If I were to take a wild guess, I’d say this gentleman belongs to the 33% of the Ethiopian population that’s Moslem.
A ‘violent predatory rapist’ has been jailed for life after he roamed the country by train in search of victims, before striking twice in a matter of hours.
Temesgen Desta, 32, raped a woman in her apartment in Birmingham in March, grabbing her by the throat and binding her hands with a bathrobe cord.
Just eight hours earlier, Desta had attempted to choke and rape another woman in Crosby, Merseyside.
A nationwide manhunt was launched for the Ethiopian refugee after the attacks, as police warned he was travelling up and down the rail network to select his victims.
Desta, who arrived in the UK in 2017, was eventually caught on March 21 as he attempted to board a ferry from western Scotland to Belfast.
The Ethiopian refugee was found guilty of rape, intention to rape and two counts of false imprisonment at Birmingham Crown Court and was today handed a life sentence with a minimum of ten years behind bars.
