A woman found walking down the street by a bystander reportedly escaped a “sex slave” house, the Manchester Evening News reports.
According to police, a bystander contacted police after spotting a woman who appeared to be in her 20s walking along off South Langworthy Road in Salford on May 2. Authorities said she likely ended up in Salford after escaping a home where she was held as a sex slave. Police believe someone gave her a ride from the Greater Manchester area.
When spotted, the woman was wearing a dark-colored dress and a blue denim jacket. She has brown hair that she wore in a ponytail. Authorities are now trying to locate the woman.
“We are appealing to anyone with information, or who recalls helping or seeing this woman in the early morning of Saturday 2 May, or the days preceding, to contact police,” Detective sergeant Gareth Humphreys of the Great Manchester Polic Salford district said. “This woman has endured a terrifying experience and our specialist officers are supporting her through this distressing time.”
“We’d particularly like to appeal to the driver of the lorry who assisted the woman in travelling to Salford. I’d like to stress that the lorry driver is not in any trouble and we only want to speak to them to help us piece together the woman’s movements following her escape.”
Humphreys said limited information is available at this time. Anyone in the area with information is urged to contact the police at 0161 856 7693, with incident number 580. Anonymous tipsters can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
