Former Tory minister arrested for rape over ‘sex attack on woman in her 20s’

A FORMER Tory minister has been arrested on suspicion of rape after a woman in her 20s made a series of allegations to police.

The MP was taken into custody early on Saturday.

He remained at an east London police station into the afternoon.

The complainant, a former parliamentary employee, accuses him of abuse during a relationship last year, The Times reports.

She alleges that the MP assaulted her, forced her to have sex and left her so traumatised that she had to go to hospital.

The Met Police say they had launched an investigation into a report of rape, sexual assault and coercive control.

A spokesperson said: “On Friday, July 31, the Metropolitan Police Service received allegations relating to four separate incidents involving allegations of sexual offences and assault.

“These offences are alleged to have occurred at addresses in Westminster, Lambeth and Hackney between July 2019 and January 2020.

“The Met has launched an investigation into the allegations.

"A man was arrested on suspicion of rape and is currently in custody in an east London police station.”
