15 Year Old Girl Raped in Bromley Park

Published

on

Police continue to appeal for witnesses and information, following the rape of a teenager in a Bromley Park.

Detectives from the Met’s Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command continue to lead the investigation.

On Sunday, 3 July, police received an allegation from a third party that a 15 year-old girl had been raped by a group of men in Church House Gardens, Bromley near a gazebo.

Officers attended the scene and spoke to the informant and the teenage girl.

Officers at the scene arrested two men, aged 21 and 22 near the park on suspicion of rape.

They have since both been bailed to return to police stations on dates in September.

Detectives have already spoken to a number of witnesses and continue to carry out an extensive CCTV trawl of the area.

It is thought that the victim was raped by two men, after up to four other men had left the park.

It is not known if all the men in the park were known to each other.

At this stage of the investigation the two suspects are described as black men. One was described as having ‘gold teeth’ and the other had a tattoo on his hand.

Detective Constable Andy Walker, investigating officer from the Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command said: “The investigation is moving at a fast pace and I would like to thank everyone who has come forward and spoken to the police so far, we continue to urge anyone with information, or anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious to come forward.

“This offence took place in a public place whilst there was still daylight, and I am confident that someone may have seen or heard something which could assist the investigation.”

“Understandably, the victim has been left highly distressed by this incident and specially trained officers are still in the process of fully gleaning all of the information and detail from her.

Chief Superintendent Christopher Hafford, Bromley Borough Commander said: “Thankfully incidents like this are very rare, and in Bromley in particular, which continues to be one of the safest boroughs in London and we continue to work with our partners to ensure it remains that way.

“My officers were first on the scene following the report to police and we continue to work alongside our colleagues from the Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command to support the investigation to bring to justice the persons who committed this offence.”

Any witnesses or anyone with information can contact the investigation team via 101. To give information anonymously Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111 or at crimestoppers-uk.org.
