Police have released an e-fit of a person they want to speak to in connection with a sexual assault in Woolwich.

This comes after a 24-year-old woman was attacked when she got off the 161 bus in Church Street, Woolwich, by the junction with Ruston Road, on Friday, September 23, at approximately 9.30pm.

As she walked down the alleyway adjacent to the Co-op Funeral Care she realised she was being followed. A teenager approached her and asked her to go to his house, before sexually assaulting her.

After the victim screamed, the teenager ran off but soon after she noticed that he was still following her.

The suspect is black, about 15-years-old, 6ft 2in, with short black curly hair. At the time of the incident he was wearing a black t-shirt and a black jacket.

Call DC Festus Adedara on 0208 284 9416 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
