My son has just turned 16 two days ago in the UK.
Yesterday 2 detectives turned up at 1645hrs Friday / said allegation made that my son raped a girl exactly 2 weeks ago and confiscated my sons phone. It’s now Saturday and I can’t contact solicitor and they have asked to interview him 1030hrs Monday at the Police Station. I have spoken with my son who said the first he knew about this was when it was put on Snapchat and people were gunning for him. He contacted the girl who said no it didn’t happen in writing on his phone text. He copied this to his best mate to reassure him and today I have the copy screenshots confirming the conversation with his accuser that no sex happened. Why would the Police come to our house to accuse my son when they should have found out this information from the accusers phone? Or simply asked to check my sons phone? We feel as parents totally exhausted and supposed to be going on holiday Monday when we have to attend the Police Station. Can we simply not turn up and go on holiday instead?
