Detectives attempting to solve a decade-old rape case have released the name of a man they want to question.

The victim was 20 years old when she went to the Spotted Dog pub in High Road, Brent, north west London, on 29 June 2004.

Police say she left with 58-year-old Gonzales Santana, who is of Spanish heritage but was born in the UK and has a British accent.

She was attacked in the early hours of the next morning in nearby Wembley.

In the past, Mr Santana has been known to frequent the Notting Hill area of west London but is believed to move around a lot, police said.

He has links to Bognor Regis in West Sussex, Morecambe in Lancashire and the Tiverton and Exeter areas of Devon.

Det Con Stuart O'Brien said: "We are keen to trace Mr Santana in connection with this incident. If anyone knows where he is, or has any information about that evening, please contact us.

"This incident happened more than 10 years ago but has been reviewed several times over the years to ensure all lines of inquiry are being explored.

"The victim is naturally eager to see her attacker convicted and the Met remains committed to solving this case."
