A 40-Year-Old British Man Is Arrested At Heathrow

A British man has been arrested after a fellow passenger claimed she was raped in the first-class cabin on a transatlantic overnight flight.

The alleged victim, also British, claims she was attacked while others slept on the flight from Newark, New Jersey to London’s Heathrow airport.

According to a newspaper outlet she complained to the cabin crew of the United Airlines flight saying a man had forced her to have sex with him.

Cabin crew called ahead to London police to report the incident, and Metropolitan Police officers boarded the aircraft to arrest a 40-year-old man after it landed at the airport’s Terminal 2 around 6.30 am on Monday last week.

The woman, also 40, was taken by police to a rape counselling facility and was interviewed by officers who specialise in rape cases.

Meanwhile, officers executed a search of the luxury cabin while the man, who was arrested on suspicion of rape and was taken into custody at Heathrow police station.

A newspaper outlet said that the arrest and investigation were confirmed by a spokesman for the Metropolitan police.

According to the newspaper, sources said the two people were sitting in separate rows in the cabin, in which return flight tickets cost as much as £3,000.

They seemed to be strangers, but during the flight had been talking with each other and drinking together at the bar in the cabin’s lounge, and the source said the parties were seemingly unknown to each other beforehand but had evidently been seen talking to each other and drinking during the flight.

Speaking to a newspaper outlet, the source praised the police for taking the woman’s accusation seriously and confirmed officers had examined the area on the aircraft the apparent attack had taken place.

However, why didn’t this woman resist or shout for assistance? Someone would have heard her. This doesn’t make any sense at all, although we shouldn’t condemn the victim because we have no notion of what actually transpired.

The fellow passenger will definitely have a field day with this. No fighting, no screaming, people all around and you only open your mouth about it afterwards? Although they had both been drinking and he could have easily have overpowered her if she’d had too much to drink.

Anything is feasible and hopefully, the police will investigate this incident so they can get to the truth, but quite frankly that’s not the Mile High Club that you want.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
