Detectives investigating the rape of a woman in Camden have released a new CCTV image of a man they would like to identify and speak to about the investigation.

The victim reported she had been raped by a man in an alleyway off Camden High Street just after 11.30pm on October 2.

The woman, who had left a nightclub to go and get some food at a kebab shop across the road, was followed by the man, according to Scotland Yard.

He talked to her in the shop and groped her. 

Although she tried to move away numerous times, he did not leave her alone, and when she left the shop, he followed her into an alleyway and allegedly raped her.

Last month police released images of a man they wanted to identify, and have now renewed their appeal.
