Sex attackers who lured homeless woman to hotel with hot drink promises jailed

Two men who lured a homeless woman back to their hotel room and sexually assaulted her have been jailed.

Matthew Bibb, 32, and Jake Johnson, 26, were each handed an 11-year sentence after they promised their victim a hot drink and said she could warm up in their hotel room in Hammersmith, London.

However, when they got to the hotel, they violently sexually assaulted her and then threw her out after the attack.

The woman, affected by the abuse she had been subjected to, then reported the men to the hotel manager and her friends, leading to the pair's arrest.

The two men, both from Birmingham, are said to have gone to buy alcohol when they saw the woman sitting out in the cold and saw their opportunity.

Upon their arrest, they both initially denied the woman had come to their hotel room.

They also denied the assault, which took place in November 2018.

The men were ultimately charged with the assault after police considered both CCTV footage and forensic evidence, and pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault by penetration.

Each man was handed an 11-year sentence during their trial at Isleworth Crown Court on November 23.

Detective Constable Carrina Turner said: "Bibb and Johnson subjected the victim – a clearly vulnerable woman – to horrific, humiliating and degrading sexual abuse.

"They are exactly those predatory and violent sexual offenders who we are committed to taking off our streets.

"I would like to commend the victim for her bravery and composure throughout this lengthy investigation.

"I know that she is understandably still suffering from the long term effects of such a terrifying ordeal, but hope she can take some comfort in this result and the knowledge her actions have potentially prevented further offences.

"We always treat any allegation of sexual assault seriously and work hard to support and seek justice for the victim.

"I would urge any victims to speak to us directly or to contact us through a third party support group such as The Havens or London Survivors Gateway. Both offer a 24/7 urgent advice number if you need to speak with someone for the first time. The most important thing is to not suffer in silence."
