On Thursday, Derry McCann admitted to raping his second victim. And, he assaulted the woman just hours before marrying his pregnant fiance. He’s now being pegged as a serial rapist.
McCann snatched his female rape victim on January 13th as she walked home. He grabbed her by the arm, then proceeded to drag her into a nearby secluded area in Grove Road by east London’s Victoria Park..
According to the Hackney Gazette, McCann taunted his victim, playing demented mind games with her before he raped her. He stole her cell phone and bra, and took photos of her.
“A little after midnight the victim was walking the short distance home after socializing with friend,” prosecutor Kate Bex told the court. “Within feet of the (park) exit the defendant grabbed her and pulled her off the park and began a sustained and systematic attack.”
Bex said McCann had an “unusual” conversation with his victim, asking her what she thought he was about to do her before he began his assault.
Shortly after the attack, McCann attended his own wedding at The Vestry in Bromley-by-Bow.
In 2006, a then-17-year-old McCann attacked and raped a 30-year-old trainee solicitor in a London park.
The Telegraph reported that McCann and a friend mugged the woman, and the friend ran off after McCann said he was “going to have fun” with her and then kill her.
