A man has been arrested after reports a four-year-old girl was raped in Salford.
Police were called to an address in the city following a disturbance and later detained a 21-year-old male.
He was held on suspicion of rape and taken into custody for questioning.
In a statement Greater Manchester Police said: 'Shortly after 4.30am on Monday June 26th police were called to reports of a disturbance in Salford.
'Officers attended and a 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of rape at a nearby address in connection with the rape of a 4-year-old girl, earlier that morning. He remains in custody for questioning.
The girl and her family are being supported by specially trained officers at this difficult time and anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting reference number 321 of 26/06/17 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.'
The incident in Salford comes just two days after an unconnected allegation of rape at a popular park in north Manchester.
A boy of 16 was charged with the rape of an eight-year-old girl who was attacked in broad daylight on Saturday.
The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was remanded in custody after appearing at Manchester Youth Court on Monday morning.
He was arrested after reports that a young girl was raped at Nuthurst Park in New Moston at around 7pm on Saturday evening. Part of the park was cordoned off.
