The 17-year-old victim was approached by two men in Boggart Hole Clough in Blackley, Manchester, before being pushed to the ground and assaulted. Officers were called to the park and nature reserve at around 9.30pm.

The teenager left her home at around 7pm and had walked her dog past a duck pond when she was approached by the sex fiends.

Police said one of the men took the dog from her, while the other pushed her to the ground and raped her, reports Manchester Evening News.

After the ordeal, the girl was able to take her dog back and run from the scene.

She alerted two other women in the park, who contacted Greater Manchester Police.

The two men are described as; a black male with braided hair, around 5ft 8″ aged between 20 and 30 with an African accent, wearing a dark coloured puffer jacket with royal blue sleeves, dark jeans with a belt and dark trainers with bubbles in the sole.

A bald white male, aged between 20 and 30, with a short beard and a Manchester accent, wearing a white long sleeved t-shirt with a v-neck, dark coloured jeans with white trainers.
