Woman knees sex attacker in groin in Manchester park

A 21-year-old woman was dragged into a park by three men who tried to sexually assault her, police have said.

The woman kneed one of the men in the groin during the incident which took place in Platt Fields Park in Manchester at 03:45 GMT on Saturday.

One of the men punched her on the side of the head before all three fled.

Det Sgt Gareth Davies, of Greater Manchester Police, said it was a "terrifying experience" for the woman.

He added: "Thankfully she did not suffer any serious injuries and managed to fight back and luckily was able to get away."
