A 13-year-old girl has been raped in Dagenham, east London.
Specialist detectives are appealing for information after the victim was grabbed from behind and dragged onto a grassland area in Eleanor Gardens where she was subjected to a sex attack on Saturday, November 30 at about 9pm.

Detectives from the Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command (SC02) have said they are looking for a suspect described as a tall, slim white man with stubble or facial hair.
The victim has been receiving treatment at a Haven facility — a specialist centre for people who have been raped or sexually assaulted.
