A man has been jailed for violently assaulting and raping a woman after she managed to flee his Dagenham home.

Oladip Oshodi raped the victim and beat her in his house in Mayesbrook on Tuesday, 11 July last year.

The 48-year-old had made sexual advances toward the woman, who was known to him, earlier on that night. The victim had clearly stated at this point that she did not want to have sex with Oshodi.

Despite the victim clearly stating this, he raped her twice during the course of the night.

She managed to escape by jumping from a ground floor window onto the street but then collapsed in the middle of the road.

Concerned members of the public called police and carried her off the road to safety.

She was taken to hospital for treatment and was supported by specialist officers.

Oshodi was arrested the next day and was remanded in custody throughout proceedings.

On Friday, 10 May this year, he was convicted of all counts.

The suspect appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday, 5 July where he was sentenced to 25 years’ imprisonment for two counts of rape, administering a noxious substance, threats to kill, grievous bodily harm and controlling coercive behaviour.

Detective Constable Serena McGhee said: “Oshodi is a dangerous man and it is right that he will now serve a long sentence in a place where he will not pose a threat to women. I commend the bravery of the victim and the witnesses in this case.

“Oshodi showed no remorse throughout the investigation and trial, and I am pleased that he has been made to face the consequences of his actions.”

PC Kayleigh Grafton, who is a specialist officer dealing with victims of sexual offences, said: “The survivor in this case was fleeing for her life when she jumped onto the street to escape this man.

“I hope that the sentence handed down encourages other women who have been the victim of sexual offences to come forward. We are here to support you and our mission is to keep you safe and support you every step of the way.”
