Police have released an image of a woman they would like to speak to in connection with an assault on a deaf girl.
Police say the teenager was verbally abused and shoved three times in the head and shoulder by the stranger, when she used sign language to try to communicate with her. The victim was sitting with her friend on the train - which was travelling between Manchester Piccadilly and Stockport - when two women started talking to them.
The girl tried to explain that she was deaf by using sign language.
However the two women became angry and abusive. They started shouting at the girl, before the victim was shoved three times in the head and shoulder by one of the women. Now police are trying to trace a woman who is pictured in CCTV footage following the attack, which happened at about 8.25pm on Sunday, January 29.
