More Rape Attacks On Unsuspecting Females Thinking They Were Getting In To A Minicab

This is the image of a man wanted by police over the rape of a woman in a multi-storey car park in south London.

Detectives released the CCTV image today saying the victim was picked up by the suspect as she walked home after a night out.

The woman, in her late twenties, was walking along Coldharbour Lane in Brixton when a man offered to take her home for the equivalent of a cab fare.

She got into a dark-coloured sports car which was later seen on CCTV driving towards Denmark Hill. The man drove to what the victim described as a three-floor car park where he allegedly raped her.

Detectives traced an image of the man on CCTV in the street in Brixton on Saturday June 29 after examining footage from cameras following the attack in the early hours the following day.

The suspect is described as black and about 5ft 5in tall. Detective Sergeant Steve Elliott, from the Sapphire sex crime unit, said: “If you know this man, saw him that evening in Brixton or spotted his car then please get in touch.”
