Detectives have launched an appeal for information following a sexual assault on an 18-year-old woman.

The incident on Sunday, August 19, happened after the victim got into what she believed to be a licensed minicab outside Egg nightclub in York Way, King’s Cross, at around 3am and asked to be taken to Paddington.

It is believed that the suspect then drove her to the Euston area in the silver vehicle where he sexually assaulted her. Following the attack, he then took her to Gloucester Place in Westminster where he pushed her from his vehicle and drove away at around 3.55am

The suspect is described as dark European, possibly Turkish, aged around 50, of a large build with stubble and dark thinning greying hair that was gelled back.

Anyone with information should call Det Sgt Brian Richards of Sapphire on 020 7421 0203 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800
