Woman assaulted in city centre bar

A woman’s Bank Holiday weekend was ruined when she was sexually assaulted in the toilets at a bar in Manchester city centre.

At 5.50pm on Sunday 24 May, the 35 year-old victim went to the toilet while inside Brewdog Bar on Peter Street.  She was followed by a man before he assaulted her and left.

The police have now launched an investigation and released still images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

Detective Sergeant Shagufta Khan said, “Specialist officers have been speaking to the victim as she has understandably been left shaken by what happened.  She was out enjoying drinks with her friends for the Bank Holiday weekend before she was attacked.
