DETECTIVES investigating a sexual assault at knifepoint have urged witnesses or passing drivers to come forward.

The New Journal reported last week how police had taped off areas of King’s Cross after a woman, who had taken herself to hospital, told them how she had been attacked by a man in Tonbridge Street.

The victim is being supported by specialist officers following the attack in the early hours of last Tuesday.

Detective Sergeant Adam Clifton said: “We take all sexual assault cases extremely seriously and have undertaken both door to door and CCTV enquiries in course of this investigation. I am still very keen to hear from anyone who thinks they may have seen something suspicious in the Tonbridge Street area in the early hours of Tuesday August 4.”

He added: “Perhaps you saw someone hanging around or maybe you drove through the area and have dash cam footage of someone on that particular street, even if they were simply walking along the road please do give us a call. No matter how insignificant it may seem, if you were at or passing through that location at around 3am please do share with us anything you saw.”

No arrests have been made so far.

DS Clifton added: “This suspect attacked a vulnerable woman at knifepoint. Although she continues to receive specialist support, the effects of this crime will no doubt be felt long after her injuries have healed. If you saw something, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting 908/4AUG or to remain 100% anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or visit crimestoppers_uk.org.
