Schoolgirl Raped In Park In “Horrendous” Broad-Daylight Attack

A schoolgirl was raped in a park in a “horrendous” broad daylight attack. The 14-year-old was assaulted while in a secluded area of Avery Hill Park, Greenwich, South East London. She was raped sometime between 9am and 1pm on September 4, police confirmed. Officers have now released CCTV images of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the attack.

A spokesman said: “The attacker is described as a black male believed to be in his 20s, of slim build, with short black hair and a moustache. He was wearing sand-coloured combat trousers, dark shoes which might have been blue, and a grey drawstring bag. He was also wearing sunglasses with black, round lenses.”

Police said the victim was being supported by specialist officers and said no arrests had been made. DC Mark Azariah, from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command, said: “This was a horrendous attack on a vulnerable girl in the middle of the day. If you were in and around the area and saw anyone matching the description of the suspect or saw anything suspicious I would urge you to get in touch.”
