Detectives from the Sexual Offences Exploitation and Child Abuse Command are appealing for the public's help to identify a man they want to speak to as part of a rape investigation in Hounslow.
At approximately 3.40am on Sunday July 10, a group of friends were walking along James Street in Hounslow, towards Inwood Park. As they got near to the park they heard sounds that suggested someone needed help.
The friends climbed into the park and found a woman, aged 59, who stated that she had been raped.
Police were called to the park and an investigation was started. As part of that investigation officers have carried out an extensive trawl of local CCTV.
Detectives have recovered CCTV from the nearby High Street in Hounslow, which shows the 59-year-old woman heading inside a cab office. At approximately 1.15am, CCTV shows her leaving the cab office and walking along Hanworth Road towards the park with an unknown man.
The man is described as approximately 6ft tall, clean shaven with short dark hair.
Anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV or has any information that may assist the investigation is asked to contact police on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
