Three teenagers, including a brother and sister, have been convicted today of being involved of the rape of a teenager in Willesden in revenge for “snitching”.
Aliyah Weekes, 19, of St Mary’s Road, Harlesden and her 17-year-old friend, forced the girl into being raped by her brother Lacquan Weekes in an alleyway next to the College of North West London in Dudden Hill Lane.
The Old Bailey heard the 15-year-old girl was forced to give Lacquan, 18, oral sex because she had disclosed information Aliyah had told her in confidence.
The victim managed to escape when they interrupted by members of the public.
Lacquan was interrupted by members of the public and the victim managed to get away before she was further attacked.

Aliyah and the second girl were convicted aiding and abetting rape and her brother was found guilty of rape.
The siblings have been remanded in custody and the second girl was bailed until their sentencing on October 17.
DC Daniel Pegg, investigating officer, said: “This was a disgraceful attack during which the victim was surrounded, accused of betraying confidence, assaulted and then threatened with further violence if she did not comply with their demands.
“I would like to pay tribute to the victim for her bravery in giving evidence. I hope the sentences handed out will reflect the serious nature of this incident and dissuade others from committing such offences.”
