Willesden teen jailed for Gladstone Park sex attacks

Court hears 19-year-old also beat and robbed two of his seven victims

A teenager who carried out a series of sex attacks and robberies on women as they walked through a picturesque park has been jailed for six-and-a-half years.

Jordon Kagbo-Clarke, 19, of Griffin Close, Willesden, prowled Gladstone Park in Dollis Hill, where he picked out his victims between June and August last year.

Harrow Crown Court heard he sexually assaulted seven women and on two occasions punched his victims in the face before robbing them.

Last July, the Times exclusively revealed that a sex attacker had been targeting women in Gladstone Park and police were warning women to be on their guard.

Kagbo-Clarke was snared after officers carrying out a surveillance operation in the park spotted him in a walled garden area.

As they approached him he ran away dumping a knife in a nearby garden.

He was eventually caught, arrested and subsequently charged with seven counts of sexual assault, two counts of robbery and assault by beating.

Last week, he admitted the charges and on Tuesday he was sentenced.

He will serve his time in a Young Offenders’ Institute.

Detective Sergeant Owen White, investigating officer, said: “This was excellent work carried out by officer from the Violent Crime Unit, to bring to justice a dangerous individual and ensure this lovely park can be enjoyed by the people of Brent without the fear of being a victim of crime.”
