New Addington man secretly filmed sex acts with underage girls

A 29-year-old Croydon man who committed sex offences after grooming schoolgirls on social media has been jailed for 13 years.

Olubunmi Abolumo, of Central Parade in New Addington, was sentenced yesterday having been convicted of sexual offences against a 15-year-old girl, making indecent images of children and voyeurism.

At a previous hearing at Croydon Crown Court in February, he pleaded guilty to 25 counts of making indecent images of a child and one count of voyeurism.

Following trial at Croydon Crown Court, Abolumo was convicted by jury last month of three counts of sexual activity with a child.

He was found not guilty of two counts of rape against two separate victims.

He targeted young girls on the internet after pretending to be a teenage boy, persuaded them to go to his address and then secretly videoed himself sexually assaulting them.

He kept the footage on his laptop which was located after his arrest.

He was arrested in August last year and has been in custody ever since.
