On Twitter, someone commented on why there had been a long delay since the incident.
Richmond Police responded: “There are many reasons why it may not be appropriate to appeal.
“A few examples may be because the officer in the case is exploring other investigative options, the issue of consent or support from the victim, or other issues with a given investigation.”
If you know the details of any of these men, please contact the police by calling 101, on our website or to @metcc on twitter with reference to CRIS 0705617/21.
