AN independent police watchdog will not investigate Thames Valley Police’s handling of two sex attacks.
The force called in the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) after a sexual assault in Beckley on Thursday, March 20, and an alleged rape near Watlington on Tuesday, April 29.
But the IPCC said Thames Valley Police will review how it investigated the reports.
Christian Perera, 30, has been charged with kidnap and rape following the incident near Watlington.
Perera, of Samphire Road in Blackbird Leys, appeared at Oxford Crown Court on Friday, May 9, and was remanded in custody to appear on Friday, July 25.
