Man Jailed for Raping Elderly Pensioner


A 21-year-old man has been jailed for 12 years for raping an elderly pensioner in central London.


Shakur Valentino, 21, of no fixed address pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court on March 18 of two counts of rape, kidnapping, actual bodily harm, and two counts of sexual assaults.

He was sentenced at the same court last Thursday.

The victim  was attacked and raped by Valentino as she walked to a bus stop after finishing cleaning jobs in central London at round 3.30am on Monday, February 4.

Valentino had followed her down Haymarket and then dragged her into St Albans Street, where the attack took place.

Officers arrested Valentino near to the scene after police were called by a witness. He was taken into police custody and charged the next day.
