Detectives have released a CCTV still of a man they wish to trace in connection with a rape investigation.

The victim, a woman in her 30s, was out with work colleagues in Club Zumbale on High Road, N15 in the early hours of 28 May. While in the club she spoke to a man.

At approximately 04:40hrs, the woman left the club and began to walk home. At some point on this journey, the man she had met in the club approached her in a park.

She arrived home at around 06:00hrs. Initially, she did not recall any sexual contact having taken place but a subsequent medical examination revealed penetrative sex had occurred.

After speaking to the victim, detectives from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command were able to identify a suspect on CCTV from the club.

The suspect is described as a clean shaven thin man of Spanish or Portuguese origin, around 5ft 7inches tall with black bushy hair, wearing an orange t-shirt and carrying a bag. He was also wearing a star-shaped pendant.

Officers are appealing for anyone with information that could assist the investigation to come forward and speak to police.

Any witnesses to the incident are also asked to contact officers on 101 or tweet at @MetCC. To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

No arrests; enquiries continue.
