Teenager charged with rape of 11-year-old schoolgirl
PUBLISHED November 29, 2012
Opemipo Jaji is also accused of attempted rape following the incident in north London, on Friday.
The schoolgirl, who was wearing her uniform, had just got off a bus near her home when she was followed and then attacked in Jubilee Park in Enfield on Friday afternoon.
Sensing something was wrong, she had crossed the road to try and shake off the man who was pursuing her but he dragged her into the nearby park and sexually assaulted her close to a pitch and putt area.
The child, who police described as petite, returned home at around 8pm and was taken to hospital where she needed surgery.
Detective Inspector Simon Ellershaw of the Metropolitan Police branded it "a horrific and unusual attack of a defenceless schoolgirl" which may have lasted for up to two to three hours.
