BREAKING NEWS: Man arrested over Central Park reported rape

A MAN has been arrested following a reported rape in an East Ham park at lunchtime last Tuesday (September 28).

The 22-year-old remained in police custody this morning but no charges had been brought.

A 21-year-old woman claims she was attacked in Central Park’s toilet block (pictured) at around 12.30pm.

Part of the Park off High Street South was cordoned off last week as forensic officers combed the area for clues to determine the identity of the attacker.
