A man exposed himself to a teenager at a pub in central London before making rape threats and throwing a pint glass.

The 19-year-old woman was at a pub in Bishops Bridge Road, near Paddington railway station, where the disturbing incident took place just before 11pm.

The man first verbally abused the young victim before exposing himself to her and threatening to rape her.

Before he left the premises, he threw a pint glass, which hit the wall and shattered near her.

The teen attended a west London police station the following day to report what happened.

The Metropolitan Police have now released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with what happened on May 18.

In the picture, he can be seen wearing a dark T-shirt, shorts and trainers, and carrying a backpack.

Detective constable Sean Crocker said this was an ‘unprovoked and frightening’ attack.
