E-fit Issued After Man Raped in Morden Hall Park
E-fit of man police are seeking to identify

Police investigating an allegation of rape in Morden Hall Park have released an e-fit of a man they are seeking to identify.

A man in his twenties reported that he had been attacked by another man in the park shortly before 7pm on Monday 25 July.

As he was walking through the park, he realised he was being followed. He was pushed to the ground and raped in a wooded area before managing to escape.

The suspect is described as a white man, aged around 50, about 6ft tall, of slim build with a short grey beard. He was wearing black thin rimmed glasses, a blue top, blue shorts and a luminous yellow cap.

The victim is being supported by specially trained officers.

Detective Constable Hannah Saunders, from the South West Basic Command Unit, is leading the investigation. She said, “We have released an e-fit image of the man we want to speak to. Give the detailed description provided I hope someone may recognise him – if you do, please get in contact.”

Anyone with information that could assist police is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD 5617/26Jul.

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