A 23-year-old man has been charged with the kidnapping and sexual assault of a young girl in Manchester, police said.
Liverpool resident Ewis Jones has been charged with two counts of sexual assault by penetration and one count of kidnapping.
He is due to appear in Salford Magistrates Court later today, Greater Manchester Police said.
“Fortunately, the victim was safely reunited with her family shortly afterwards and we continue to provide the victim and her family with the support they need at such a distressing time,” police said.
On August 17, police were called to reports of a kidnapping and assault of a six-year-old girl on Warne Avenue in Droylsden.
Police then made the arrest on August 18 after CCTV footage was released.
“We would like to thank the public once again for their support in this investigation and for their participation in our appeals,” police added.
