Detective Constable Neil Jones, of Salford CID, said: "Thankfully this young girl was able to fight this man off. She pushed him away, ran off and told her mum who immediately called the police. This girl was doing nothing wrong; simply walking home from school. I don't want to alarm people in the area - particularly pupils and their parents - but it is important that people take a good look at the e-fit and help us catch this person. Patrols have been stepped up in the area".
