Man charged after girl, 14, allegedly locked in Hatch End shop

A man has been charged with false imprisonment after allegedly locking a 14-year-old girl in a shop in Hatch End.

Back in November last year, police were called to Uxbridge Road following a report that a young girl had been locked in a shop.

Officers attended the scene and found that a 14-year-old girl had allegedly been locked in for around 10 minutes. The girl was not harmed.
