LONDON, July 6: A married city worker who carried an 18-year-old woman into a dark alleyway where he raped and sexually assaulted her multiple times, has been jailed for eight years.
Sanjay Naker, 28, preyed on the woman after she was thrown out of the Number One nightclub near London Bridge, a jury at Inner London crown court heard.
The PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) consultant was caught on CCTV putting the woman over his shoulders to carry to her an alleyway.
Naker, whose wife of two years was at home, initially appeared to show concern for her welfare, picking her up when she fell and offering her his jacket.
The CCTV shows him pulling her in the opposite direction to where she was walking and eventually he succeeded, dragging her to a secluded alley.
He then stripped her down and then raped her for around 30 minutes, the court heard.
Security staff working nearby went to investigate after seeing the suspicious behavior on CCTV. They found the teenager unconscious on the ground with her underwear pulled down and called the ambulance.
Naker said he had met the victim in a club nearby, gave them his details and left the scene.
The victim was taken to hospital to recover. Later she was to Haven rape crisis centre where the sexual offences were confirmed.
Naker took a taxi back to his marital home north London and later claimed to detectives the woman had been "begging" him for sex.
However a jury convicted him of three counts of rape, attempted rape, and sexual assault. He was cleared of a further charge of assault by penetration.
Sentencing him, Judge Freya Newberry said: "You have a respectable life who had a good future ahead of you, with your background you have a network of caring friends and family. If you formed a view that the woman wanted to have sex with you, you were very much mistaken.
"It was quite clear that you decided that you wanted to have sex with her and she had no recollection of what happened but you saw an opportunity. It was a mixture of your own desire and arrogance regardless of any intoxication on your part."
Investigating officer, detective constable Aidan Kersley, from the Met's Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command, said: "Naker deliberately targeted his victim as someone intoxicated and vulnerable. After talking to her for a matter of minutes, he managed to drag her to a secluded area where he raped her.
"She has no memory of what happened. Naker then brazenly gave security guards his name, confident that the victim's intoxication would protect him."
