#AceNewsReport – Feb.06: The sentencing comes after he was convicted at the same court on Thursday, 6 May.
#AceDailyNews Court Report: Rapist Abdallah Baballah, 26 (16.01.96) of no fixed address, appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Thursday, 3 February where he was jailed for three counts of rape, three counts of robbery, attempted rape, sexual assault and threats to kill.
Baballah had pleaded guilty to rape, attempted rape, actual bodily harm and robbery on 24 September 2019 with a further guilty plea of robbery on 18 February 2020 before the trial.
COURT CASE NOTES:
The court heard that Baballah followed each of his victims into quiet residential streets as they walked home alone late at night.
He threatened each of the women, claiming he had a knife. Baballah raped two of his victims and seriously assaulted three of them, robbing them of their belongings before making off.
On 25 July 2019, officers on patrol in Newham saw Baballah walking along Barking Road at around 23:00hrs.
Recognising him from the CCTV images, they detained and arrested him and he was taken into custody where he was found to have one of the women’s mobile phones in his possession.
The phone was also found to have been used to view a number of news articles about Baballah and to download CCTV images of him released in the media.
Officers used forensic evidence to match Ballabah to a number of the offences, while identifying – from three Oyster cards found in his possession upon arrest – that he had been in the vicinity of the attacks close to the times they took place.
He was charged with multiple offences including rape, attempted rape and robbery on 27 July 2020 and remanded in custody.
Detective Sergeant Sara Yems, of the Specialist Crime Command, said:
” Baballah is an extremely dangerous offender who targeted these women as they walked home alone in the dark. He waited for the most opportune of moments before making his attack and his actions have left these women traumatised by what happened to them.
“I would like to thank them for coming forward and supporting the police investigation, and for providing crucial evidence which led to this conviction and has ensured Baballah cannot subject anyone else to such horrific attacks.
“I hope this result and lengthy prison sentence reassures our local community that we will not tolerate sexual assault and violence. Victims of abuse and sexual violence should feel confident that their local officers will work tirelessly to seek justice.
“We fully appreciate how recent events have heightened concerns about violence amongst women in London. We share that concern. The Met is absolutely committed to doing everything we can to keep women and girls safe, and to ensure they feel safe.
“Working with our partners across the criminal justice system, we are determined to bring offenders to justice.

We have specially trained officers who will help and support you.”
