CCTV security images of a car have been released by Greater Manchester Police as part of an investigation into the sexual assault of a woman in Wigan. On October 14th at around 04:10 BST, the 29-year-old victim was waiting in the town centre when what she thought was a taxi picked her up. The driver took the woman to her destination and when she offered to pay, he refused her cash and sexually assaulted her, so the woman screamed and left the vehicle. Police describe the perpetrator as a white male in his 50s who had a slight moustache, dark hair and a local accent. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a t-shirt. "The victim was terrified throughout the ordeal - she managed to fend him off and raise the alarm by screaming," Detective Constable Kevin Byrne said. He urged people who recognise the car in the CCTV systems' image or the description of the offender to get in touch with the police force immediately.
