Officers investigating an allegation of rape in Islington have released an efit of a man they would like to speak to as part of the investigation.

A woman reported being raped in the early hours of Saturday December 6.

She had taken a bus from Green Park to Archway and was approached by two men on scooters. After being lured into an alleyway she was allegedly raped.

The victim was able to struggle free and was helped by a member of the public, who called police.

Det Const Martyn Kenneally said: "If you recognise the man in this photo, please get in touch with us without delay.

"This was a traumatic incident and the victim is being supported by specially trained officers.

"At this time it is not being linked to any other incident."
