A woman has been raped in Greenwich while trying to make her way home.

The 19-year-old found herself alone after losing her friends following a night out. She was waiting far a night bus at a stop in Blackheath Hill when she was approached by her attacker.

The man took the teenager into a block of nearby flats and subjected her to a “horrific attack” police said.

The woman was able to escape following the rape and alerted police.

Detectives in Lewisham have now released CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the attack which took place at around 4.15am on Sunday, June 12.

He is described as white, of a slim build, in his late twenties or early thirties and approximately 5ft 9ins tall.
