The “monstrous” attack happened in the Smithills area of Bolton early this morning.

The elderly victim was forced inside her house by the teenage rapist as she was checking outside.

After demanding money he stabbed her in the hand and leg with a small knife before repeatedly raping her in an attack which lasted between 30 minutes and an hour.

Police called the attack “disgusting and vicious” and are appealing for help in tracking down the rapist.
