Police are looking for three men aged 17-19 after a 12-year-old was raped in Walthamstow on Saturday night.

The attack happened around midnight on Hibbert Road, where the young girl was pinned down and raped by two of the men.

The victim described one of her attackers as a tall and skinny dark-skinned mixed race boy, who told her he was 17 and his name was Mo. He also had a diamond earring in his left ear. Her second attacker was described as being a black male.

The third man who did not rape her told the victim his name was Miles and was described as being black with a moustache.

The girl was raped in a garage of the street and the attack ended when the victim managed to call one of her friends who eventually came to the scene. The suspects then left shortly afterwards.

Detective Inspector Simon Ellershaw 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.

Police are appealing for any one who may know what happened to come forward with any information.
