Police investigating a stranger rape in Rochdale have released an E-Fit of the offender.
Since the attack the victim has been supported by specially trained officers and detectives have been carrying out a number of inquiries.
The victim has now managed to give a detailed description of the offender and officers have today released an E-Fit.

A man has been jailed after officers found two guns and ammunition in the glove compartment of his car.
A second man is also serving a jail term after forensic specialists found his DNA on the same guns following a lab examination.
Yaser Kelleher, 26, of Hatch Lane, Harmondsworth, Middlesex was jailed for eight years for possession of firearm. He also received a further three months for assault by beating to run concurrently.
Mohamed Amine Darik, 22, of Beames Road, NW10 was jailed for five years for possession of a firearm. He pleaded not guilty alongside Kelleher in September and the jury failed to reach a verdict. Following a retrial at Isleworth Crown court on Wednesday, 15 October the jury took just over one hour to convict him of possession of a handgun.
The men were both sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on Thursday, 16 October.
The court heard how on Tuesday, 4 March at approximately 23:30hrs officers were called to an address in Hatch Lane, West Drayton, Middlesex to report an assault.
Kelleher initially gave a false name, however following police checks his true identity was established and he was arrested for the assault. A search of his car was carried out where officers found two handguns and ammunition in the glove compartment.
Both of the handguns were manufactured as replicas but subsequently converted to fire live ammunition. The ammunition recovered was suitable for use in one of the handguns. Kelleher was further arrested for possession of firearms.
Forensic examination of the handguns revealed Darik’s DNA. On Friday, 2 May, Darik was arrested at his home address. He denied the offence, but was later charged with possession of a firearm.
Detective Sergeant Beverley Kofi, from Hillingdon CID said: ““Darik truly believed he was innocent and did not have any involvement with the handguns. What he failed to understand is that the police will use every tool we have to catch those involved in gun crime.
“I hope that these sentences serve as another reminder to anybody involved in the possession, supply and use of firearms; that officers will continue to pursue and place them before the courts. These are serious offences and will result in lengthy custodial sentences.”
Anyone with information about those involved in the use or possession of firearms can call police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
SIX members of a gang involved in heroin, crack cocaine and cocaine with a street value of more than £5.5 million have been jailed for a total of more than 60 years for conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
A flat in Lister Court, Cunliffe Road, Manningham, was raided by police on February 12 last year where a haul of 29.8 kilograms of heroin, at varying levels of purity, was found, alongside 78 grams of cocaine and £116,000 of crack cocaine.
Mohammed Dawood Aslam, 35, of Knightsbridge Walk, Holme Wood, described as the "directing hand in this conspiracy" was jailed for 17 years at Bradford Crown Court yesterday.
Mohammed Azam Yaqoob, 45, of North Road, Ravensthorpe, Dewsbury, and Hamayan Nawaz, 25, of Carrington Street, Bradford Moor, were each jailed for nine years and four months.
Jamal Mahroof, 23, of Karam Close,Barkerend, Bradford, was jailed for nine years.
Samir Ali, 23, of Daleside Avenue, Pudsey, Leeds, was sentenced to seven years and three months.
Mohammed Khan, 41, of Glendevon Place, Whitefield, Manchester was sentenced to eight years and seven months.
All six defendants who were sentenced yesterday had previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply class A drugs, apart from Mahroof who was convicted after a trial at Bradford Crown Court in June this year.
Mohammed Masood Aslam, 26, of Ederoyd Mount,Stanningley, had his sentencing adjourned at Bradford Crown Court until November 7, as he is due to stand trial for a separate case of possession of class A drugs with intent to supply in Manchester next month.
He was remanded in custody until that date.
The eight defendant in this case, Naveed Ahmed, 31, of Byron Street, Barkerend, who was found guilty by the jury in June this year, did not appear in court for yesterday's verdict of the other six defendants. Instead, he is due to be sentenced at Bradford Crown Court this Tuesday.
Police used camera surveillance at the flat rented by Nawaz and also tracked the gang using mobile phone activity, which began on January 29 last year.
The gang were traced around a host of locations including Bradford, Harrogate, Barnsley and Manchester.
They also uncovered visits by the gang members to the Lister Road flat on several occasions and recorded shopping trips to buy food mixers and a large blue plastic container.
The operation continued until around 11pm on February 12 last year when Aslam, Ahmed, Nawaz and Ali were arrested by officers at the flat.
Earlier that night, two members of the group, Ali and Nawaz, had driven from Bradford to Manchester to pick up five kilograms of "high purity" heroin to add to their operation.
They picked this consignment up from Khan, who was described as the "courier" in the operation.
Aside from the drugs, the police raid on the flat uncovered a list of drug dealers.
The other members of the group were arrested at later dates.
Jailing the gang, Judge Peter Benson said: "In my view, this was the most substantial quantity of drugs to unleash on the streets of West Yorkshire, including a very, very substantial amount of heroin.
"Most of the defendants were arrested at the same time as the flat was raided."
An order was also made for the destruction of all drugs and equipment seized in the operation.
A man has today, been sentenced to eight years imprisonment after raping a woman in Ipswich.
