CCTV footage has been released of a man police wish to identify in connection with a terrifying sex attack near Stockwell Underground Station.
Metropolitan Police wish to speak to the man who can be seen walking on Clapham Road in the video footage.
He is described as short, around 5ft 5ins tall, tanned or "dark skinned European" with dark hair and possibly in his late 20s.
He can be seen wearing a blue coloured jacket over a white shirt, dark red trousers and brown shoes.
Detectives investigating the traumatic ordeal in which a young woman was pushed to the ground and sexually assaulted, are also keen to speak to a female who disturbed the attacker after hearing the victim's screams for help.
Officers believe the woman who came to the victim's rescue also directed another person, a man, to the scene to assist, which led to the attacker to flee the scene.
Officers from the Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command continue to appeal for witnesses and information following the attack outside Strudwick Court in Binfield Road at around 4am on Sunday (April 2).
Detective Inspector Suzanne Jordan, from the investigating team, said: "Stranger attacks of this nature are fortunately rare, and with this investigation we are working hard to identify a suspect and prevent any further incidents occurring.
"I am appealing to anyone who thinks they recognise the man in the CCTV we have released to contact us. Their information could be crucial to our investigation.
"We believe a number of people would have been in the vicinity at the time of the offence.
"We are urgently seeking to speak to any person who may have information in relation to this incident, or the identity of the assailant.
"We are particularly keen to speak to a woman, who we believe helped disturb the attacker making him flee the scene before anything worse happened. Hopefully this person will know who they are, as they helped direct another man to assist the victim, and will contact us to assist our investigation."
Police believe the suspect ran away from the scene towards Stockwell Underground Station.
The victim is receiving support from specialist officers.
Any witnesses or anyone who has information or recognises the man is urged to contact the investigation team on 020 8721 4106, or via 101, or by tweeting @MetCC.
