A woman collapsed in the street after jumping out of a window to escape a violent predator who had raped her twice.

Oladip Oshodi, 48, had made sexual advances towards a woman at his home in the Mayesbrook area of Dagenham on the evening of July 11 last year.

The woman told him that she did not want to have sex, but Oshodi proceeded to rape her twice during the course of the night.

He subsequently started to beat her, and she was only able to escape after jumping from a ground floor window.

She then collapsed in the middle of the road, where concerned onlookers called the police and carried her to safety.

The woman was rushed to hospital so she could receive treatment for her injuries.

Oshodi was arrested by police the next day, and remanded in custody throughout court proceedings.

He was convicted of two counts of rape, administering a noxious substance, threats to kill, grievous bodily harm and controlling coercive behaviour on May 10.

On Friday (July 5), Oshodi was jailed for 25 years at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

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 sexual offence victims officer, added that she hoped Oshodi’s sentence would help encourage other victims of sexual offences to come forward.
