E-fit of suspected rapists released by police after attack in Plumstead

Detectives investigating a rape have released an e-fit of two men they wish to speak to in connection with the attack.

In the early hours of Sunday, 27 May, a 47-year-old woman was approached by three men in a Ford Ka on Plumstead High Street junction with Church Manor Way.

The victim got into the car voluntarily and was taken to a car park at Bostall Heath on Longleigh Lane where she was raped.

She was then driven towards Plumstead High Street where she managed to run from the car to a nearby address to seek help.

The suspects were not known to the victim.

Detective Inspector Steve Birchall, from the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command, said: “This is a rare occurrence and while patrols in that area have not identified any suspects in this case there has been no further such offending. If you believe you can identify either of these suspects from the e-fits then please contact the police.”

Anyone who may know the identity of the men shown in the e-fit or has information that may assist the investigation is urged to call police on 101 quoting ref CAD 955/27MAY18 or tweet @MetCC or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
