He pulled over and offered to take her home.

The victim believed he was driving a taxi or minicab and got inside.

But she quickly realized something was wrong when Mabwa started driving in the opposite direction.

Over the course of the next hour and a half, she desperately tried to get out of the car several times before the 33-year-old man stopped her.

She also bravely texted her boyfriend and a friend before sending their locations.

Vile Mabwa then pulled into a dark parking lot. The victim started screaming – and a passerby heard her cry for help.

The defendant fled, but was arrested later in the night.

Mabwa, of Melville Avenue in Ealing, was eventually jailed, more than four years after his horrific attack.

He was sentenced to nine years in prison and will be on the sex offenders list for the rest of his life after being found guilty of kidnapping, false imprisonment and committing a crime with intent to commit a sex offence.

Police said the victim had a “horrifying experience” after she was picked up in busy Euston Street on May 8, 2017.

Met Police detective Constable Natalie Witt said: “This has been a terrifying experience for the young woman involved, who was targeted while walking home from a night out.

“Her courage and support for the investigation means that Isaac Mabwa is no longer a risk to other women, and although today is not a day to celebrate, I hope The case allowed her to close.

“I recognize that the details of this terrible crime will cause fear in the community, especially among women, and I want to reassure you that the Met is doing all it can to help the streets. London is safer for everyone.”
