Woman sexually assaulted by man who sneaked into her flat by 'tailgating' her as police hunt for man in CCTV | The Sun

A WOMAN was followed into her flat and assaulted in a horror sex attack.

Police were scrambled to the home in Manchester city centre after receiving a report the victim had been "tailgated" into her block.

The suspect then pushed through her front door and sexually assaulted her.

Officers believe the attack at 10am yesterday is linked to a second ordeal earlier this week.

In that incident, police received a report of "suspicious" circumstances" on a road in the south of the city centre.

They have now released a CCTV image of a man they wish to speak to following the horror.
