Scotland Yard detectives have condemned a "very nasty attack" after charging two 17-year-olds with the rape of a 12-year-old girl.
This was a very nasty attack on a vulnerable girl just 12 years old by a group of older males who engaged her in conversation before leading her to a secluded area. She was pinned down and two of the males then brutally raped her.
– Detective Inspector Simon Ellershaw
The two suspects were arrested on Thursday and will appear in court later today.
