Archant

She was attacked on September 30

A rape victim has been left traumatised after she was attacked down an Orpington alleyway.

The victim, who is in her 20s, had got off a nearby bus just after midnight on Saturday, September 30.

As she walked through an alleyway between Brantwood Way and Millwood Road, she thought she was being followed.

According to police, she was then attacked from behind and raped.

Met Police officers have now released a CCTV image of a man walking away from the alleyway minutes after the incident.

A spokesperson from Scotland Yard said: “At this stage, the man shown in the CCTV is being treated as a potential witness to the attack.”

Detectives from the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are now investigating, but no arrests have been made so far.

DC James White, who leads the investigation, said: “This incident took place in a secluded area, and the attack has left the woman traumatized by her ordeal.

“We are releasing an image of a man that we believe may have information that could assist us with our investigation.

“He may be a significant witness and we would ask him, and anyone else who was in the area at just after midnight on Saturday, September 30, to come forward and speak to us.”

Detectives have now made the following appeal: “Anyone with information is urged to call the witness line on 07990 793471 between 08am and 10pm.

“Alternatively call police on 101, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
