Detectives investigating the rape of a woman, who was attacked by a stranger in Bromley, have released an image of a man they would like to speak to taken from the N199 bus route that runs across the north of the borough.
Police were called just after midnight at 12:39am three weeks ago on Friday, 20 March to reports of a man restraining and assaulting a woman in Turpington Lane, Bromley.
Officers quickly attended and found the woman, aged in her late teens.
The victim told officers she had been dragged into the bushes by an unknown man and raped.
The London Ambulance Service attended and took the victim to a south London hospital. She received a head injury and two black eyes in the attack.
Officers, including the Met’s Dog Unit, with assistance from the National Police Air Service searched the area but there was no trace of the suspect.
The victim is being supported by specially trained officers.
Detectives have released an image of a man who was on the N199 bus with the victim. Both alighted at the Southborough Library stop on Southborough Lane. Police say he is the last person to be seen alongside the victim that night in the vicinity of the attack.
Anyone who recognises the man is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 181/20MAR. Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org
