A teenage boy has been charged in connection to an attack that saw two boys forced to fight, steal and one perform a sex act on the other.

A 14-year-old boy from South London has been charged with two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and two counts of kidnap.

He is due to appear in custody at Camberwell Youth Court on Saturday.

Two boys informed police after they say they were forced off the top deck of a 133 bus from Brixton on 11 February by a male individual who allegedly intimated he possessed a knife.

After the two teenagers exited the bus near Elephant and Castle, they were forced to fight and steal from a nearby shop.

Their attacker then reportedly took them to a stairwell in a block of flats where one was made to perform a sex act on the other. This individual then allegedly walked away in an unknown direction.

The incident was described by police, who issued an appeal for more information this week, as a “most unusual crime and distressing crime”.