Ali Shaboot, aged 40 from Freehold Road, Ipswich appeared at Norwich Crown Court on trial charged with two counts of rape relating to an incident in Ipswich at around 2.25am on Sunday 20 April and was found guilty of both offences on Wednesday 15 October.
A woman had reported to police that after spending an evening out in town she had been approached by a man in Dogs Head Street who offered her a cigarette and spoke to her before she started to make her way home.
Shaboot followed the woman, pushed her against a wall and attempted to kiss her. The woman tried to push him off but he grabbed her by the arm and pulled her into an alleyway off a car park in Lower Brook Street.
The woman was raped twice by Shaboot before he left the scene.
The victim sought help from a person nearby who in turn alerted the incident to Town Pastors who had been working in the area.
Police attended and cordoned an area off in Lower Brook Street in order for Crime Scene Investigators to gather forensic material and officers to carry out an investigation.
As part of their enquiries police viewed CCTV footage from the surrounding area and were able to identify an image of a man matching the victim’s description who had been in the area at the time.
Further enquiries led police to arrest and later charge Ali Shaboot.
At Norwich Crown Court today, Friday 17 October Shaboot was sentenced to two eight year jail terms to run concurrently.
Detective Constable Andy Dibbs who investigated the case said: “Ali Shaboot preyed on the vulnerability of a young woman who was on her own after a night out with friends. He overpowered her with his strength and abused her when she wasn’t in a position to fight him off.
“Reliving an experience such as this is never easy for a victim of sexual assault and she has shown great strength to be able to give her account of what happened that night.
“Shaboot denied any wrong doing and the jury found that he was guilty. I hope the verdict at court today will help the victim to come to terms with what she has been through and that with support can further her recovery from this horrendous ordeal.”
Detective Sergeant Darren Bruce who overseas rape and serious sexual assault investigations said: “Suffolk Police take all allegations of rape seriously and will carry out full and thorough investigations to ensure those responsible are brought to justice. We, together with our partners will also ensure that victims who come forward will receive the necessary help and support they need.”
A SHOCKING new child sex exploitation scandal has emerged in Britain’s second largest city.
Dozens of girls, some as young as 11, have fallen victim to predatory gangs.
Three out of four of the men who groom youngsters for sex in Birmingham are Asian.
Yet their victims are 82 per cent white, say confidential police statistics leaked this week.
A Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board study in September 2013, never released to the media, found 111 youngsters were at risk of sexual exploitation in the city, some as young as 11 and almost half under 15.
The failure to prosecute known offenders was “startling” and “unacceptable” it added.
West Midlands Police said last month that it was currently dealing with 57 live child sexual exploitation cases and 130 suspected cases.
Assistant Chief Constable Carl Foulkes said yesterday: “Child sexual exploitation remains at the top of our agenda. This issue is very much a hidden crime.”
Crime gang supplied cocaine and £300-an-hour prostitutes to clients in the West End
A shamed former West Midlands Police officer has been jailed for his part in a £1 million-plus sex and drugs racket.
Osman Iqbal played a “leading role” in an organised crime group which controlled £300-an-hour call girls working in London’s West End.
The 36-year-old and three cousins took charge of two “high class” brothels where cocaine was supplied to customers, a judge said.
Iqbal, whose address cannot be revealed, was also involved in laundering dirty money from the ventures, which made a total far in excess of £1 million.
He was jailed for seven years and two months – one of six men and women sent to prison at Warwick Crown Court.
Passing sentence, Judge Sylvia de Bertodano told Iqbal: “It is very sad to see a man like you in this position.
“You are not only a man of previous good character, you were a police officer who played a significant role in the community and your record as an officer was an extremely good one.
“You have lost a great deal as a result of this offending.”
Iqbal and his cousins, Birmingham brothers Talib, Atif and Asri Hussain, all admitted conspiring to act or assist in the management of a brothel.
The quartet also pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine with intent to supply it at the two brothels they ran.
And Iqbal, Talib and Atif Hussain admitted being involved in the conspiracy to launder the proceeds.
Talib, 34, of Douglas Avenue, Hodge Hill, was said to have been in charge of the operation.
He was jailed for eight years and four months.
Atif, 27, of Silver Birch Close, Saltley, was jailed for four years and two months.
Asri, 25, of the same address, was jailed for three years – consecutive to a ten-year sentence he received last month for conspiracy to commit robberies.
Iqbal’s sister Raheela Ali, 44, and her husband Nassar Ali, 50, both of Buxton Road, Ilford, Essex, were also sent to prison.
Raheela was jailed for a year after earlier being found guilty of conspiring to assist in the management of brothels and to launder the proceeds.
Her husband, who changed his pleas to guilty part-way through the trial, received 21 months.
Prostitute Jennifer Williams, 31, of Furlong Lane, Cradley Heath, admitted being involved in the brothel and cocaine conspiracies and will be sentenced at a later date.
The court heard clients were found by taxi drivers outside West End nightclubs.
Some clocked up bills running into thousands of pounds.
Clients were also supplied with cocaine at £100 a gram.
Jailing the six, Judge Sylvia de Bertodano told them: “The purpose of the business was to make large sums of money running high-class brothels in London’s West End.
“It was an added attraction that customers could purchase not only sex, but also class A drugs.”
West Midlands Police said Iqbal was sacked in July.
