Loughborough University rapist has prison sentence increased
He attacked three male students on their way home from a night out
After evading the police for seven years, Ibrahim Elamin, 35, was convicted in May of this year for offences of rape and sexual assault against three Loughborough University students back in February of 2010.
One of the victims, who was 19 years old at the time, was returning to his accommodation after a night out in the Students’ Union when the attack took place. Despite recovering DNA evidence at the time of the offence, police were unable to identify Elamin, as there was no match on the Police National Database. He managed to avoid conviction until he was arrested recently in the Manchester area for unrelated fraud offences. Further investigations were able to confirm Elamin’s involvement in two other sexual assaults that took place on campus in the same six week period in 2010.
Originally, the convicted rapist was sentenced to seven years and eight months in prison for his offences, after appearing at Leicester Crown Court.
Following a recent appeal hearing, Elamin’s sentence was increased to eleven years and three months.
