Girl blindfolded by sex attackers

A schoolgirl was blindfolded before being sexually assaulted by a gang of men on Tuesday.

Police said the 13-year-old was talking to the four men on the 253 bus towards Hackney when they forced her off at a stop near Clapton Common, east London.

A bandana was put over her eyes and she was led away before being attacked by the men who are described as black and aged about 18.   The girl was returned to the stop, her blindfold was removed and the men left.

Detective Inspector Daniel Smith said: "This was a horrendous assault on a vulnerable young girl who was travelling home from school.

"We are certain that someone must have seen the group of four males on the bus and then later as they led this blindfolded teenage girl to an unknown location.

"We urge anyone with information to come forward as soon as possible."
