Shoreditch Park sex attack - police appeal for information one year on
Nearly one year on from a brutal sex attack in Shoreditch Park - in which one woman was raped while her friend was sexually assaulted - police have renewed their appeal to catch the two men responsible.
Detectives have issued another appeal for information, along with this e-fit of one of the suspects, as they hunt the pair for the attack that happened on Sunday, May 22, between 1.50am and 2.20am.
The women had entered the park from Pitfield Street, by the Britannia Leisure Centre, when they were approached by two men who asked for directions to an off licence before attacking them and leaving the scene, in an unknown direction.
The first suspect is described as Mediterranean in appearance, in his late 20s, 6ft tall, with a heavy build and short cropped hair. He was wearing light jeans and white trainers.
Police have released an e-fit of the second suspect, who also appeared to be Mediterranean. He was aged around 22, had a slim build, with dark eyes, a tanned complexion, and black spiky straight hair.
