DETECTIVES have released images of four men they wish to speak to in connection with the sexual assault of a woman in Uxbridge.
The men, all of whom are Asian in appearance and between 25 to 30 years old, were captured on CCTV shortly before the offence was committed in the early hours of June 5.
The victim, who is in her mid 20s, had been out socialising at a nightclub in the High Street with her friends when at around 3.30am, when she separated from them to make her way home via a nearby mini cab office.
It is understood that as the woman walked along the High Street, the first male suspect approached her and started to talk as she walked. He then made verbal advances towards her, which she declined.
As they walked on towards Windsor Street, the man was then joined by three further men who also made verbal advances towards her.
The woman attempted to move away from all four men, who were at times speaking in a foreign language, however they blocked her path.
It is then believed that she was sexually assaulted by more then one of the men.
The woman was eventually able to flee the men to a nearby cab office and alert the police.
Detective Inspector Ali Fenton, of the Sapphire unit based at Hounslow, said: "Despite the time passage, officers have been following extensive enquiries using every investigative resource available.
"We continue to offer support to the victim who has bravely come forward to recount the awful actions which happened that night. I urge people to look closely at the images of these men."
This incident is not linked to the alleged rape of a woman, who was forced into a car after leaving the Liquid/Envy nightclub in September before being attacked.
Anyone with information is urged to call the incident room 020 8721 3952; Or if you with to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
