Rapist John Anthony Walker jailed for Wembley Park sex attack

Sex attacker was caught following a cold case review

A man has admitted raping a woman as she left Wembley Park Tube Station almost 25 years ago.

John Anthony Walker from Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, attacked the 25-year-old woman after she on October 16, 1987, and also attacked a teenager in Marlow Railway Station in 1989.

He remained undetected until a cold case review produced DNA which showed up as a match for the 51-year-old.

He was subsequently arrested and charged with three counts of indecent assault and two counts of rape.

This week, at Oxford Crown Court he admitted the charges and will be sentenced on February 10.

Pete Beirne, from the major crime review team at Thames Valley Police, said: “Offender’s who think they have got away with a crime over the passage of time should be aware that the team will be doing their utmost to bring them to justice and solve crime.”
