“Dangerous predator” found guilty of Camberley rape

A 24-year-old man has been found guilty of raping a teenager in Camberley.

Floris-Adrian Gherghelau, of Park Road, Camberley, followed his 18-year-old victim before he grabbed her and subjected her to a prolonged rape in a secluded area of Camberley, shortly before 1am on 1 July 2018.

After the attack, the victim managed to get to a nearby petrol station, where she disclosed what had happened, and staff contacted the police.

The victim provided a description of the offender, and forensic tests gave officers a full DNA profile which led to Gherghelau being found as a match and arrested.

Gherghelau, who pleaded not guilty to various offences was found guilty on all charges and will be sentenced at a later date.
