At around 12.15am on Saturday, three men coaxed the girl into following them into a secluded garage area at the end of Hibbert Road in Walthamstow, where two of them pinned her down and raped her.
The first was dark-skinned and of mixed race, with a diamond stud in his left ear and a London accent, said Scotland Yard. He told the girl his name was Mo and that he was 17.
He had big brown eyes, short hair, was very skinny and wore a black puffa-style jacket with a hood, black chinos, black trainers and a grey/black T-shirt.
The second was described as black and very tall with big lips. His hair was partly shaven and he wore black trousers and a red and blue shirt.The third, who did not rape the girl, was black and had a moustache. He wore a blue-coloured hooded top and a red and blue cap, and told her his name was Miles.
Detective Inspector Simon Ellershaw, who is leading the investigation, said: “This was a very nasty attack on a vulnerable girl just 12 years old. I would appeal for anyone with information or any witnesses to please contact police as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0208 217 7408 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
