Police have released a picture of a man they want to speak to in connection with an alleged sex attack on a teenage girl.
The image has been circulated as detectives investigate the reported assault, which is said to have happened in Harrietsham, near Maidstone , on September 18.
In the early hours of the morning, the victim is alleged to have been assaulted by a man she had met earlier while out with a friend in Ashford.
Officers are continuing to probe what happened in the early hours and establishing the full circumstances of the incident, and believe the person captured on CCTV could have "important information" which would help their investigation.
Detective constable Sam Highwood said: "We would really like to speak to this man, who may be able to offer some important context to the circumstances surrounding these allegations.
"If you recognise him or have any information which can assist the investigation, please don’t hesitate to contact us."
