Wigan and Leigh Magistrates' Court

Chloe Bradley, 19, appeared before Wigan and Leigh magistrates to face four charges which relate to events mainly in 2017 but also a further abduction earlier this month.

It is alleged that Bradley, of Montrose Avenue, Worsley Hall, that between August 19 and 20 in 2017 she “intentionally arranged or facilitated an act which you believed another person would do in any part of the world, namely St Helens, which would involve the commission of an offence under any of sections 9 to 13 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, namely the rape of a female under 13 years.

She faces two charges of removing both a boy and a girl under the age of 16 from the lawful control of their respective parents or guardians on August 20 2017 and one of kidnapping the same girl again on June 1 this year.

None of the children can be named, nor those from whose lawful control they are alleged to have been taken, for legal reasons.

Such is the seriousness of the allegations that the case was immediately committed to crown court and Bradley was remanded in custody.

She is due to make her first appearance before a Bolton judge on July 3.

We have been contacted by the family of a Pemberton 19-year-old called Chloe Bradley who has been wrongly identified by some people on social media as the subject of this article.

We would like to make it clear that the teenager from Pemberton, who is on Facebook as Chloe Louise Bradley, has nothing to do with this case and it is a coincidence that she shares the same name and age while living in the same area of Wigan as the defendant.
