A TAXI driver from Bury is being tracked by police in connection with a report of sexual assault.

Atif Ratiq, aged 32, is wanted by police in connection with a report of kidnap, with intent to commit a sexual offence.

Police say the incident took place in the Bury area in September last year, and are appealing for anyone with information about his whereabouts to come forward.

Officers have not been able to find Ratiq, and say he may have travelled to Pakistan, but have not ruled out the possibility that he may still be living in Bury.

Det Con Chris Maddocks, from Greater Manchester Police’s Serious Sexual Offences Unit, said: "Rafiq worked as a taxi driver in the Bury area and someone will know him or will have seen him or continue to be in contact with him.

“I would appeal for those individuals with knowledge of him to come forward, either by calling me directly or anonymously to Crimestoppers as it is absolutely imperative that we find him.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
