A 'DANGEROUS' sex attacker who assaulted lone women, including one who was heavily pregnant, has been jailed.
Ali Husseini, 27, was slapped with a six-year jail sentence after performing a series of sexual attacks in a subway underneath the A12 in Poplar, East London.
The violent man would stalk lone women making their way home who went into the subway- before chasing and sexually assaulting them.
In August last year, Husseini followed a 32-year-old woman and then ran and grabbed her by the throat.
The sick 27-year-old then forced her forwards in the subway and sexually assaulted her – before she bit his arm and ran away.
One of Husseini's victims was a heavily pregnant woman – who he followed as she walked through the empty subway back to work.
The violent man slapped the woman from behind, causing her to run away.
Just one day later, he then targeted a 20-year-old woman and held her up by the throat against the wall of the subway.
He then tried to undo the victim's trouser zip and started to undo his own – before she let out a scream causing him to run away.
Husseini was arrested and then charged last September – and has now been sentenced to six years and nine months in prison.
He will also be subject to a sexual harm prevention order for ten years and placed on the sex offenders' register.
Detective Constable Charlotte Baghurst, from the Specialist Crime Command, said: “Husseini carried out a number of violent and predatory attacks over a prolonged period of time, assaulting women as they unassumingly went about their day-to-day business.
"He targeted lone women and instilled fear in a community for a number of weeks. The verdict has certainly put a dangerous and predatory criminal behind bars.
"The impact of his actions on the victims is beyond imagination. I want to express my gratitude to these incredibly brave women who came forward to support this investigation, without which I have no doubt that Husseini would have continued his offending.
"I hope that the verdict offers some justice and reassurance as they work to rebuild their lives.
“The Met is absolutely committed to bringing justice to victims of sexual assault, and to making women and girls feel safe in London.
"Our teams stop at nothing to investigate reports of sexual offences and to provide support to victims."
