Police are appealing for witnesses following an allegation of sexual assault in Greenwich Park.

Officers were called on the afternoon of Thursday, 8 January by a member of the public who reported sexual activity taking place in a toilet within the park, involving a teenage boy.

When they arrived at the scene, officers discovered the 15-year-old boy within the toilet block.

Two men, [A] aged 48 and [B] aged 53, were also present and were subsequently arrested on suspicion of sexual activity with a child. [B] was also arrested on suspicion of attempted rape.

Both men remain in custody at a south London police station.

Officers are appealing for anyone who was in the area, who may have seen a teenage boy with a small group of males to contact them.

Detectives from the Met's Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command are investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 0208 721 4653 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
