Description

Raphael Fakoya, 35, was jailed for nine years on May 13 after he was found guilty of numerous sexual offences.

The assault occurred in February 2022 at Fakoya's home, with a woman who he knew.

Fakoya will be on the sex offenders register for life.

Following a hearing at Croydon Crown Court on January 24, Fakoya, from Beatrice Avenue, SW16, was declared a serious risk to women.

He plead guilty to three counts of rape, two counts of assault by penetration, and one count of sexual assault.

Detective Constable Jo Cheung who led the investigation to convict Fakoya said: “I hope this conviction and sentencing reinforces the message that the Met is committed to investigating sexual offences and ensuring those who commit such acts are put before the courts to be held to account for their actions.

“The women who Fakoya attacked put her trust in us to listen and support her through this ordeal. We have investigated her claims and now a dangerous sexual predator is being bars.

“I would urge anyone who has been subjected to sexual abuse to speak to police so you can be supported and any allegations investigated.”
