London police say a complaint came in on Friday regarding four different incidents that took place between July 2019 and January 2020.
“A man in his fifties was arrested on Saturday, August 1 on suspicion of rape and is currently in custody in a police station in east London,” said a police statement. The man was later released on bail.
“We take all allegations of this nature very seriously,” a Conservative Party spokesman commented in the British media. “As this matter is currently in the hands of the police, it would not be appropriate to comment further.”
