Police are appealing for information after a 15-year-old girl was raped in Crouch End in December.
The teenager was attacked as she walked down an alleyway on Nelson Road, near the junction with Tottenham Lane between 9.30pm and 10.30pm on Saturday December 2.
It is believed the man attempted to chase the victim as she ran away after the attack, and passers-by shouted at him to stop.
The incident was reported to the police on Tuesday January 16, after the victim spoke to a teacher.
The suspect is described as a white man, around 6ft tall, of proportionate build, aged between 30 and 50-years old, with a red-faced complexion.
He was wearing a beanie hat, a jumper pulled over his chin and mouth, a black Puffa-style jacket, and dark trousers and trainers.
DC Matthew Cron from the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command, said: “This was a horrific attack on a young girl by an unknown suspect. We believe that a number of people saw the suspect as he ran from the scene, and we would urge them or anyone else with information, or who saw anyone suspicious in the Nelson Road area on that day, to come forward.”
