CCTV appeal after rape in Covent Garden

Police investigating the rape of a woman have released CCTV footage of three men they are anxious to trace. They are all described as being of Asian appearance (pictured).

The incident happened at 00:17 hours on Monday, 20 March in Slingsby Place, WC2. The victim, a 34-year-old woman, had been out with friends earlier in the evening. Having left them, she was in Greek Street WC2 when she was approached by three men.

One held her hand and led her through the area with the other two following at a short distance behind. The men led her to a secluded area of Slingsby Place WC2 where at least two of them raped her.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Ben Lucas, from the Met’s Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, said, “This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim who naturally remains extremely distressed by what happened.

“We have released footage of the suspects in Greek Street in the hope someone will recognise them or saw them that night. If you have any information please come forward.”
