Fake taxi driver who kidnapped woman, 25, on night out in bid to carry out sex attack is jailed for nine years

A FAKE cab driver who kidnapped a 25-year-old woman and tried to sexually assault her during a horrific 90-minute ordeal has been jailed.

Isaac Mabwa was driving a hire car through central London when he spotted the woman in the early hours of the morning.

He pulled over and offered her a lift home.

The victim believed he was driving a taxi or minicab and got in.

But she quickly realised something was wrong when Mabwa began driving in the opposite direction.

Over the course of the following hour-and-a-half, she desperately tried to get out of the car a number of times before the 33-year-old stopped her.

She also bravely managed to send a message to her boyfriend and a friend before sending both her location.

Vile Mabwa then pulled into a dark car park. The victim began screaming – and a passer-by heard her calls for help.

The defendant fled, but was arrested later that night.

Mabwa, of Melville Avenue in Ealing, has now finally been jailed, more than four years after his horror attack.

He was sentenced to nine years in prison and will be on the sex offenders' register for the rest of his life after being convicted of kidnap, false imprisonment, and committing an offence with the intent of a sexual offence.

Police say the victim suffered a “terrifying experience” after she was picked up in busy Euston Road on May 8 2017.

Detective Constable Natalie Witt of the Met Police said: “This was a terrifying experience for the young woman involved, who was targeted while walking home from a night out.

“Her bravery and support for the investigation means Isaac Mabwa is no longer a risk to other women, and while today is not a day to celebrate, I hope the sentence allows her some closure.

“I recognise that details of this awful crime will cause fear among the community, particularly women, and I would like to reassure you that the Met is doing everything it can to make the streets of London safer for everyone.”
