POLICE have reissued an appeal to find a thief who sexually assaulted a seven-month pregnant woman.

At around 9am on July 10 this year, the 21-year-old woman was woken by a loud bang at her flat in Penge High Street.

When she looked up a man peered around her bedroom door and said: "Where's Peter? He owes me £500 for cocaine." He then dragged her through to her sitting room and made her get on her knees.

She was asked lots of questions about her family and partner while he looked at her family photographs. When she tried to escape, she was caught half way down the stairs and dragged back up to her flat by her hair.

The suspect then put socks on each hand and sexually assaulted her. Afterwards she was made to make him a cup of coffee which he demanded she feed to him. He also stole a ring from her.

The woman noticed he had a knife tucked in his jacket and managed to run out of her flat to the shop below where she stayed until the police and ambulance arrived. The suspect is a very tall light skinned black man, approximately 6ft 5ins and has a five to seven centimetre scar across his left cheek. He spoke with a London accent and he was wearing a distinctive red body warmer with blue jeans.

Anyone with information should call Bromley police CID on 0208 284 9969 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
