Detectives are appealing for information after two elderly women were sexually assaulted in a care home in Gorton, Manchester.
The Police said the attacker was described as a black male wearing a hoody and shorts at the time of the attack.
He is also described as a well-spoken man with a strong body odour.
No arrest is made yet as the investigation continues.
How the attacker entered the premises is still unknown, but it is believed that he entered the care home via Taylor Street at around 3.20am.
In a statement, Detective Inspector Claire Moss said “This incident is incredibly distressing for the victims, their loved ones and staff at the care home. Specialist services are doing everything they can to support those affected.
“Extensive enquiries are ongoing to establish exactly who this man is and how he entered the care home. I appeal to anyone with information which might assist us with this to contact us as soon as possible.”
Police arrived at the care home at about 3.35am on Monday morning.
In an appeal, Inspector Moss continued “We are obviously keen to hear from anyone who saw something suspicious on Monday but we would also like to hear from anyone who lives nearby who has seen something suspicious in recent weeks.
“I understand that this incident may cause concern for residents, their loved ones and people who live in the surrounding area but I would like to reassure them that security measures at the care home have been appropriately tightened.
“That being said, I would ask people to be vigilant and report anything suspicious or concerning to police without hesitation.”©Standard Gazette, 2021.
