Police are looking for three men after a 12-year-old girl was “brutally” raped in London.
The girl was lured to a garage area at the end of Hibbert Road/Theydon Street in Walthamstow, east London, where she was pinned down and raped by two of the men, who are thought to be aged between 17 and 19.
The suspects left the area after the girl managed to call a friend who came to the scene and took her away.
Scotland Yard said the girl met the three men between 12.15am and 12.30am on July 27.
Detective Inspector Simon Ellershaw, who is leading the investigation, said: “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.”
