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.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.

Awww Cleveland Police have just recruited these four legged friends

Published

on

Put your paws up for our two new recruits, Maggie and Skye who are the newest and youngest additions to the Force. At just 12 weeks old, the two English Springer Spaniels will soon begin their training to become Specialist Search Dogs.

Dog Trainer Constable Darren Gobie and Police Constable Chris Lambert are the lucky handlers of the pups. PC Lambert teamed up with a year 4 class at Myton Park School in Ingleby Barwick and allowed them to choose Skye’s name.

Chris and Skye will regularly visit the school over the next 18 months to allow them to follow her training process.

Speaking of the collaboration with the school, PC Lambert said: “I thought it would be a great idea to tie in with a school in the local community.

Recruiting new dogs is a huge deal and it’s an exciting and educational opportunity for the pupils to meet a police dog, choose her name collectively as a team and to better understand the training process for police dogs, and police roles in general.

The children were delighted to participate in this and I am sure they will all build a lovely bond with Skye over the coming months.”

PC Lambert, along with partner agencies will also be using the visits to the school to deliver lessons on internet safety and safety around animals.

The officers and the dogs will need to work very closely as team throughout the training process to build a special bond together.

Training is both mentally and physically challenging for both the dogs and handlers, as every programme must be passed to qualify.

Specialist dogs are used to detect a range of things with their highly developed sense of smell such as money, explosives, drugs and firearms.

They are also trained to work in public places including licenses premises to search for people in possession of narcotics.
