Enfield Man Jailed 14-years After Raping Two Men He Met On Grindr

A 23-year-old man from North London has been jailed for raping two men.

Aaron Goodey, from Tramway Avenue in Enfield, was sentenced to 14 years in jail at Wood Green Crown Court on Friday, 17 September.

He was guilty of raping two men he met on a Grindr dating app. 

He was found guilty of three counts of rape, two counts of robbery and one count of blackmail at the same court on Monday, 19 July.

The Court heard how Goodey had taken the victims to a cashpoint in the Enfield area and forced them to withdraw cash while threatening further violence.

Detectives later linked Goodey to a third offence in Lambeth in January 2020, where a man was assaulted and forced to withdraw money by a man he had met for consensual sex.

The detective submitted evidence taken from the victim of the first offence, which led to scientists identifying Goodey as a suspect.

According to the officers' account, CCTV footage and phone work also linked him to the three incidents.

He denied involvement after he was arrested and interviewed in July 2020.

However, according to the police statement, "the evidence collected by scientists and officers was overwhelming and led to the Crown Prosecution Service authorising charges against him."

Detective Superintendent Seb Adjei-Addoh, from the local policing team in Enfield, said: "Aaron Goodey is a dangerous sexual attacker and posed a significant risk to men across London. He gained access to the victim's houses before subjecting them to significant sexual attacks while using and threatening further violence, to extort money.

"This sentence sends a clear message that sexual violence towards any person will not be tolerated in London, and I acknowledge the bravery shown by the victims in this case who provided crucial evidence to ensure Goodey cannot offend again.

"I would urge anyone who had been the victim of such an offence to contact police immediately on 101. Any reports will be dealt with sensitively, and your identity will be kept confidential. Always call 999 in an emergency."
