Adam Salah jailed over ‘harrowing’ attempted sex attack on woman in Salford park

A teenage sex predator who carried out a ‘harrowing’ attack on a woman has been jailed for almost six years.

Police said Adam Salah had to be tasered by police to stop him after officers found the 19-year-old on top of the woman in parkland in Salford late at night.

Detectives said the victim, in her 30s, suffered ‘a harrowing and deeply distressing’ ordeal during which she was attacked and choked in Albert Park in Broughton last April.

Salah, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to a charge of attempted sexual assault at Manchester Crown Court last September.

He was sentenced to five years and 10 months in prison.

The victim was walking along Great Cheetham Street in Salford, at around 3am on Tuesday, April 1, when two men started calling to her.

She ignored them but one of the men, Salah, walked over to her and grabbed her, pushing her up against a wall, police said.

Salah’s friend tried to drag him off and away from the victim, who started to call police and screamed at Salah “you’re not getting away with this.”

Officers then received a harrowing phone call from the victim at around 3.40am, when she screamed down the phone that someone had attacked her and was following her again.

She begged the police to find her quickly and was able to tell the call taker where she was before she was heard screaming as the phone went dead.

While being followed after the initial contact, Salah had turned around and approached the victim again, grabbing her around the neck and putting her in a choke hold.

The victim scratched and bit Salah in a bid for freedom, police said.

After the 999 call, two officers quickly made their way to Albert Park and followed screaming to where Salah was lying on top of the victim.

They tried to pull Salah away but he resisted with such force that the officers were forced to use a Taser in order to restrain him, police added.

Detective Constable Richard Hudd said: “This was undoubtedly a harrowing and deeply distressing experience from the victim.

“Salah was out of control, he could not be restrained by his friend in the first instance and even our trained officers struggled to restrain him when they found him attacking her in the park.”
