Woman sexually assaulted in Wembley alleyway, police investigating

Police investigating a sexual assault of a woman in Wembley have released an E-fit of a man they are looking to identify.

The woman, aged in her 20s, was attacked at 6:25pm on Thursday 31 August while walking in an alley way between Manor Farm Road and Athlon Road in Wembley.

The incident took place about halfway up the alley, where the white wall of Busy Bee Merchants meets a black fence.

Detective Constable Annabella Davies leads the investigation and is asking for anyone who recognises the man to contact police without delay.

Police are particularly keen to hear from a female bystander who approached the woman after the attack and also from a man who stopped to assist. Neither of these witnesses were still on the scene when the police arrived.

DC Davies said: “This was an appalling attack on a young woman. We have been investigating the offence for a number of weeks and unfortunately we have not identified a suspect. We continue to investigate and are doing everything we can to secure justice for the victim-survivor.

“Please look at this image carefully. Could you have been in the location on Thursday 31 August? Do you live or work in the area and do you recognise this man?

“We are very interested to speak to the woman and man who helped the victim at the time of the incident. We believe you may hold some key information that could help this investigation and we urge you to get in touch. If you would rather contact us anonymously you can do so via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.

“Please share any information or concerns you have with us as it could be the break in the case we are looking for.”

Anyone with information which could assist detectives in this investigation is asked to call 101, quoting CAD 006481/31AUG23.
