JAILED: 'Dangerous' man who climbed through window and sexually assaulted woman in Oxford

Nelson Soares has been sentenced for 9 offences, including sexual assault by penetration.

Soares - who police say 'poses a risk to the public' - admitted the offences at Oxford Crown Court back in January, and was jailed for 10 years at the same court today.

The 28-year-old from Shelford Place in Oxford pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault by penetration, one of voyeurism, two counts of trespass with intent to commit a sexual offence, and five of exposure.

In February last year, Soares gained access to a property in Divinity Road through an insecure window and sexually assaulted a 21-year-old woman.

The counts of sexual assault by penetration, voyeurism and one count of trespass with intent to commit a sexual offences was in connection with that incident.

The other count of trespass with intent to commit a sexual offences took place last June in Headington and all five of the exposure incidents took place on separate occasions in Headington last year.

Soares will be on the Sex Offenders Register for life and has an extended license period of four years.

Investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Bruce Riddell, said: “The sexual assault was a significant incident in Oxford in February last year and as a result a number of high visibility patrols were put in place making the area hostile to this offender.

“I’d like to thank all the victims in this case as they have consistently supported the police during this investigation.

“It has been a complex case, which involved a number of different officers across the force. The investigation team throughout has been meticulous and professional, leading to the guilty plea from Soares.

“I’m glad that finally Soares has admitted to these offences, preventing the victims from going through a potentially lengthy court process and he will now have time to reflect on the damage caused by his actions.

“Soares is clearly a dangerous man, who poses a risk to the public.

“Thames Valley Police takes reports of this nature very seriously and will investigate thoroughly.”
