PC Ellis Jenkinson, of GMP’s Stockport district, said: “This incident has, understandably, left the victim feeling shaken up. We are supporting her whilst enquiries are ongoing to identify the men responsible.
“It happened in broad daylight in an area that is regularly used by members of the public for walking or cycling so I am hopeful that there are witnesses out there who can assist us with our investigation.
“I appeal to anyone who did witness this incident or has any other information to contact us as soon as possible.”
