto Cook Street.

The victim was driven around for some time before she was eventually released at the junction of Gordon Street and Chadwick Street at around 7.15pm.

She ran from her kidnappers, to Hilden Street where police were in attendance after receiving a report from a member of the public.

Detective Constable Ian Deary, from GMP’s Leigh CID, said: “This was a terrifying attack on a woman at rush hour which we believe was targeted.
