In response, Conservative councillor Shaun Slator stated “More likely that it’s a punter that didn’t pay”.

The comment has attracted much criticism including from Labour councillors in Bromley:

The comment was made despite minimal information so far given by police.

Investigations continue into the rape which was reported to police at 4am on 30th December.

Slator has recently been tweeted campaigning for the Tories alongside MP Bob Neill.

Police tapped off a large area of greenery for much of the day on 30th December following the report of rape.

Villas Road runs from Plumstead Road up past the college, railway line then towards Ragland Road alongside the Glyndon Estate.
