MP’s Aide Arrested on Suspicion of Rape

A Tory MP’s aide has been arrested following an accusation of rape.

According to Metropolitan police the 23 year old male, an aide for Tory MP Craig Mackinlay, was arrested after the alleged attack occurred in the early hours of Friday morning in Westminster.

A spokesman for the Mr Mackinlay, MP for South Thanet, said:

“On Friday morning, Mr Mackinlay was made aware of an allegation against a member of his staff.

“Following a request made by the police and parliamentary services he granted full access to his Westminster office. Mr Mackinlay is currently awaiting further information from the police.”

Police officers were called to Westminster once the alleged victim spoke out. Officers have confirmed that the man has been released on bail until January as they carry out their investigation.

A Met spokesman said:

“Detectives from the sexual offences, exploitation and child abuse command are investigating an allegation of rape at the Houses of Parliament in the early hours of Friday 14 October.

“A 23-year-old man was arrested that same day on suspicion of rape. He has been bailed pending further inquiries to a date in mid-January 2017.”

Parliament is “working closely” with police, a spokesperson for the House of Commons said:

“We are aware of an incident on the parliamentary estate, which is being investigated by the Metropolitan police service. Parliament is working closely with the police on their investigation and we cannot comment further while this is ongoing.”
