Despite this rare burst of honesty, some in London still let political correctness guide them - as this report about an attempted abduction in Lambeth demonstrates:
The second case brought to my attention may just be a straight forward case of attempted rape, but it does include the element of a large number of males attempting to egg on a single attacker:
Police are hunting four teenagers who tried to kidnap a 15-year-old girl on a Gipsy Hill estate.
The girl was snatched on the Central Road estate by the youths who dragged her by her hair across the floor to a nearby empty address, before she was pushed on to the ground.
Police said the girl was taken by the youths against her will from outside the Upper Norwood Community Resource Association on the Central Road estate to a vacant property in Oakwood Drive.
She managed to escape and run from the property.
Now Brixton CID are looking for the youths who carried out the attack, which took place at approximately 2.30pm on July 13.
The youths are described as dark-skinned males aged about 16.
Police said one had a large afro hairstyle, and another had a black beard.
Anyone with information should call Brixton CID on 020 8649 2036.
A YOUNG woman walking alone in Easbrookend Country Park was sexually assaulted while her attacker's friends looked on laughing.
The 21-year-old was approached by four men, one of whom grabbed her, began to kiss her neck and tried to pull her clothes off.
His friends laughed as they watched the attack.
Fortunately for the young woman two dog walkers saw what was happening and ran over to chase the men off.
The rescuers then walked the shaken victim home.
Police are keen to trace the two men who came to the victim's aid as they may have vital information about the identity of the attacker.
The attacker is described as black, 21 to 23 years of age, about 5ft 11in tall and with his hair braided into tiny balls all over his head.
He was wearing a black T-shirt with a yellow smiley face on the front, dark tracksuit bottoms and trainers.
The attack took place in Eastbrookend Country Park, Dagenham Road, on Monday July 27 at about 9pm.
Witnesses or anyone with information should call Det Con Bob Hutton on 020 8217 5536 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
