Man sentenced for vicious rape and attack

A 21-year-old man has been jailed after he was found guilty of multiple offences including rape.

Met officers investigated quickly, leading them to arrest Kieran Johnson (21) of no fixed abode, the day after the incident.

On October 13, Johnson was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 18 years’ imprisonment. He had been found guilty on March 22 of two counts of rape, one of sexual assault by penetration and one of robbery. Johnson also pleaded guilty to possession of a Class B drug.

The offences took place on March 13, 2022 at an address in Greenwich.

Johnson hit the 18-year-old victim with a baseball bat and demanded that he handed over his phone, keys and vape pen. After the robbery, Johnson raped and assaulted the man multiple times.

Forensic evidence

Forensic evidence from the scene and mobile phone work led to the arrest of Johnson the following day at an East London hotel.

Detective constable Robert Shires of the Met’s South East BCU said: “I hope that this conviction and the lengthy prison sentence can bring some closure to the victim, and show that justice has been served. We will continue to support the victim and I hope that he recovers in his own time.

“I urge anyone who has been the victim of a sexual offence to report the matter to police. Dedicated officers will support you and work tirelessly to bring offenders to justice.”
