Jailed rapist collected tights of victims
London man 'acted on a fetish when he attacked his victims'
A serial rapist kept the hosiery of women he had attacked stockpiled in his bedroom, a west London court heard today.
Myles Thompson-Edwards, 25, was jailed for nine years at Isleworth Crown Court after admitting to rape, sexual assault, and assault by penetration.
Speaking after the sentence Detective Chief Inspector Adam Lowe said: "The evidence recovered identified Thompson-Edwards as having a fetish for women's tights and he clearly acted on this fetish when he attacked his victims."
Thompson-Edwards was found guilty of attacking two women in the South Ealing area, with the first incident happening in January 2012 and the second occurring 10 months later in November.
After the second attack Thompon-Edwards was apprehended at his home, where detectives found a number of pairs of women’s tights hidden.
The Detective Chief Inspector added:"The streets of West London are safer without him. The offences he has been linked to span a 20-month period and it is possible that others have been the victim of this man."
