Metropolitan Police have published a photo of a man who is wanted for questioning in connection to a horrific sexual assault in North London.
The attack took place near Pancras Square, by King’s Cross Station in the early hours of September 11.
A young woman who was was making her way home after meeting a friend in the area when she noticed that a strange man was following her.
The man caught up to her and attacked her. In the attack, the 20-year-old woman was sexually assaulted.
