13-year old girl dragged into the forest and raped beyond recognition

The teenager was walking along Tooting Bec Common at around 7pm on Thursday when a man forced her into woods, the Metropolitan Police said.

After dragging her into the forest and raping her, the suspect ran off and escaped.

Metro UK reported that Detective Inspector Keith Ward, from the Sexual Offences Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, said he was eager to catch the offender before attacked someone else.

‘This was a horrific attack on a vulnerable young girl who was forced by this man into a secluded area and raped,’ he said.

‘The victim was able to provide a very good description of her attacker and we are keen to catch him before he has the opportunity to strike again.’

The man is described as white, about 20-years-old, around 6ft tall, with a slim build with dark eyes and was clean shaven.
