Attempted rape: Police appeal

 Police have launched an appeal for a man who attacked a woman that he had followed from Shepherd's Bush on the 207 bus. The attempted sexual assault happened on 1st April 2011 at approx 00:30 nr Acton Park, High Street,W3. I know at least one woman, who reads this blog, that experienced a similar thing to this in recent months and will be asking her to look at these images - please ensure you do too if you know someone in a similar position. It wasn't so long ago that an actual rape took place just off Goldhawk Road so let's see if we can't do what we can to get this individual off our streets. 

The victim of this attack, a 21 year old old woman, had been out on a night out when she was followed by the suspect from Shepherds Bush tube station, he followed her on to a 207 night bus heading towards Acton Park, she alighted there and he continued to follow her and as they approached Acton Park, the suspect tried to assault her. She managed to get away and contact police.

Police would like to speak to a man who is described as being an asian man, aged in his late 20's, approx 5'10" tall. He has short black hair and a deep London accent, he also had distinctive v shaped markings on the back of his head.

Officers from Ealing's Serious Violence Team are investigating the assault and have released two e fits of the man they would like to identify in connection with this enquiry. You can see them here.

DC Lorraine Davies from the Serious Violence Team at Ealing said
"We are very keen to speak to the man in connection with this incident and ask for anyone who knows who or where he is to contact us".
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 020 8246 1186 or call Crimestoppers Anonymously on 0800 555 111.
