Met Police launch e-fit appeal following manhunt who raped 60-year-old woman in south London

The Metropolitan Police said a woman in her sixties was raped by a man at a property in Mitcham.

On Friday, officers published a computer-generated image of a man they want to talk to in connection with this.

The incident occurred on October 11 around 11:30 p.m., and the woman received support from the officers.

“A number of inquiries have been carried out and detectives are currently publishing an image of the suspect wearing e-fit,” the Met said in a statement.

In the photo, the man has red hair and a khaki jacket.

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to email [email protected] or call 101, quoting reference number CAD 3613/11Oct23.

To remain anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Witnesses say the perpetrators, believed to be between 17 and 20 years old, fled with their loot within 20 seconds just after 5 p.m. on Monday. Police have confirmed that a man has died following a double stabbing in south-west London in another incident. West London train station was 21 years old as the murder investigation continued.
