Police have released an e-fit image of a man they are searching for following a “serious” sexual offence in Lambeth.

The incident took place in July 2017 in a communal lift at a residential block.

The woman found the courage to report the incident to police in October 2023 and she is being supported by specially trained officers as work continues to identify the man responsible.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or ‘X’ @MetCC and quote ref: 3735/08MAY24

You can also provide information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Detective Constable Beth Cuttell-Bladen, from the policing team that covers Lambeth, said: “Despite the time that has passed since the incident, the woman has been able to provide us with a detailed description of the man who attacked her in 2017.

“I would ask people to look at the E-FIT and see if they recognise this person – please contact us if you can help.

“No matter how long has elapsed since an incident like this, we will listen and support anyone who comes to us for help, and investigate where we can.”
