A sicko took a 13-year-old student into an alley and raped her as she walked to school.

Kadian Nelson, 27, carried out the attack in Mitcham, south London, on November 3 last year.

He crept up behind his victim before putting his hand over her mouth and another over her head during the “sickening attack”.

Forcing her to walk into an alleyway, Nelson made the girl take off her coat and school blazer before sexually assaulting her.

He also put his own jacket on the victim and threatened to kill her.

Police were alerted when a woman called 999 saying her daughter had seen a man grab a young girl.

When one of the woman's relatives interrupted Nelson, he told her the victim was his sister, the Crown Prosecution Service said.

Following the incident, the Metropolitan Police named Nelson as a suspect and urged him to come forward for his own safety.

Local residents were told not to take the law into their own hands after angry groups gathered at addresses in the area as news of the incident spread on social media.

Nelson appeared at Kingston Crown Court on Monday, April 26, where he admitted kidnap, rape and making a threat to kill, the CPS said in a statement.

Senior prosecutor Kate Shilton 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.
