The suspect is described as a black man, approximately 21 yrs old, 5ft 9”, proportionate build with shaven black hair and goatee bird. He was wearing a white sleeveless basketball top with a logo

Detective Constable Helen Rainbow, of Wandsworth CID, said: “If anyone saw this man in the area, or, if you know who this man may be, then please come forward to police and help us catch him.”
