Four Teens Arrested over Sexual Assault in Hurlingham Park
Boys aged 13 - 15 bailed pending further enquiries into attack on 14 year-old girl
Four teenage boys have been arrested on suspicion of rape after a 14 year-old girl was sexually assaulted in Hurlingham Park.
The teenagers - aged 13, 14 and two aged 15 - attended south London police stations on July 8 and were arrested. They have been bailed pending further enquiries to a date in mid-September.
Earlier, officers from the Met's Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse (SOECA) Command appealed for witnesses to the serious sexual offence.
On Thursday, 19 February between 4.30pm and 5pm the 14-year-old schoolgirl was on her way home when four boys approached her near Hurlingham Park.
As she walked along Hurlingham Road the four boys began pestering her and asking her questions of a sexual nature. The four teens then followed her into Hurlingham Park. As she got near to the rugby shed in the park, two of teenagers forced her to perform a sex act, whilst the other two boys filmed it on their mobile phones. The boys then left the area and the victim went home and reported it to a family member, who called police.
Police say enquiries continue.
