The incident took place on 6 March when a 18-year-old was attacked by a man whilst she waited at a bus stop on Beeston Road.

She was dragged from the bus stop into a nearby garden and struck over the head numerous times with a large stone before being seriously sexually assaulted.

She received serious head injuries and a fractured hip.

Detective Superintendent Nick Wallen, of West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: “The images show the man heading to the crime scene shortly before the attack. He is seen walking along Cemetery Road from the direction of Holbeck and the M621 motorway. He then turns right onto Beeston Road before approaching the victim.

“As with the footage we released of the attack, it is not of sufficient quality to identify him directly but it should help to build a more detail picture of this man and his movements in the moments leading up to the attack.

“I would ask that people look carefully at these images and put them together with the e-fit image, the previously released CCTV footage and the physical description we have given.

“One thing that stands out from the new footage is that the man has a very distinctive walk, possibly a limp.”

Police have already issued an e-fit of the suspect and also launched appeals to find people who may have been at the scene at the time of the incident.
