Police appeal over sex attacks in central London

Jessica Geen July 28, 2009

Two men have been the victims of alleged sexual attacks after leaving the Heaven nightclub in Villiers Street, London.

The alleged attacks were said to have taken place in a car.

A man is in custody but police are now urging anyone else who has been a victim of a sexual attack in the area to come forward.

Detective inspector Jim Foley, of the Met Police’s Community Safety Unit, said: “We are concerned that they may not be isolated incidents and would like to hear from anyone who is concerned about being offered a lift home or being approached by an unlicensed mini cab.

“I would urge anyone who thinks they may have been a victim to come forward in confidence. We will work with you in a confidential and sensitive way and have specially trained officers who can support you and offer advice.

“Don’t suffer in silence. You will be taken seriously. I am interested in any information you may have – no matter how irrelevant you may think it is – so please call us.”

Men who think they may have been a victim, or anyone else with information, should call 020 7321 9434 as soon as possible or the anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
