Woman, 24, raped in Peckham

POLICE ARE seeking a man with a ‘strong African accent’ following a rape in Peckham, south east London.

The 24-year-old victim was attacked after alighting a train at Peckham Rye station on her way home last Wednesday (Oct 10).

The man, described as black and in his late 20s or early 30s, approached her from behind and placed his arm around her shoulder asking the victim if he could talk to her.

The victim then screamed and was immediately grabbed by the throat and led into shrubbery close to the railway line and raped. 

The attacker, who police say is between five feet ten and six feet tall, then left the park in the direction of Lyndhurst Way, also in south east London.

The victim then contacted police. 

Anyone with information are asked to call detectives on 020 8721 4640; or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. 

No arrests have been made.
