A CCTV appeal has been shared by police investigating a sexual assault in a Stockwell park.

Images of four men police want to identity have been circulated in relation to the attack in July last year.

The victim, a woman in her 20s, is believed to have been attacked while unconscious in Slade Gardens around 2.30am on Saturday, August 1. 

She had gone to the park with four men she had met that night after drinking in a nearby bar.

The group left the venue at around 2am and it is believed the victim was assaulted at around half an hour later after losing consciousness. 

When she woke up she realised her bank cards had been stolen.

Detectives have now released images of four men, believed to be friends, captured on CCTV (below).

Detective Constable Colette Daoud, from the Met’s Central South Safeguarding team, said: “This was an atrocious attack on a lone woman who was targeted late at night and subjected to serious sexual violence.

“We are requesting the public’s help to identify the men pictured. If you recognise any of these men, please come forward and speak to us.

“If you have any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, it is vital you get in touch.”

In August last year three men, aged 45, 46 and 33 were arrested on suspicion of raping the victim in the early hours of Saturday, August 1 and were released under investigation.

Anyone with information or who recognises the men captured in the CCTV is asked to contact police on 101, quoting reference CAD 4055/01AUG20, or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
