Pawel Pazola Wiki – Pawel Pazola Biography
Pawel Pazola, a vile predator who posed as a police officer to rape two women has been jailed for 14 years.
Pawel Pazola, from Crawley, West Sussex, threatened the women with a fake gun and police badge – so he could “force them to engage in sexual acts.”
Pazola used an imitation gun to threaten the Brazilian women in their 20s with deportation and arrest.
He is 51 years old.
His victims were two sex workers who were in London at the time of the attacks in 2020.
A court heard the pervert arranged sexual services with both victims via an escort website, but, after threatening them, he forced both into “sexual acts that went beyond their agreement.”
But both sex workers showed great “bravery and courage” to report the offenses and, through phone work, Met Police were able to identify Pazola and arrest him; his home address and car were searched.
He raped the first victim on August 7 last year after meeting her at an address in Camden, where he forced her to engage in sexual acts beyond what they had agreed.
The second rape took place on August 22, 2020, in Bayswater, Westminster. Again, Pazola used force to get the victim to carry out sex acts that she had not agreed to.
On both occasions, Pazola pretended to be a police officer and threatened to deport the victims if they didn’t comply.
In the second attack, he even produced a fake police badge and a fake gun.
After raping the victims, he took back the money he had initially paid them. He also stole additional money from his second victim.
Pazola of Crawley, West Sussex, was later arrested on Sunday, August 30, 2020.
Detective Sergeant Sam Lockstone, who led the investigation, said: “Pazola is a highly dangerous predator who sought to take advantage of the victims’ perceived vulnerabilities for his gratification and monetary gain.
“I would like to praise the victims for showing such bravery and courage throughout this investigation and during the trial. I am especially pleased that our supportive response to the first victim encouraged the second victim to come forward.
“The Met’s response to sex work has not changed; our priority remains addressing vulnerability and exploitation linked to on-street, off-street, and online sex work.
“Our approach is not to criminalize the sex workers involved but to safeguard and support them, and build mutual trust and confidence on encouraging the sharing of information to improve safety.
“I hope that this sentence demonstrates the Met’s commitment to tackling crimes against sex workers, and violence against women and girls in whatever form it may take.”
He was locked up for 14 years on Friday at Wood Green Crown Court after a jury found him guilty of two counts of rape, one count of robbery, one count of impersonating a police officer, and one count of possession of an imitation firearm.
The sentencing at Wood Green Crown Court came after he was found guilty of all charges on September 2, following a trial that lasted two weeks.
