A 14-year-old girl was raped in a “horrendous attack” in broad daylight in a London park, police have said.

The teenager was in a secluded part of Avery Hill Park, off Avery Hill Road in Greenwich, when she was attacked between 9am and 1pm on 4 September.

Scotland Yard released images of the man they would like to speak to in connection with the rape.

DC Mark Azariah, of the force’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command, said: “This was a horrendous attack on a vulnerable girl in the middle of the day.

“If you were in and around the area and saw anyone matching the description of the suspect or saw anything suspicious, I would urge you to get in touch.

“Likewise, if you have information about the man wanted for questioning as a result of the images released today, my team are waiting for your call.”

The suspect was described as a black male of slim build, with short black hair and a moustache. He was believed to be in his twenties.
