Manchester police have released images of potential suspects after a man was raped and robbed during a night out in the Gay Village.

The 28-year-old victim reportedly met two men in Canal Street on April 3 when he was raped and robbed while walking towards Back Piccadilly, Manchester Evening News.

Now, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) have released three images of men they want to speak with in connection to the attack.

Police believe the men travelled on a National Express service to London via Birmingham.

Detective Constable Louise Kelly said: “Since the attack, we’ve been following numerous lines of inquiry, but unfortunately we have yet to find the men responsible.

“We have now released images of three men we want to speak to. Anyone who recognises these men should get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
