Pervert, 27, pleads guilty after kidnapping girl, 13, and raping her in horrific attack as she walked to school
A vile pervert has pleaded guilty after kidnapping a 13-year-old girl and raping her in an alleyway.
The young girl was walking to school in Mitcham, London when she was targeted in the horrific attack in November last year.
Kadian Nelson, 27, today admitted kidnap, rape and making a threat to kill at Kingston Crown Court.
The court heard he followed the schoolgirl before creeping up behind her and putting one hand over her mouth and another on her head.
He then threatened to kill her and forced her to walk towards an alleyway in Mitcham.
The girl had been on the phone chatting to a friend about their homework when she was attacked just after 7am.
Nelson told her to take off her coat and school blazer before orally raping her. He then put his own jacket on the victim.
Police were alerted when a woman called 999 stating that her daughter had seen a man grab a young girl.
A family member of the woman then went out to check what had happened and managed to interrupt Nelson.
When she questioned him he told her that the victim was his sister.
The victim then managed to signal that she needed help before police arrived and Nelson fled, leaving the victim wearing his jacket.
Kate Shilton, from the CPS, said: “This was a terrifying stranger attack on a young girl on her way to school.
“The prosecution was able to present compelling evidence that made clear that it was Kadian Nelson who had carried out this sickening attack.
“The prosecution case included video footage and DNA evidence from the lighter and tobacco pouch found inside Nelson’s jacket pocket, which he left behind.
“The victim was also able to identify him in an ID parade. These guilty pleas will mean that Nelson’s young victim will be spared the ordeal of giving evidence in court.
“I would like to thank the members of the family who saw what happened and took quick action in alerting the police to the incident.
“The young victim has shown remarkable courage during these proceedings and I hope this conviction will go some way to providing her with closure.
“Sexual offences are some of the most serious and complex cases to prosecute.
“The CPS is committed to bringing sexual offenders to justice where there is the evidence to do so.”
At the time of the attack Scotland Yard were forced to warn people not to “take the law into their own hands” after the case gained traction on social media.
Crowds of locals visited various addresses and police said “emotions are running high”.
The Met issued an emergency Section 60 dispersal order – giving officers the power to search anyone and instruct them to leave the area.
Nelson was arrested just hour after the attack in Tooting.
He will be sentenced at the same court on August 13.
