A man who attacked and raped a woman in the street has been jailed for seven years at Woolwich Crown Court today.
Steven Dunne from Peckham pleaded guilty in March to one count of rape and one count of robbery following the attack last November.
The victim, a 27-year-old woman, was walking to work along Surrey Quays Road when she realised she was being followed. Dunne suddenly rushed at the woman and grabbed her, forcing her into nearby bushes where he assaulted her and robbed her of cash. He also threatened to kill her during the ordeal.
PC Carol Day who led the investigation said:
"Steven Dunne committed a violent and terrifying rape on a woman walking to her workplace in the early hours of the morning. The victim in this case was traumatised by the attack, but with support has found the determination to see her attacker sent to prison for a long time."
