After assaulting her, Bursk bit her and called her a ‘brat’ as she turned away and buried her head in a teddy bear while he tried to rape her.
The girl’s sister bravely intervened and tried to push Bursk away before he shoved both children and ran off, with CCTV footage capturing him running from the scene, holding his trousers up.

From November 2018 to November 2019, he stalked a district of Radcliffe as a secret sex beast.
Other Sexual Assault
Police believe he would deliberately look through windows and into gardens to look for toys – to find where children lived.
Fuelled by alcohol, he would peep through windows and try numerous front and back doors in the early hours until he found one that was open.
Once inside a home, his targets were the most vulnerable – children and a woman.
Bursk sexually abused two children and a woman in her 70s. Police say he attempted to trespass at several properties ‘with the intention of committing sexual acts’.
The attacks took place between November 2018 and November 2019.
At Minshull Street Crown Court, Bursk admitted two counts of sexual assault of a child under 13; one count of attempted rape of a child under 13; one count of sexual assault of a woman in her 70s; three counts of attempting to trespass with intent to commit a sexual offence; and four counts of trespass with intent to commit a sexual offence.
The offences related to eight separate incidents and included a sexual assault on a child from 2012, also in Radcliffe.
Judge John Potter described Bursk as a ‘deviant sexual predator’ who had sunk to the ‘depths of depravity’.
He’s now been jailed for 15 years – with an additional five years on extended licence.
Detective Supt Howard Millington, who led Operation Horsley into Bursk, said: ‘Bursk is a sexual predator. He loses a lot of his inhibitions, especially when he has had alcohol. He is a very dangerous man – particularly a danger to women and young girls who are vulnerable by reason of age.’
