The rapist who forced at least 6 women into oral s3x at knifepoint’may have had additional victims,’ according to police.

According to UK police, a serial rapist who cornered at least six women walking home alone in north London and forced them to have oral sex with him is suspected of targeting additional victims.

Francis Mukendi, 27, was dubbed the “doorstep rapist” because he preyed on women who were preoccupied while putting their keys out on their doorsteps.

Prosecutors claimed he would then approach them from behind with a knife or hammer, forcing them to perform oral sex on him, and then flee.

Prosecutors claim he videotaped his assaults and saved the footage and photos on his Macbook computer.

Mukendi was found guilty of four counts of rape, three counts of attempted rape, two acts of sexual assault, and four counts of possessing a bladed instrument at Wood Green Crown Court after a six-week trial.

On March 27, he was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 15 years behind bars for six rapes that occurred in the Camden region between September 2017 and December 2019.

And, now that police believe he may have had additional victims, they are urging them to come forward and tell their experiences.

He was ‘very forensically and digitally savvy,’ according to police, and eluded detection for years by knowing where CCTV cameras were located and using gloves to prevent his fingerprints from being traced during his crimes.

The rapes went undetected for several years, and Mukendi even rapped “I’m fed up” in an animated video put on YouTube in 2020. I’m stressed because I haven’t had any sex.’

In September 2017, he assaulted his first victim by waiting for her near a doorway, asking her to go down on her knees, and placing a knife around her neck.

‘I came across the CCTV image that ended up in the press,’ Detective Sergeant Sam Wood said.

‘I felt the image, as grainy as it was portrayed, was clear enough for anyone who knew or was the person to recognize them.’

‘Investigation of one claim of this sort is substantial and on a broad scale,’ said Detective Inspector Ross Murrell. For us, the reopening of five old ones is a major probe.

‘We firmly believe there are other victims who haven’t come forward because of the nature of the material found on his phone and laptop.’

‘Anyone who believes they have been a victim is encouraged to contact us or third parties such as Haven or Rape Crisis.’

DS Wood expressed his gratitude to the women who came forward, saying, ‘I cannot thank them enough for doing that.’ As a group, we can hope that publicizing their bravery would encourage other victims to come forward.

‘Even though there was a thorough investigation, he might not have been convicted if they hadn’t shown in court.’

‘Forcing victims to relive prior pain demonstrates a tendency to be arrogant and have no thinking for any future trauma he would cause.’

‘These ladies should be able to walk home alone at night, but he has taken that away from them completely.’

‘He did it right in front of their eyes.’ There are multiple levels of trauma that will affect them for the rest of their lives.’
