A sex attacker who told his victim "I want to kill all women" - before apologising and offering her his phone to call police - has been jailed for eight years.
Sudanese national Khalid Abdullah tried to rape the woman while she was walking to work along Star Road, Peterborough, on April 13.
He threatened her with a weapon before dragging her to an alleyway and pushing her against a building.
Abdullah then apologised and even offered the victim his phone to call police before she escaped.
Detectives from Cambridgeshire Police trawled CCTV and identified Abdullah. He was arrested the following day and charged.
Abdullah was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court today.
