A CCTV camera has captured a horrific video of the moment a woman was sexually assaulted at her doorstep as she was about to enter her house.
From the footage, the woman, who has not been named was seen unlocking her door when a man sneaked up behind her and lifted up her skirt.
The stranger subsequently forced her to the ground and sexually assaulted her while she screamed.
When her boyfriend heard her screams from inside the house in Clapham, South London, he rushed out and with the speed of a lightening, the pervert disappeared.
The woman, who appears to be in her 20s gave permission for the video to be published with hope that the man would be caught.
She disclosed that the incident shocked her as it was too early coupled with the fact that she had on the road for five years and has never felt unsafe.
Narrating her ordeal, the victim said: “It was a Monday night and I was just coming home from work. I walk that same route every day.
“I just walked home, got the keys in the door, and all of sudden, he was there. I wasn’t aware he was there – until he put his hands on me.
“I was so afraid. That’s all I could think of. That’s all that was going through my head.
“I’m just hoping this video will mean he can be caught and won’t get away with it. I don’t want this man doing it to anyone else. It just isn’t acceptable.”
The Metropolitan police said they are investigating the incident.
A police spokesperson said: “Detectives in Lambeth are investigating an allegation of sexual assault at 20:15hrs on Monday 26 October in the Clapham area, SW2.
“A woman in her 20s was sexually assaulted by a man. Enquiries are ongoing and there are no arrests at this stage.”
