A sexual predator who took advantage and sexually assaulted a woman with a sleep disorder after meeting her at a nightclub has been jailed for four years.

Kemalettin Kurt, 28, met the victim and her friends at a club in London’s west end in October 2019. The group then made their way to an after party, but the woman was unable to stay awake due to her sleep disorder.

She was carried to a bedroom by a couple of friends. Kurt then entered the room as she slept and sexually abused her before returning to the party.

The victim later realised she had been attacked in her sleep, alerted her friends and the Met Police’s Sapphire team launched an investigation.

Kurt, of Woodstock Crescent, Enfield, was later identified after his DNA was found on the woman’s underwear and arrested in November that year. 

He was convicted of sexual assault and assault by penetration, following a four-day trial at Southwark Crown Court. Kurt today was jailed for four years with two years’ on extended licence. He was also placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.

The victim was introduced to Kurt while out with friends at a nightclub just off Tottenham Court Road on Saturday, October 29, 2019.

The victim was initially ‘hesitant’ to report the assault, but told Southwark Crown Court she was ‘had friends who encouraged me’.

‘I’m glad that I did because it ended up being rewarding. I got the justice I needed,’ she said, praising the ‘supportive’ Sexual Offences Investigative Techniques (SOIT) officer who ‘genuinely believed in me’.

‘She also fought as hard as she could for me and that helped me a lot. I think that’s integral for cases like these,’ the victim said, adding: ‘The success rate is so low that I always needed that boost to think that I still had a chance at receiving justice.

‘I really want others who have been in a similar situation to have the courage to report the incident.’

The victim said she ‘cannot stress the significance of reporting an incident sooner’. 

She explained: ‘It means you can collect the evidence whilst it’s still fresh in your mind and collect any DNA before it goes away.

‘The jury have a lot of pressure to determine someone’s life so making sure the DNA is available to find is key.

‘I also encourage people to go straight to the station as doing it online results in the police showing up at your door and depending on the situation you are in, it may not be the best option.’

Furthermore, the woman reiterated that people need to ‘believe that justice is available for survivors’. She explained that it ‘may not come in the way that you would expect’ but argued it ‘can be obtainable’.

Detective Sergeant Henh Song, from North East Command, added: ‘This man took complete advantage of a vulnerable woman. I would like to commend the victim for her bravery throughout the investigation and her willingness to give such strong evidence in court.

‘I know this sentencing will not take away her trauma but I hope it offers her some justice. This case really highlights the fact that if you are a victim of sexual assault, you will be listened to, believed and we will seek justice.’
