It is alleged the girl was approached by a man she did not know in a woodland area where he raped her. He is described as being white, in his late 40s, of average build, five feet and five inches tall and with green eyes.

Det Insp Richard Pringle, of the Maidstone Vulnerability Investigation Team, said: ‘Whilst this incident happened two years ago, the victim has now been able to assist us in the creation of a computer-generated image of the suspect.
‘We are urging anybody who believes they recognise the person or who has any other information to call the appeal line.’
