A vile child rapist has been jailed for repeatedly attacking a 10-year-old girl who he groomed online.
Mohamed Igal, 23, manipulated his “vulnerable” victim under the social media nickname “Wavey CJ” after meeting her on an estate in Southwark.
She had recently moved to the capital from overseas to live with her family.
Igal, a Dutch national, repeatedly raped the girl between July 2010 and May 2011, before she moved away from the area, a trial at Woolwich Crown Court heard.
His victim found the courage to come forward about the abuse in 2015 when she was 15 and he had tried to contact her again.
The court heard that he had messaged her to tell her he wanted her to perform sexual acts on him.
Igal, of Harper Road, Elephant and Castle, was sentenced to seven years and nine months imprison on Friday, December 16.
He was found guilty of the rape of a female child under 13 years old by a jury on Friday, November 4 following a trial.
