Woolwich man jailed for child rapes – including in Woolwich car park

A man from Woolwich, Joel Ampadu, has been jailed for 11 years for raping three girls aged 12 to 15.

One of the attacks was at a Woolwich car park, another at Maryon Park and another was filmed.

In a statement, Detective Constable Amy Beautridge of the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command (CASO), said:“Ampadu targeted these girls and then used fear to control and manipulate them for his own sexual gratification, often recording them on his mobile phone.

“The three young victims in this case have shown immense courage and bravery; not only in coming forward to report these despicable crimes, but also in seeing the investigation through to court.

“Their actions have helped to ensure that a dangerous, sexual predator has been removed from the streets and that he is no longer in a position to harm other young girls. I hope today’s sentence gives the victims some closure and that they are able to move forward with their lives.

“I hope that this conviction brings some closure for the complainants and would urge anyone who has been the victim of sexual violence to report the matter to Police.”


As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
