Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to following claims that a schoolboy was sexually assaulted in Willesden Green.
The 12-year-old victim said he was approached by his attacker in Park Avenue, who persuaded him to follow him to a property in Griffin Close on January 11, at around 3.50pm.
The boy said the man carried out the sexual assault once they were inside.
The suspect is described as Southeast Asian in appearance, aged in his mid 20s, around 5ft 4ins tall with a slim build.
He was wearing a grey coloured beanie type hat, a light green coloured long sleeved top, grey coloured trousers and he was pushing a bicycle.
Detective Inspector Christine Edgar, who is leading the investigation by the Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, said: “We are appealing for anyone who recognises, or thinks they recognise, the man in the images we’ve released, to contact us.
“We are also continuing to appeal for witnesses, or anyone in or around the areas of Park Avenue and Griffin Close, that saw the man with a boy, to also contact us.”
