A Brockley man has been jailed for a string of sex attacks on Deptford children, some committed when he was just 13.

Damien Walters, 32, of St Asaph Road, was jailed for 30 months at Woolwich Crown Court today (June 27) after being found guilty of four counts of indecent assault.

Met detectives has been contacted by three women who stated that Walters had assaulted them in the Deptford area when they were children, between 1995 and 2000.

One of the women told officers that when she was aged six or seven , Walters - who was just 13 at the time - assaulted her on a number of occasions.

Detective Constable Gary Castle said: "I commend the victims for coming forward. All three victims were children at the time and have found it challenging to come forward, to relive the events of their attack from many years ago.

"Walters relied on the fact that these victims were young when he assaulted them and that they would not be believed. He was clearly mistaken."

Walters was found not guilty of one count of rape and the jury failed to reach a verdict for a second count of rape.
