He then took her back to his address which police believe was somewhere in the nearby North Laine area, where she was raped.

The man is described as English, white, tall and slim, and has some ability to speak Spanish and Italian.

Detective Constable Suzy MacLintock of the Brighton Safeguarding Investigations Unit said: “Our enquiries began immediately this was reported to us on the same day and although there have been some difficulties in engaging with and supporting the victim, who returned home to Spain at the end of her English language course later the same month, we have found images of this man who we believe may be responsible.

“If you think you recognise him, please get in touch with us either online or by calling 101, quoting serial 900 of 22/07.”
