A man has been found guilty of raping the same woman twice in three months in south London.

The 22-year-old victim, who did not know her attacker, was raped in Stockwell on 12 April and 14 July 2010.

Onile Huggins, 19, of Mawbey Street, Lambeth, south London, is due to be sentenced next month after being convicted of two counts of rape.

Det Insp Helen Hamilton said the victim was "incredibly brave" in reporting the rapes and giving evidence.

After the conviction at Inner London Crown Court on Friday she said: "I would like to pay tribute to the victim who was incredibly brave in reporting both the rapes to the police so that we could investigate.

"She suffered a terrible ordeal but had the courage to give evidence against Huggins in court."

Huggins is due to be sentenced at the Old Bailey on 8 July.
