CCTV images have been released after a man sexually assaulted and attempted to rape an 18-year-old woman in a north London bakery.

The young woman had just finished an overnight shift at Ali’s Bagels in Cranbrook Road, Ilford, when a man approached the door and said he knew the owner.

When she opened the door to speak to him he pushed his way in, grabbed her and dragged her to the back of the shop.

There he sexually assaulted her and tried to rape her, Scotland Yard said.

A pair of scissors was held against the victim’s throat as she was forced to hand over her purse and robbed of £500.

Detective Constable Angela Nemeth, of the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command, said: “It is vital that the suspect in this case is trace as soon as possible.

“A vulnerable young woman, going about her job, is now dealing with being a victim of sexual assault and robbery, the effects of which run far deeper than a loss of cash.
