Detectives released a photograph today of a man accused of raping a woman after jumping on her from the ceiling of a nightclub toilet.

Officers want to trace Adebayo Omokayode Awosabya, 41, over the attack at the Amika nightclub in Kensington High Street, south west London.

The 19-year-old victim was using the toilet when the suspect lowered himself into the cubicle from an air vent in the ceiling.

Investigators believe he had been lying in wait for some time, watching through a metal grille for a victim.

There was a struggle during which the woman was assaulted and her clothes torn before she managed to escape into the busy nightclub.

Awosabya had been employed as a toilet attendant at the basement nightclub which is on the capital's celebrity circuit.

Among those to have visited the club are Prince Harry, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, Kelly Osbourne and pop star Rihanna.

The club is a favourite venue for celebrities holding album launch parties and has a members-only champagne lounge.

The suspect, also known as Andrew Olasebikan, is described as black, approximately 5ft 6in and of small build.

The attack took place at about midnight on Thursday, 3 July last year.
