Met Police are appealing for the public’s help in identifying three women and a man who spoke to a woman who reported that she was raped in a park in Brent.

Police have revealed that a woman reported that she had been raped in Neasden Recreation Ground on 31 July. The report was made on 2 August.

Police said via their website: “On Monday, 2 August it was reported to police that a 69-year-old woman had been raped in Neasden Recreation Ground.

“The rape is alleged to have occurred at about 18.30hrs on Saturday, 31 July.

“The 69-year-old woman is believed to have spoken to three women shortly afterwards who were at the outdoor gym at the time and a male jogger who was running in the park at the time.

“The jogger is described as black, in his 30s, and the females as being about 19 years of age. Two of the females were wearing hijabs and the other was short, wearing blue jeans and a black t-shirt.

“Detectives investigating this incident would like to trace and speak to these people as they may be key witnesses.

Detective Inspector Richard Lewsley said: “We would really like to speak to these four people as they spoke to the woman and they may have some key information to help this investigation.

“I would urge them, or anyone who was in Neasden Recreation Ground at around 6.30pm on 31 July, to come forward and contact police.”
