A man has been jailed for 11 years for the rape and kidnap of a 13-year-old girl in Southwark.

Omieke Glenn, 22 (20.10.95), of Monteagle Way, Southwark was sentenced to 11 years’ imprisonment on Thursday, 5 July at Inner London Crown Court.

Due to the seriousness of the offence he will serve a further five years on licence.

Glenn was also served with a Sexual Harm Prevention Order and placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely.

He was found guilty at the same court on Wednesday, 6 June of two counts of rape of a 13-year-old girl and one count of kidnap.

The court heard that at around 19:15hrs on 6 May 2017, the victim was making her way to her friend’s house when she was attacked by Glenn on Copeland Road in Southwark.

Glenn grabbed her and threatened to harm her if she did not do as he said.

He then raped her on the porch outside the address whilst filming the attack on his mobile phone. He further raped the victim prior to being interrupted by the victim’s friends who had come to find her.

The victim immediately reported the incident to officers at a south London police station.

Glenn was arrested on 7 May 2017 at his home address and charged on 1 December 2017.

He was identified following an ID parade and further linked to the incident through forensic evidence.

Detective Constable Amy Beautridge, of the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command (CASO), said: “The young victim has shown immense courage from the start by coming forward and telling police about the abuse she suffered at the hands of Glenn.

“She has assisted the investigation throughout which has helped to ensure that her attacker has been brought to justice. I hope that this sentencing result brings some closure for the victim so she can move forward with her life.”

Detective Inspector Colin Archer, also of CASO, said: “Glenn has been exposed as a highly dangerous individual who had a callous disregard for the harm he caused when satisfying his own sexual needs. His actions were worsened by the fact he filmed the attack, one can only presume for his own gratification or to share with others for theirs.

“I would like to thank the victim for having the strength, bravery and courage, not only to come forward but to see the matter through to trial.”
