Rapist From Beckenham Gets 7 Years

The victim was on holiday in London whilst she was lured to a quiet spot and raped by Salah Koubar (above) from Densole Close in Beckenham in July last year.

Koubar, 20 tricked his victim on a series of bus rides thinking she was getting him back to where she was staying.

THe rapist was identified on CCTV and was found guilty on 10th Jan and given 7 years last Friday, 3rd Feb.

Of the rapist, Det Insp Ian Trantum said “Koubar is a manipulative and nasty individual who deliberately exploited the victim’s vulnerability and unfamiliarity of the city. He led her away from the busy city centre and raped her where he knew it would be quiet. Incidents like this are thankfully extremely rare, however we police a CCTV rich environment and will do everything in our power to find those responsible. And as in Koubar’s case, bring them before the courts.

He went on to say “I would like to applaud the overwhelming bravery of this victim who had the strength to return to London to face her attacker in court. I’d also like to thank the Good Samaritan who helped the victim after this truly horrific attack, he supported and comforted her until police arrived. Koubar will now spend the next seven years in prison for his shocking actions.”
