Mobile phone data proved a rapist was at the scene of a "terrifying and violent" attack in a hotel room.

Delroy Ogiste was convicted after officers gathered evidence that proved he had attacked his victim at a hotel in Bethnal Green in April 2022.

The 43-year-old, of Higham Road, Tottenham, was found guilty of two counts of rape and one count of strangulation at Snaresbrook Crown Court on September 29 .

He was sentenced at the same court on Friday, (December 8) to 13 years' imprisonment. He was also given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

In June 2022, officers were contacted by a woman who told them she had been raped at a hotel in Bethnal Green on April 29.

The woman, aged in her 20s, had been on a night out with a friend when she met the suspect in a fast-food restaurant.

The pair went back to a nearby hotel where he became aggressive and raped her.

She described the attack as "never ending" and told officers she feared she might never see her family again.

Detectives launched an investigation to track down the suspect  and used phone data to identify Ogiste and link him to the crime.

Det Con Molly Osborne, who led the investigation, said: "Ogiste is a dangerous offender who subjected a woman to a terrifying and violent ordeal. I am pleased he will now spend a considerable time in prison.

"I have heard from the victim about the impact the attack has had on her and I know she will have to deal with this for many years to come.

"The sentence handed down will not change this, however I hope knowing her attacker is behind bars will provide some comfort.

"Tackling violence against women and girls is a key priority for the Met and we will continue to do all we can to remove predatory offenders from the streets of the London."

If you have been the victim of a sexual offence and need to speak to police, call 101 or report the information online. Always dial 999 in an emergency.

Victims can also speak to Rape Crisis, a charity in England and Wales which supports victims of sexual violence and abuse.
