"We have a suspect and we need people to help us arrest him so that we can put the allegations made against him to him. We would ask people to look closely at his picture and his name and contact us with his whereabouts."

The man is believed to be 37-year-old Cheng He of no fixed address.

Detectives are notifying all police forces to be on the look-out for him.

Anyone with information in connection with this rape is urged to contact detectives at Brentwood?s Sexual Offences Investigation Team on 101.
