Park Rape Investigation: CCTV Image Released

Police are hunting this suspect after a 59 year-old woman claims she was raped in a west London park in the early hours of the morning.

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police's Sexual Offences Exploitation & Child Abuse Command are appealing for the public’s help to identify the man.

At approximately 3.40am on Sunday, July 10, last year a group of friends were walking along James Street, Hounslow, towards Inwood Park.

As they neared the park they heard sounds that suggested someone needed help.

The friends climbed into the park and found the woman, who stated 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, Hounslow, which shows the woman heading inside a cab office.

At approximately 1115am, 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.
