A woman was raped at knife-point in her own home, police said.

The 27-year-old was walking home in Whitechapel, east London, after night out on Sunday, when she was attacked.

As she approached her flat she was grabbed from behind, bundled in and assaulted by the man who threatened her with a knife.

An e-fit of the man, who also took the woman's mobile phone, has been created. He is Asian, and described as being aged 23 or 24 and of stocky build.

He had short dark wavy hair, was clean-shaven and wore baggy black or grey jeans, a white T-shirt and a dark-coloured casual jacket.
