Brutal teenage rape.

A TEENAGE girl found lying naked and covered in blood in a town centre yesterday had been raped and stabbed, police said last night.

The 17-year-old was last night seriously ill in hospital after police officers found her in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. She had a slash wound to her face and two stab wounds in her back.

Detectives are now appealing for help from taxi drivers who might have picked up a bloodstained man.

The girl was found in the town's Baron Street. Her attacker is believed to have taken away her clothing and belongings.

Police said they were hunting a white man around six feet tall in his mid-to-late twenties who was seen in the area. He had short, straight, light-brown hai.
