Oluwadamilare Baiyewu, 22, who posed as a church volunteer to mask his sexual depravity, was today jailed for 24 years for the horrific assaults for raping a 17-year-old woman and tried to attack another at knife point.
He was described as a 'dangerous, calculating and predatory rapist' who created the image he was the 'pillar of the community' by helping out at the church.
The court heard how Baiyewu, from Fairlawn in Greenwich, first grabbed a 17-year-old at knife point on December 2, but she managed to break free and escape.
A week later, in the same area of Binsey Walk, Thamesmead, he grabbed a victim, also 17, as she got off the bus at 7pm.
He put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her before marching her into a bin storage area under a walkway. He then raped her in a secluded area.
Baiyewu was tracked down after DNA linking him to the attacks was recovered.
He was arrested on December 16, and was placed on an identity parade where he was picked out by the victim whom he had attempted to rape.
He was today sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court to 24 years in prison. He will serve a minimum of 16 years in prison and will then be on license for eight years.
