The victim, a 19-year-old woman, reported being raped in Kingston University accommodation in the early hours of Thursday, 12 November.

Beforehand she is believed to have been travelling with a male passenger in a white coloured taxi from Pryzm nightclub, Clarence Street, Kingston to Portland Road, Kingston at just after 2:30am.

The victim is described as white with ginger hair and was wearing a black dress and the man with her at the time is described as a middle eastern man aged in his 20s, with short black hair. He was wearing a black jumper.

Officers would also like to locate a second taxi driver, who drove a silver coloured taxi and picked up the victim and two other women (one of whom was white and the other Asian) outside the Metro Bank in Eden Street, Kingston earlier on Wednesday, 11 November at about 11:45pm. They were driven to Pryzm nightclub after making a slight detour to one of their homes to fetch ID.

The drivers, or anyone with any information, that could assist the investigation is asked to contact Detective Constable Rob Way who is leading the investigation on 020 8721 4106.
