Police have released CCTV images and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward about an attacker who barged into a woman’s home after he followed her there from a tube station.
The man stalked the 28-year-old woman after she got off a Piccadilly Line train at Arsenal Underground station. He tried to converse with her as he followed her along the road, but when she got home he forced his way in, pushed her to the floor and sexually assaulted her in the hallway.
The suspect, reported to be aged between 25 and 35, around 5ft 11 and of medium build with short brown hair was caught on CCTV on the Underground, at around 12.20am on May 13, and walking back along Gillespie Road, north London, after the attack.
Detective Inspector Beverly Hawes, the investigating officer, said,
“The victim suffered a terrible attack on her own doorstep. I urgently appeal to anyone who may recognise the man captured on CCTV, or has any information that can assist this investigation, to contact police.”
