An image of a man officers would “like to identify” has now been released.

As it called on the Greater Manchester Police (GMP) explained that at around 8:30pm on Wednesday 15 June 2022, a woman was “approached from behind by a man who reportedly sexually assaulted her” while attending a Harry Styles gig at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground.

The force says it has already utilised “several lines of enquiry” since receiving the initial reports of the assault and putting out its first appeal, but is now hoping to “seek fresh information”.

GMP says it has released the new image of the man they would like to identify as they believe he could “assist with their investigation”.


Detective Constable Grace O’Rourke, of GMP’s Trafford division, said the new appeal has been launched to “ensure we get justice for the victim”, and assured that the force “always” looks to “take a robust approach to these kinds of reports”.

She added: “We will continue to investigate and we are asking anyone with any information to please get in touch with us.”


Anyone with any information or mobile phone footage from the area at the time of the alleged incident is asked to contact GMP by calling 0161 856 7756 and quoting crime reference number CRI/06MM/0009904/22, or reporting online via
