Man jailed after rare conviction relating to condom removal during sex

A man has been jailed after taking his condom off, without consent, during sex.

Guy Mukendi, 39, of Stockwell Lane, Brixton was sentenced today to four years and three months in prison after the case concluded at Inner London Crown Court. He was found guilty on April 2.

Non-consensual condom removal is sometimes referred to as ‘stealthing’ and is classified as rape under English and Welsh law.

Prosecutions for this type of crime are very rare due to under-reporting.

On May 9 last year, Met officers responded quickly to a report of sexual assault made by a young woman in Brixton.

The woman had consented to sex with Mukendi on the condition that a condom was used. During sex, the man removed the condom without the victim’s knowledge.

Throughout the course of the investigation and court process, a specialist officer continued to help the victim, while offering her further support from expert charities such as Rape Crisis and Survivors Gateway.

Local Brixton officers secured a detailed and impactful statement from the victim and began investigating the suspect, looking at text exchanges and forensic evidence.

This milestone case comes as the Met continues its pledge to be more suspect-focused in their approach to crimes that disproportionately affect women and girls.

Officers worked with the victim to obtain screenshots of messages from Mukendi in which he apologised for taking the condom off, explaining it was because he had not had sex in a long time. He then deleted the messages. This evidence contributed to securing Mukendi’s conviction.

Detective Constable Jack Earl, who led the investigation, said: “Throughout this investigation Mukendi denied any wrongdoing – but our officers built a compelling case against him to leave no doubt in the jury’s mind.

“We were dedicated to securing justice for the victim and will continue to raise awareness that this crime is a form of rape.

“The victim did the right thing to call the police straight away and her bravery should not be overshadowed.”

The victim has been granted a restraining order for five years
