Austin Osayande “overpowered” one woman, “put her into a physical lock”, raped her and then tormented her by telling her he was HIV positive.
He pounced on another woman and began sexually assaulting her. He was jailed for life on 23rd February for his sickening acts.
The 40 year old man was caught in CCTV camera in 2015 carrying his first victim – a 24 year old woman – through Leeds City Centre, before he committed the wicked act.
Despite police plea for the predator to come forward, it was not until six years later in 2021, when he assaulted his second victim, that he was caught.
Osayande had delivered a parcel to his second victim while working as a Hermes delivery driver, and told the woman he will be back ‘for a coffee’ later.
On his return to the house, the woman invited him in where he found the opportunity to attack the woman, then telling her he will see her on Saturday.
It was the reporting of this assault that led police to discover his earlier evil actions.
He initially pleaded not guilty last year, but then admitted to both offences of rape and sexual assault by penetration, this year January 27 at a hearing in Leeds Crown Court.
Judge Guy Kearl QC said: ‘You are a danger to women, whether known to you or strangers in situations where you can get them alone and then force yourself on them.
‘This danger has continued for at least six years. You pose a high risk of causing serious harm to female members of the public.’
Osayande was sentenced to life imprisonment and must serve minimum of 16 years before being eligible to be considered for possible parole.
He will be on a sexual predator licence for the rest of his life.
