Detectives investigating a serious assault last year have re-issued an e-fit of a suspect.

On December 23 2014, between 6.30-6.40pm, a man rang at the door of an address in Carter Drive, Romford.

A 39-year-old woman answered and was attacked by the man. She was taken to an east London hospital by London Ambulance Service and treated for facial injuries.

The suspect ran off along Carter Drive towards Collier Row Road before getting into a vehicle.

The man is described as tanned, around 5ft 9ins with facial stubble. He is said to have been wearing a plain woolly hat and dark clothing.

A 53-year-old man was arrested for conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm on the same day. He was subsequently bailed to a date later this month.

Anyone who can identify the man in the image should call officers from Havering CID on 01708 779110 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or at crimestoppers-uk.org.
