14 yr old gang raped

FOUR teenagers have been locked up for a total of 26 years for their part in the rape and false imprisonment of a 14-year-old girl.

Unemployed Christopher Onyeneke, (pic above) aged 19, of Lanyard House, Deptford, was sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment for one count of false imprisonment and one count of rape.

Student Robert Clarke, (pic above) aged 17, of Gosterwood Street, Deptford, was sentenced to six years behind bars for one count of false imprisonment and one count of rape.

Unemployed Daimon Wallace, (pic above) aged 18, of Amersham Road, Deptford, was sentenced to nine years imprisonment for one count of false imprisonment and one count of rape.

James Brown, (pic above) a 19-year-old student of Larch Close, Deptford, was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment for one count of false imprisonment.

Onyeneke, Clarke and Wallace were placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.

The judge ordered the jury to acquit a 17-year-old youth from the Deptford area.

Onyeneke and Wallace were sentenced on October 30 and Brown and Clarke on November 1 at Blackfriars Crown Court.

They had pleaded not guilty to the charges but were convicted by a jury.

The court heard at around 10pm on September 10 last year the victim was at a bus stop in Deptford when she received a call from Clarke, whom she had met earlier that day.

He arrived to meet her with Brown and asked the girl to go with him to nearby Syes Court Park, where there were a number of other young men.

After she argued with Wallace, the 18-year-old took her behind some bushes and raped her.

She was then subjected to a catalogue of violence and sexual assault, including rape at the hands of Onyeneke and Clarke.

On her way to a bus stop afterwards she was threatened by Brown before she got away.
