Tooting rapist e-fit
Police have released an e-fit of a man they want to speak to in connection with the rape of a woman in Tooting Metropolitan Police

Police have released an e-fit of a man suspected of forcing a woman into a house and raping her. The woman, in her 20s, was attacked as she approached her car, which was parked on Lucien Road in Tooting, just after midnight on Wednesday 21 September.

She was forced into a nearby home where she was raped. The attacker then fled the scene.

The suspect is described as being of Asian appearance, between 20 and 25-years-old and with a thin moustache. He was wearing glasses, a red-hooded top and light-coloured tracksuit bottoms at the time of the attack.

Police have also released CCTV footage of the attacker, who has been wanted by police for almost a month.

Inspector Andrew Wadey, from the Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, said: "This was a terrifying attack on a lone woman and it is really important that we catch him as soon as possible. I am appealing directly to anyone who may recognise the man in this e-fit to get in touch and tell us who he may be.

"The e-fit is extremely clear and I am certain that someone will know him; he may even be someone close to you. Please help us identify him."

According to The Sun, investigators have been able to obtain a DNA profile of the suspect. Det Insp Wadey said: "As we have a profile any information about potential suspects given to us can be quickly and easily eliminated or verified, so I would like to reassure anyone that is concerned about providing information."

The victim was taken to a haven, and is now being supported by specialist officers.

Anyone who recognises the man, or who has any information that could assist the investigation is asked to call detectives on 020 8721 4251.
