Runner in warning to other joggers after she was sexually assaulted by three men in street
A runner is warning other women to be wary of jogging at night after three men ‘circled her’ and sexually assaulted her in the street.
Claire Worswick was just half a mile from her house when she describes the terrifying moment the men blocked her and started touching her at about 9pm on Friday night in Ashton-Under-Lyne .
The 33-year-old, who bravely said the M.E.N. could name her in a bid to prevent other runners being targeted, said: “I was just doing a short run and I have lived in Ashton all of my life so always feel safe. I got a few minutes into the run when there were three men walking towards me on Turner Lane .
“One of them had a bike and as I approached them they were on the pavement so I ran onto the road. Then one of them put his bike in front of me to block me. Then the other two men circled around me.
“They tried to pull my trousers down and then started touching me between my legs and smacking me on the bottom.
“I didn’t really know what to say or do. It went on for a couple of minutes and I tried to get past them but the man with the bike kept moving it in front of me.”
She said she was worried they would take her to a nearby alleyway and attack her. But she managed to escape and ran the short distance home.
She added: “I was ok at first but I then called the police just to make them aware of it. But they told me it was sexual assault and they were glad I called them.
“I called my brother and then just burst into tears.”
Claire is an avid runner but said she has been left scared and will no longer go running after dark.
She added: “I never run with headphones in so I know what’s going on around me and I have lived here all of my life so always felt safe. But I won’t be going out in the dark anymore. It has really shook me up.
“I feel angry that these were men who should have known better and known what they were doing was wrong. I just want people to be aware of this.
“These men will have mothers and sisters, how would they feel if someone did that to them. It’s disgusting.
“I felt I had to tell people about it because the next person might not be so lucky.”
A police spokesman said: “
At around 9.10pm on Friday, March 11 2016, police were called to reports that a 33-year-old woman had been assaulted whilst out jogging on Turner Lane, Ashton-under-Lyne.
“All of the men are described as white and between 19 and 20-years-old with one of them wearing a parker style coat with dark coloured fur on the hood.
Sergeant Steve Lovatt of GMP’s Tameside Division said: “This is a worrying incident that left the victim understandably terrified.
“I know this will no doubt worry many people in the local community but we have increased patrols in the area for reassurance and are keen to speak to anyone who may information about what happened.”
