Police have released an e-fit image of a taxi driver who raped a woman he picked up after a night out.

The incident happened in the early hours of Sunday, September 21, last year but was only reported to officers in December.

Although some time has passed since the incident, the description of the offender together with the e-fit is very distinctive and we would like to hear from anyone who thinks they may know who the suspect is

Detective Constable Clare Fisher

The 22-year-old victim had been drinking in Leeds when she got into a taxi to take her to her home in the Kirkstall Road area.

The driver took her to an unknown secluded location where he subjected her to a serious sexual assault.

The victim managed to get free from the car and ran home.

The driver was Asian, aged in his fifties and well built. He was wearing a traditional long white kurta pajama and a white cap.

Detective Constable Clare Fisher, of Leeds CID, said: “Although some time has passed since the incident, the description of the offender together with the e-fit is very distinctive and we would like to hear from anyone who thinks they may know who the suspect is.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Det Con Fisher at Elland Road police station via 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
