A ‘predatory’ sex pest from Wembley who was caught groping three women has been jailed and banned from using the London Underground during peak hours.
Emanuil Boros, 29, of Wellspring Crescent, pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual assault, two against the same woman in the space of nine days.
He was sentenced to 12 weeks in jail on May 8 at Blackfriars Crown Court and ordered to sign the Sex Offender Register for 10 years.
Boros approached his victims from behind and inappropriately touched them, either as they waited for a train or went through the barriers at Finchley and Balham in November and December 2016.
British Transport Police (BTP) officers began patrolling the Balham Station and arrested him on December 8 after seeing him grope his third victim.
He was issued with a sexual harm prevention order, banning him from entering Balham and Finchley underground or mainline stations for five years.
The ban also prevents him from entering any Tube station, or travel on any Tube train between 6.30am-9.30am and 4pm-7pm, Monday to Friday.
PC Mark Luker, from BTP, said: “We are satisfied with the sentence handed to Boros, that he will be placed on the Sex Offender Register and has been banned from using the underground at peak times.
“Boros is a predatory sex offender who specifically targeted women as they used the London Underground network to commute around the capital.
“He showed little regard for his victims, leaving them in shock and deeply upset.
“I would like to commend their bravery in coming forward and reporting these offences to us, which should give others the confidence to speak out.”
He added: “It is possible there are other women out there who Boros may have preyed on but, for whatever reason, have chosen not to report what happened.
Our message to anyone who is a victim of unwanted sexual behaviour is that reporting it can help us to stop it: no incident or detail is too small or trivial.
“As this case shows, we will always take you seriously and treat you with respect.”
