Girl, 15, sexually assaulted at London beauty spot as cops launch manhunt for suspect 'in his late teens' | The Sun

COPS are on the hunt for a person who allegedly sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl at a popular London beauty spot.

The suspect is believed to be "in his late teens" as police launch a manhunt in relation to the incident.

The victim, who is 15, had been in Hampstead Heath when she was targeted near the Parliament Hill Viewpoint at around 10.45pm on Saturday, June 3.

The Metropolitan Police say the suspect is believed to be around 5ft 8ins tall, with short brown hair, and was wearing jeans and a blue t-shirt.

Officers say the victim and her attacker are not thought to have known each other well prior to the incident as they were part of different friendship groups.

Detective Sergeant Sam Lockstone, from the local policing team in Camden, said: "We have carried out a number of enquiries, including a trawl for CCTV and a forensic examination of the scene.

"We believe there were a large number of teenagers on Parliament Hill at the time of the assault and it's thought the victim and suspect were part of different friendship groups".

He is now urging for anyone who witnessed any "suspicious activity" to contact the team immediately.

"I would also encourage parents of children who were in the area last night to ask them if they can assist the investigation," he added.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 7852/03Jun.
