A YOUNG woman has allegedly been raped in a rundown Belsize Park flat, the Ham&High has learned.
An incident involving a 23-year-old victim is alleged to have occurred in the early hours of Saturday in a grubby basement flat in Fellows Road.
Police are so far revealing little about the incident other than to say they are investigating an alleged sexual assault.
But the Ham&High understands the victim was picked up after visiting a nightclub and taken to the flat.

One resident, who asked not to be named, said: "So many police vehicles have turned up since Saturday. They have just said they are investigating a very serious crime.
"The flat seemed to be occupied by young men but I could never work out how many of them lived there. It was an awful flat and stank of urine."
The flat has since been boarded up.
A Camden Police spokeswoman said the incident was being dealt with by the serious crime department. No arrests have been made and inquiries continue.
