Man Jailed For Trying To Rape Woman He Met On Night Bus

Friday 20th June 2014

A man who tried to rape a 22-year-old woman he had befriended on a night bus in south London has been jailed for 10 years.

The victim had fallen asleep on the N47 nightbus in June last year when Delroy Bryan sat on the seat in front of her and used his mobile phone to take photos up her skirt.

When she woke up, she discovered she had missed her stop, so the 48-year-old said he would help her get home safely. Telling her that he was taking her to the correct bus stop, he was actually trying to find a secluded place to rape her.

In a quiet park off Sevenoaks Way, he punched the victim to the ground, ripped her tights and climbed on top of her.

She managed to fight him off and shouted for help, when a dog walker came to her help and Mr Bryan ran off.

He was arrested a week later after a PCSO recognised him from a CCTV image.
