Detectives investigating the rape of a woman in Shepherds Bush have charged a man.
Salad Ahmed Mohamed, 36, was charged with one count of rape on Wednesday 13 April.
He was kept in custody and appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 14 April.
He has been remanded in custody to appear at Crown Court on a date and court to be arranged.
The charges follow an incident that was reported to have happened on Thursday 7 April in Wormwood Scrubs, W12.
A woman reported she had been assaulted in a vehicle and police appealed for the public’s help.
Reports from The Independent suggested that the driver may have been posing as a private hire driver to gain a false sense of trust at the time of the incident.
