Police have released an e-fit of a van driver suspected of trying to abduct a 17-year-old girl.
The teenager was walking on Lingard Way in Bredbury at around 3.30am on Monday when the man got out of a silver Ford Transit and grabbed the girl.
She managed to struggle free and run away before calling for help.
The attacker was described as Asian, around 40-year-old, 5ft 8in tall with a big black long beard, black hair, balding on top and was wearing a black jacket and black trousers.
A second man who was white, bald, around 30-years-old and clean shaven stayed in the van throughout the incident.
Detective Inspector Cheryl Hughes, based at Hazel Grove Police Station, said it was not yet known whether there was a sexual motive behind the attack.
She said: “This was obviously a very distressing incident for the victim and we have reassured her that we have launched an investigation to catch the culprit.
“I must stress that this kind of incident is genuinely rare, but it is understandable that the community are concerned.
“At this stage however we cannot say what the males’ motives were, but it is paramount that we find them and get their accounts.
“When this type of thing happens there is always rumour, particularly on social media – so I want to reassure people that this is the only report of this nature that we are currently dealing with in this area.”
