Following an investigation, Greater Manchester Police have fully cleared a man accused of sexual assault by two teenage girls. The girls will be made to write letters of apology to the man, who has not been named.
From GMP’s press release:
Greater Manchester Police issued an image of a man on a bike who had reportedly attempted to sexually assault a 13-year-old girl who was walking with her 12-year-old friend along a dirt track leading from Lilford Park towards Green Lane in Leigh at around 6.30pm on Saturday 2 April. However, following calls from members of the public and an interview with the man in question –who presented himself at a police station in an attempt to clear his name- the girls admitted that they had lied about the attack.
