30-Year-Old Nigerian Man Jailed For Attacking Lady With Intent To Rape Her In UK
Jamel Nwokoye was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment on Friday, September 6, 2019, with an extended licence period of four years. He is also required to sign the sex offenders register for life.
According to the prosecutor, Shortly after 02:00hrs on 27 April 2018, Nwokoye began following a 28-year-old woman as she walked alone along Pitfield Street, Hackney.
As they reached the pedestrian entrance to Shoreditch Park, he ran up behind her and grabbed her hair, dragging her into the centre of the park.
The victim fought against Nwokoye but he responded by repeatedly punching and kicking her in the face and body, while continuing to pull her into the darkness.
Several members of the public overheard the woman’s screams and entered the park to try and find her, while also calling the police.
After several minutes, she managed to wrestle free and was able to run away, following which Nwokoye also fled the scene.
Detectives from the Met’s Central East CID began an investigation and extensive CCTV analysis showed Nwokoye as he began following the victim.
Analysis of his movements showed him wandering the surrounding area for 45 minutes and later led to identification of his home address where he was arrested on 2 May 2018.
He was later charged with assault to commit a sexual offence (rape). Analysis of his mobile phone also revealed an extensive history of accessing extreme pornographic material with specific themes of forced sex and violence towards women.
