A man has been found guilty of raping a 15-year-old girl after he attacked her in north London.
Deangelo Brown, aged 23 of Bank Close, Luton was found guilty at Harrow Crown Court on Tuesday, 15 September of rape and sexual activity with a child.
Brown is due to be sentenced for his crimes at the same court on Tuesday, 3 November 2020.
An investigation was launched by the Metropolitan police after a 15-year-old girl stated that she had been raped near Harlesden High Street in Brent on the morning of Tuesday, 10 March.
Brown had approached her while she was standing at a bus stop; after asking her age, he demanded that she follow him. Fearing for her safety, the girl went with him into an alleyway where she was attacked.
After having witnessed the horrific incident, a member of the public came to the victim’s assistance and walked her to Harlesden police station where she reported the assault. Brown’s description was circulated to officers and he was arrested nearby.
The teenager was taken to a Haven and provided with support from specially trained officers.
Detective Constable Samantha Wilton, from the North West BCU, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to praise the bravery and composure shown by this young girl after experiencing a horrifying ordeal.
“The impact of that morning simply cannot be forgotten. Brown is a dangerous predator who has rightly been found guilty.
“I would also like to thank the person who helped the victim and kindly escorted her to the police station so that she wouldn’t be alone.
“I would urge anyone who has been the victim of a sexual offence to contact police and report it so that we can bring those responsible before the courts.”
