Police were called to Royal Street, outside St Thomas’ Hospital, at 1:23am on 12 November 2019 to a report of a rape.

A woman in her 40s was physically assaulted before being raped by an unknown man on Royal Street, near the junction with Lambeth Park Road.

Detective Sergeant Paul Barham, investigating the incident, said: “This is clearly a horrific incident and we are doing all we can to support the woman and find who is responsible.

“The man in the CCTV is wearing distinctive clothing so I appeal to anyone who recognises these items of clothing or believes they know who the man is to contact us straightaway.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference CAD 379/12NOV.
