A 34-year-old woman was attacked and raped in an alleyway in Crawley this week.
The woman was walking in the alley between Ifield Road and Furzefield in West Green when she was grabbed from behind by an Asian man.
He tripped her, pinned her down and raped her shortly after 10pm on Monday July 22.
The attacker is described as slim and 5'6" to 5'8". He was wearing a black t-shirt and white footwear.
Detective Inspector Sarah Barrett, of West Sussex CID, said: "The victim is understandably traumatised by her terrifying ordeal and we are offering her every support we can.
"We would like to speak to anyone who recognises the description of her attacker or saw the man following or assaulting her.
"The attacker may have run home after the assault so friends or relatives may have seen him out of breath shortly after 10pm on Sunday or Monday."
Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 2095 of 23 July or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
