A NEW Cross man has been jailed for five years after raping a 22-year-old woman who had gone to bed at a gathering in Bermondsey.

Ricardo Ramsay, aged 25, of Bowerman Avenue, was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court today (DEC 16) to five years in prison for rape after being found guilty on November 18.

The court heard how the victim had been out with her friend in London Bridge in February last year and met a group of men who came back to her Bermondsey flat.

She went to bed, while her friend stayed socialising with the men, and was raped in the night as well as having items stolen from her flat.

The victim contacted police the following day and detectives identified Ramsay from CCTV at a bar the group had been to.

He was arrested on March 29 last year and charged with rape on October 3 of the same year.

Ramsay originally stood trial at Woolwich Crown Court on June 17 but a retrial was ordered after the jury failed to reach a verdict.

He will be on the sex offenders’ register for the rest of his life.

A fair bit of justice for a change. Hope he receives same inside,although by the looks of him, he would probably enjoy that.

Along with a longer sentence you could castrate the b****ard and chop his hands off, perhaps that might deter him from trying it on again in the future, once he has been released after a five minute stint in prison that is.
