Former west London police officer charged with rape

A retired Metropolitan Police officer who was stationed in west London has been charged with rape, attempted rape and indecent assault. Former PC Stephen Kyere, 53, will appear at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, (1 February).

The charges relate to an incident in Teddington in April 2004 when the officer, then attached to Hammersmith and Fulham police, was off duty. Former PC Kyere was charged in January 2022 following an investigation by officers at the South West Command Unit.

He retired from the Met on 19 March 2021. The Met said misconduct matters will be considered following the criminal process.

The force added that specialist officers are providing support to the victim involved in the allegation, saying this will continue during and following the court process.
