Teenagers in court on rape charge
Two teenagers have appeared in court charged with the rape of a 12-year-old girl.
One of the 17-year-olds was remanded in custody and the other given bail with conditions, Scotland Yard said.
Both will appear next at Snaresbrook Crown Court on August 21, a spokesman said.
The teenagers, who appeared at Thames Magistrates' Court in Bow, east London, cannot be named, for legal reasons.
The girl was allegedly targeted by three young men who took her to a garage area in Hibbert Road, Walthamstow, east London, at around 12.15am last Saturday.
She is said to have been raped by two of them, before calling a friend who came to help.
