A London man was sentenced to 14 years in jail after raping two transgender women.

Jorge Jawhar, 24, pleaded guilty to two charges of rape, one charge of attempted rape and one charge of theft.

Jawhar arranged to meet his 21-year-old first victim at her Clapham home on 4 August last year.

When he entered the apartment, he immediately grabbed her and became violent.

He tried to kiss her and when she resisted, he forced himself on her, according to Metropolitan Police reports.

She pushed him off and threatened to call the police, but Jawhar threw her phone away, pinned her down and attempted to rape her.

He then sexually assaulted her twice.

Jawhar arranged to meet his 35-year-old second victim on 2 September last year.

Similarly, as soon as she opened the door, he lunged and immediately began to kiss her.

He forced his way into the flat, slapping her in the face three times, before raping her and stealing her perfume.

Forensic enquiries led detectives to arrest Jawhar, who initially denied all offences.

Detective Inspector Suzanne Jordan of the Met’s Sexual Offences Exploitation and Child Abuse, who led the investigation, said: ‘Jawhar is a dangerous sexual predator who used violence against his vulnerable victims for his own gratification and I am pleased that he will now spend a long time behind bars.

‘He targeted his victims and thought that because of the nature of their work, his offending would go unreported. I would like to stress that the Met is committed to seeking justice for all victims of sexual offences.

‘It is quite possible that there are other victims of Jawhar who chose not to report the crimes. We would urge them to come forward and speak to police,’ she said.

Police are urging any other potential victims to come forward.

The London man was given a 14-year jail sentence at Isleworth Crown Court on Friday (12 May).
