Man charged with rape of teenage girl in Peckham

A man has been charged with the rape of a 15-year-old girl in Peckham on Sunday, January 30.

Abioina Dele Lawal, 32 (23.09.89), of no fixed address, was charged and remanded to appear in custody at Croydon Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, February 3. He will next appear at Inner London Crown Court on March 3.

On Sunday (January 30), the girl was walking past McDonalds on Rye Lane. A man started speaking to her, taking her along Elm Grove and to a small green area between Elm Grove and Bellenden Road, where he reportedly raped her. The attack was reported to police at about 6.30pm that evening.

Police said the girl is being supported by specialist officers.

This attack is unconnected to the rape that was originally reported in Peckham earlier in January – but did not actually take place there.
