Detectives are appealing for information and witnesses after a woman was sexually assaulted by Kidbrooke Railway Station.

Police were called to the station which is near Nelson Mandela Road, SE3 at approximately 08:45hrs on Monday, 25 June.

The victim, a woman in her 20s, explained how she was walking along the pathway that leads to the underpass for Kidbrooke Railway Station when a male approached her from behind whilst riding a bicycle.

He sexually assaulted the woman but cycled off when the woman shouted at him.

The suspect is described as a skinny, white male with dark blond hair, and had two of his front teeth missing. He was wearing a dark grey or black hooded top with a bare chest underneath and riding a blue bike with white writing on it and white front forks.

Detective Constable Alexandra Johnson, from the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences team, said: “This was a despicable opportunist assault on a young woman walking down a path during the morning rush hour. We have a good description of the distinctive suspect and his bike. If you have information on who he is, I would urge you to get in touch.

“I would also like to reassure those who use this path that patrols have stepped up in and around the area and CCTV footage of the area is being studies to help catch the suspect.”

Any witnesses or anyone recognise this description of this male please contact DC Alexandra Johnson on 020 8721 4653 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
