A teenager who raped and imprisoned a young woman in South London has been jailed for 5 years.
Tamoy Bailey, who was only 16 at the time of the attack, had met the woman earlier on the day of the incident and had invited her to an address in Peckham, South London.
When she arrived he locked her in the bathroom a court has heard.
He then verbally abused her before raping her. The court also heard that her threatened her with a knife and told her that he was going to stab her unless she had sex with him.
The woman managed to escape from the address after the attack and got to safety where she immediately called the police to report it.
Bailey was arrested on 2nd April in Peckham and subsequently charged with imprisonment and rape all relating to the victim.
He appeared in court on Tuesday where he was handed a 5 year jail sentence with a 2 year parole extension as he poses a threat to members of the general public.
He was also given 3 years to run concurrently for false imprisonment. Judge Donne addressed the Inner London Crown Court, saying “The victim pleaded with you stop, and you replied, ‘Do I look as if I care?’ This exemplified your attitude towards her.
You did not care about her, you wanted sex and were willing to do what was necessary to obtain it.” He also said that the defendant “posed a significant risk to the public.” Detective Constable Jake Good from the Metropolitan Police said “Bailey is a violent sexual offender and an ongoing risk to women. He was arrogant in the extreme and thought he could get away with raping this young woman. I hope this result and the sentencing brings her some degree of comfort. Importantly, I would like to recognise her dignity while confronting the trauma he put her through, in addition to the stress of the court proceedings.”
