Detectives from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are continuing to appeal for information following an allegation of rape in North London.

On 28 May 2017, between 04:40 and 06:00hrs, a 38-year-old woman left Zumbale Latin bar nightclub in Seven Sisters and made her way home to Finsbury Park on foot.

As she walking home, she was approached by a man who began speaking to her. She later found herself in a park, and was found to have been assaulted.

The suspect is described as 5ft 7ins tall, clean shaven, of thin build with black bushy hair.

He was wearing a T-shirt and trousers, either of which may have been orange, and a star-shaped pendant. He was carrying a plastic carrier bag.

CCTV from the night club identified a man matching this description and police are appealing for anyone who may know his identity to come forward. Officers believe that he may have stored his bag behind the bar at the club.

Detective Constable Aga Redworth, of the Met's Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command, said: "The victim left the club and was on her way home. She has no exact recollection of events. Consequently, she is unsure where she was taken to and assaulted.

“Despite in-depth investigation, we have not identified her attacker to date and are appealing to the media and public to help identify this man as part of our inquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on the police non-emergency line on 101 or anonymously on Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 or by Tweeting @MetCC
