At around 4am on Sunday (April 2) the victim, a woman in her 20s, was dragged to the ground and sexually assaulted outside Strudwick Court in Binfield Road, SW4.
The victim’s screams for help alerted nearby members of the public which caused the suspect to run away from the scene towards Stockwell Underground Station.
