Schoolgirl, 12, is raped on the street by a pervert who was pretending to be a police officer who said he had to search her
A 12-year-old schoolgirl has been raped on the street by a pervert who was pretending to be a police officer who said he had to search her.
Detectives have arrested a 32-year-old suspect in connection with the attack after dark on Wednesday in Edmonton, North London, which saw the girl approached by a man riding a bike.
The individual told her that he was a policeman and that he had to search her because she fitted the description of a shoplifter who had just robbed a shop. He then pulled a knife before raping her.
Four girls, aged 11 to 14, were approached separately by the man as they walked to school on Monday. The suspect was described as black, of a medium build and with short black hair.
