Police have arrested a group of men after a teenager in care was raped on two separate occasions this weekend.
The first incident of sexual abuse relating to the 14-year-old is alleged to have taken place on Thursday July 30.
Police then received a second report that the same teenager had been taken to an address in Rochdale and raped by a group of men on Saturday August 1.
The girl is being supported by specially trained officers.
Police are now investigating the possibility that the two incidents are linked and have arrested six men on suspicion of rape.
Detective Inspector Paul Copplestone of the Serious Sexual Offences Unit said: “We have made significant progress in the investigation and have so far arrested six people who have since been bailed and at this stage I would like to stress that we do not believe there to be a threat to anyone else in Rochdale.
“Our key priority is ensuring that the victim is fully supported during this extremely traumatic time.
“I want to assure the people of Rochdale and the rest of Greater Manchester that tackling offences of this nature remains a top priority for Greater Manchester Police and we will continue to do everything in our power to prevent the sexual exploitation of children whilst also providing support to the victims.”
All of the men have been bailed until October 29 pending further enquiries.
