Man Jailed For Raping 5yrs old, Told Victim Her Mother Would Die if She Told Anyone

A 41-year-old man who raped a five-year-
old girl in Croydon, UK has been jailed for
13 years.
Jerry Ablorh of Bensham Grove, Thornton
Heath, was sentenced on Friday, April 28, at
Croydon Crown Court having previously
been found guilty of rape and two counts of
sexual assault by penetration.
He attacked the girl at his former home in
Collyer Avenue, Croydon between January
and December 2014.
The court heard that Ablorh had befriended
the victim and her mother and worked hard
to build up their trust. He looked after the
victim to help out her mother and took her
to the park, sending photos to reassure her
mum everything was okay. He got the
victim to refer to him as ‘Uncle John’ and
also gave her mum a false name of
‘Eugene’.
Ablorh took the victim to his home – an
outhouse he was renting in a garden in
Collyer Avenue, Croydon – where he raped
her. He said her mother would die if she
told anyone.
Two years passed and Ablorh drifted out of
the family’s life before the victim managed
to tell her mum what had happened. The
matter was reported to police in October
2016 and the victim interviewed by trained
officers. She sobbed throughout as she
relived her ordeal, and she told them about
being raped as well as further offences of
sexual assault.
Ablorh went to ground; police believe he
knew officers were looking for him. The
manhunt team from the Sexual Offences,
Exploitation and Child Abuse Command
joined the hunt for him but to no avail.
Arrest enquiries attempted at various
addresses with the help of the Territorial
Support Group also proved fruitless.
Ablorh was eventually seen on New Year’s
Eve outside a church in Croydon and police
were called.
In interview he denied any wrong-doing but
was charged with two counts of rape and
three counts of sexual assault by
penetration. He stood trial with the victim,
now eight, having to give evidence via live
video link. The jury found Ablorh guilty of
three offences and acquitted him of two.
Investigating officer PC Laura Davis, from
the Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child
Abuse Command, said :
“Ablorh’s crimes were despicable. He
singled out the victim before
launching his attack. It was clearly
the most horrible and terrifying
experience for her, a girl of just five
years old.
“There is every chance Ablorh has
abused more children who have yet
to come forward. We would appeal
for anyone with information to
contact us in confidence.”
