No further police action on Eltham 'kidnap and rape' rumours
AN ELTHAM incident which sparked online rumours of abduction and rape is no longer being investigated by police.
News of the alleged incident had circulated on Facebook, with claims that a girl had been abducted, raped and dumped at the Yorkshire Grey McDonald's by three balaclava-clad men in a transit van.
It is understood that a police cordon in Foxhole Road was linked to the subsequent investigation.
But a spokeswoman for Greenwich police said: "We can confirm that officers from Sapphire were investigating an allegation of rape that was made to police on September 4.
"Following the information received and a full investigation, the case is now closed."
