The woman, in her 30s, was walking along Park Road, Wigan when she began talking to three men at around 9.20pm on Saturday 16 November.
The four all walked to Mesnes Park, where one of the men raped her while the other two men stood by.

They all remain in custody for questioning. Detective Sergeant Sarah Bell of GMP’s Wigan District said: ‘This was a despicable attack on a lone woman who is currently being supported by specialist officers.
‘While we have arrested three people in connection with this incident, we are continuing to appeal to the public for information. ‘Were you in the area at the time and do you have any information that can assist us? If so, contact police immediately.’
