He is described as Asian, of a slim build, and spoke with a foreign accent.

He grabbed the woman and pushed her to the floor, and attempted to pull off her clothing. He then ran off towards Kingsley Road.

Detective Sergeant Nicki Beecher, of Hounslow Sapphire Unit, said:

"This was a frightening attack on a woman making her way home. The victim showed remarkable bravery in confronting the suspect, causing him to run away. We urge anyone who recognises the man to come forward and speak to us."
