A man has been arrested today in connection with an alleged rape in Edgware earlier this month.

The victim, a man in his 20s on his way home from a night out, was approached outside Edgware underground station shortly before 1am on Wednesday September 6th. A man began talking to him before allegedly raping him in a nearby car park. 

The police released images and CCTV footage of the man they wanted to speak to in connection with the incident. This resulted in the arrest of a 31-year-old man in Hendon earlier today. He was taken in for questioning and remains in custody.
