Two Met PCs arrested after woman ‘beaten, kidnapped and raped’
Two serving Met police officers have been arrested after a woman reported being raped.
The officers, who were both in Met’s North West command and off duty at the time, have been suspended from duty following the arrests, Scotland Yard said.
The arrest come after a woman reported meeting two men at a nightclub in Kingston on Sunday April 30.
It is alleged they took her in a taxi against her will to a house in North London where she was raped.
She reported the incident and both unnamed PC’s were arrested.
One was arrested on suspicion of kidnap, rape and common assault.
Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) he was bailed to return on a date in June in relation to the rape.
The other charges were dropped.
A second PC was arrested on suspicion of kidnap and possession of class A drugs.
A third man – who is not a police officer – was arrested on suspicion of kidnap.
Both were released with no further action after consultation with the CPS.
The Met Police said: “The Directorate of Professional Standards has been informed and a referral has been made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.”
