Northumbria Police renew their appeal for information ten years after a 16-year-old girl was raped in Washington.
"We're renewing our appeal to make sure he gets caught and faces the consequences of the attack and give the victim the opportunity to move on from the ordeal.
"The man will know he is wanted by police and our message to him is despite it being ten years since the attack, our enquiries will continue and new forensic advancements will mean we will find him."
"Incidents like this do not happen often and it is even more unusual that the attacker has not yet been caught. However, we understand attacks like this cause concern in the community and I'd like to reassure people that our enquiries will continue.
"We want people to take a look at the image and, bearing in mind the man may look older, contact us if they think they know who he is or have information that could help us identify him."
