The woman was attacked in Talfourd Place by two men wearing crash helmets, police said
A man has been charged with child destruction and causing grievous bodily harm with intent following an attack on a heavily-pregnant woman.
The 21-year-old, who was 32 weeks pregnant, was attacked by two men wearing crash helmets in Peckham, south London, on Monday evening.
Kevin Wilson, 20, of Stansfield House, Longfield Estate, south-east London, is due in court later.
The woman waited more than an hour for an ambulance that never arrived.
She was eventually taken to hospital by police after a 70-minute wait but lost her baby. The London Ambulance Service issued an apology for no ambulance reaching her.
Mr Wilson is due to appear at Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court.
