Elderly woman is raped in assault

A 90-year-old woman was dragged off the street and raped in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, as she walked to a local shop.

The victim felt a hand go over her mouth and she was hauled backwards in Spotland Road at about 6.45am yesterday, police said. An appeal has been launched to help find the attacker, but the only description police have is that he is white.
