    The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) said the investigation followed a conduct referral from the Metropolitan Police (MPS) in relation to two officers, received on Wednesday.


    The watchdog said the referral was linked to another four, "all connected to the arrest of a serving MPS officer on suspicion of kidnap, murder and a separate allegation of indecent exposure".

    In a statement, the IOPC said: "Our investigation will look at the actions of the MPS after police received a report on February 28 that a man had exposed himself at a fast food restaurant in South London.

    "On Wednesday we determined that two conduct referrals relating to kidnap/murder and indecent exposure allegations against the arrested officer should remain under local investigation by the force.

    BBM - two officers? What the hell! <modsnip: Do not mention or discuss rumors>

    May relate to how they handled the incident reporting. Hope they didn’t brush it off/attempt to protect ‘one of their own’ JMO

    He has also been arrested on suspicion of an indecent exposure involving another woman, and this is the incident that will be investigated by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

    The IOPC said in a statement: “The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has started an independent investigation into whether Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) officers responded appropriately to a report of indecent exposure.

    “The IOPC’s investigation follows a conduct referral from the MPS in relation to two officers, received last night, which is linked to four other referrals. They are all connected to the arrest of a serving MPS officer on suspicion of kidnap, murder and a separate allegation of indecent exposure.

    The IOPC said that two referrals about the conduct of the arrested officer, who was held at his home in Deal on Tuesday, should remain under investigation by Scotland Yard.

    A fifth mandatory referral is also being assessed after it emerged that the arrested officer had sustained a head injury in custody on Wednesday which required hospital treatment.

    A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Following the arrest of a police officer, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) made two referrals, one mandatory and one voluntary, to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

    Same story in Evening Standard. So EC has been released on bail and WC will be held in custody longer. Please ignore the upload at the bottom - it was accidental!

    "Detectives have been granted more time to hold the officer in custody before making a decision on whether to charge him after an application to extend his detention was granted at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court.

    A woman aged in her 30s, who was arrested at the same time on suspicion of assisting an offender, has been released on bail to return to a police station on a date in mid-April."

    It’s possible, but I personally think it happened extremely fast and he perhaps didn’t even say a word to her before his attack, presumably from behind.

    it doesn't say if they knew it was him who had flashed on 28 Feb or whether they just had a description of a man who they did not know was him. If it is like a lot of flashers , do they really take those things that seriously ? do they have the resources to look into those in any great depth when there are numerous other serious crimes in London atm like the many stabbings?

    Yes I understood it as two officers. I do hope the other officer is being closely watched now.

    Police watchdog probes Met officers response to indecent exposure claim against Sarah Everard murder suspect

    The police watchdog has launched an independent investigation into whether Metropolitan Police officers responded appropriately to an allegation of indecent exposure made against the suspect held over Sarah Everard's disappearance.

    The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) said the investigation followed a conduct referral from the Metropolitan Police (MPS) in relation to two officers, received on Wednesday.

    The watchdog said the referral was linked to another four, "all connected to the arrest of a serving MPS officer on suspicion of kidnap, murder and a separate allegation of indecent exposure".

    In a statement, the IOPC said: "Our investigation will look at the actions of the MPS after police received a report on February 28 that a man had exposed himself at a fast food restaurant in South London.

    "On Wednesday we determined that two conduct referrals relating to kidnap/murder and indecent exposure allegations against the arrested officer should remain under local investigation by the force.

    "We are still assessing a mandatory referral in relation to the actions of police after they received a report that Sarah Everard was missing."

    The IOPC added a mandatory referral was received from the Met on Thursday in relation to police contact with the arrested officer who was treated in hospital after sustaining a head injury while in custody on Wednesday, which is being assessed to determine what further action may be required.

    The Met Police said it had made a voluntary referral to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) “for a conduct matter in relation to the police investigation into the separate allegations of indecent exposure”, which is being investigated by the watchdog.

    The force also made a mandatory referral to the IOPC over the “actions of police” after Sarah Everard was reported missing.

    Another mandatory referral has been made by the force over the arrested man being taken to hospital for treatment to a head wound sustained in custody.

    The Met said the suspect was “being monitored by CCTV and received immediate first aid” and they await the IOPC’s assessment.

    The Met Police also confirmed it had made two referrals – one voluntary and one mandatory – to the IOPC “linked to the conduct of the officer arrested on suspicion of kidnap, murder and indecent exposure,” which are being investigated locally.

    The force said it was “offering every assistance” to the IOPC.

    I think re the sun article about 2 coppers - it might mean the copper who flashed (WC) and the copper who failed to act appropriately on the report rather than 2 coppers being investigated for flashing. Not sure about the 4 other referrals though.

    My other thought - is there any possibility that fast food restaurant referred to is the cabin frequented by police that Sarah passed by on her route home??

    Have been lurking but just joined to comment and this is my first post. A member called Mersault posted this on the night of the arrest about a street blocked off by LE in Oval (sorry don't know how to link this properly):
    Fentiman Road is closed by police cordon and looks serious, two miles away - no suggestion that it’s linked though

    Good God!
    What does this mean in plain English?
    From your link
    “The IOPC’s investigation follows a conduct referral from the MPS in relation to two officers, received last night, which is linked to four other referrals. They are all connected to the arrest of a serving MPS officer on suspicion of kidnap, murder and a separate allegation of indecent exposure.

    Glad to see others like Officer Dibble have mentioned Leah Croucher ...

    Despite her having a lover with a wife and family, maybe just maybe another person altogether caused her disappearance. Do we know if WC had any links to Milton Keynes ?

    If he felt any remorse he also wouldn't have abused and disposed of her body after killing her and then gone on with his life as if nothing happened. Assuming that's what he did. Imo

    The other could be an officer who was tasked to assess/investigate the case.

    I think this is a better explanation than suicide attempt although that is possible too. Given he has been caught when he probably did not think he would, the realisation of what that means to him/his family, if convicted of SE’s murder and given he is a police officer...the prospect of jail and how he will be treated is probably dawning on him, he has lost any control/power he had...everything is imploding, he is caged and on the other side of the bars than he usually would be and thinks he should be....I think the head banging is anger / frustration, especially if he is coming down too from any steroids if those were something he took.

    “The IOPC’s investigation follows a conduct referral from the MPS in relation to two officers, received last night, which is linked to four other referrals”


    So I take this to mean they are looking at the two officers who took the report or were supposed to investigate it, whether they handled it properly.. my opinion would be no due to the fact he was still working!! :mad: <modsnip>

    I would be too scared to take a photo if someone flashed me, moo. Would SE realistically have taken a photo?

    I am wondering he headbutted her that got her in the car as she stumbled. Moo.

    I read this as the referral was in regard to the conduct of two officers (ie the two officers investigating the indecent exposure didn’t do it properly), not that there were two officers involved in the IE.
