Boy, 14, Pleads Guilty To Uni Sex Assaults
A 14-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to five charges of sexual assault on five separate women near Manchester University.
The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared in Manchester City Magistrates Court and was given conditional bail.
The case is adjourned until December 2.
The five assaults, including three near the grounds of Manchester University, occurred over a two-week period late last month.
Detective Chief Inspector Colin Larkin thanked the public for their assistance in the case.
"I am extremely grateful to the public for all the calls we received this weekend after putting an appeal out for information in connection with these incidents," he said.
An 18-year-old man also arrested in connection with the assaults has been bailed pending further enquiries.
