A man has been jailed for eight-and-a-half years for the rape of a 23-year-old woman in her own home.
Mustafa Osman, 36 (04.12.76) of Lebus Street, London N17 arrived uninvited to the victim’s home in Chingford, E4, at just before midnight on Monday, 11 November 2013.
Osman initially assaulted the victim by slapping her face and pulling her hair before forcing her to remove her clothes. She was then subjected to a variety of assaults spanning a four hour period.

During her ordeal the 23-year-old victim was threatened by Osman who said he would find her and ‘ruin her life’ if she told anyone.
Wanting to get away from Osman, the victim explained that she had to leave for work. Osman, now asking her to forgive him, left at the same time.
When she arrived at work the victim told work colleagues of the incident and police were called.
Mustafa Osman was arrested by the Metropolitan Police Child Abuse and Sexual Exploitation Command on 21 November 2013 and charged 22 November 2013 with two counts of Rape and one count of digital penetration.
He pleaded not guilty and appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Thursday, 16 October, where he was found guilty on all three counts by a unanimous verdict.
Osman appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday, 24 October, where he was sentenced to eight-and-a-half years.
Detective Constable Richard Wren of the Met’s Sexual Exploitation and Child Abuse Command said: “This young woman was subjected to a torturous ordeal that spanned four hours and put her in fear for her life.
“She was then compelled to give evidence in court by Osman entering a not guilty plea. I hope that the sentence handed down provides her with a measure of comfort and goes someway to restoring her sense of personal safety.”
