Detectives in Ealing are appealing to gay men who have been befriended in Soho and assaulted or robbed either nearby or outside of central London.

It follows an incident earlier this year when a man was allegedly robbed in Ealing after meeting a man in WC2.

Acting Detective Inspector Nick Doherty said: "If you have been a victim to this type of crime and it has previously gone unreported, I urge you to come forward and tell police. I believe they may be victims within the gay community who have been targeted and subjected to these attacks and I am determined to bring the person responsible to justice"

If you are or know of anyone who has been a victim of this type of crime, please contact Ealing CID on 020 8721 7050 / 07824 598 361 or 101.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. Please quote reference 2505191/13.

All calls are treated confidentially and with the utmost sensitivity.
