The law court heard that shortly after 02:00hrs on 27th April 2018, Nwokoye began following a 28-year-old woman as she walked alone on Pitfield Street, Hackney.

As they reached the pedestrian entrance towards Shoreditch Park, Jamel Nwokoye ran up behind her and pulled her hair, dragging her into the centre of the park.

The lady fought against Nwokoye but he responded by punching and kicking her in the face and body repeatedly while continuing to pull her into the darkness.

Some members of the public overheard the woman’s cry and entered the park while trying to find her, they also called the police. o try and find her, while also calling the police.

After several minutes, she managed to wrestle herself free from his arms and was able to run away, after which Nwokoye also fled the scene.

Detectives from the Met’s Central East CID started an investigation and extensive CCTV analysis showed Jamel Nwokoye as he began following the victim.

The Analysis of his movements showed him wandering the area for 45 minutes which later led to the identification of his home address after which he was arrested on 2 May 2018.

Nwokoye was later charged with assault to commit a sexual offence (rape).

The analysis of his mobile phone revealed an extensive history of accessing adult content and extreme pornographic material filled with specific themes of forced sex and violence towards women.

In his sentencing remarks, HHJ Dodds stated that Jamel Nwokoye was sentenced to prison on the basis that the sexual offence which he was intending to commit was rape.

The lader of the investigation, Detective Constable Mark Longley said:

“Nwokoye is a sexual predator and the CCTV footage demonstrates that he was prowling the streets of Hackney in the early hours of the morning before he alighted on his victim.

“He subjected her to a truly terrifying ordeal which has caused lasting psychological harm. I hope that with the conclusion of this case she is now able to move forward with her life.

“This case also raises legitimate questions about the availability of so called ‘rape porn’ and the extent to which this may have contributed to Nwokoye’s offending.

“This is commercially produced material which is specifically themed to depict forced sex and violence towards women. It is notable that Nwokoye was accessing this material in the days leading up to this incident some of which bore striking similarities to the assault he would eventually commit.”
