A man has been jailed for six years for raping a student he lured to a non-existent job interview.

Sebastian Szerer, a hotel housekeeper who was convicted of rape at the Old Bailey yesterday has been sentenced to jail for 6-years. The victim was lured in July 2012, to the four star hotel, which over-looks Buckingham Palace for a job interview, one that Sebastian Szerer, 39, had made up after talking with the victim on gay dating app Jack’d.

The court heard, after the “formal” part of the interview, Szerer showed the unidentified student the Queen Suite to show off where celebrities stayed whilst booked in at the hotel and suggested that the student try the bed to see how comfortable it was. The court heard that Szerer then advanced upon the student, who fell back onto the bed. Szerer pinned the student down and forced the terrified 24-year-old into oral sex. The court heard how he used his full body weight to hold the man down.

During the trial the student told the court that he was “distraught, shaken up, absolutely petrified.”

The victim kept the brutal attack secret for a year. He only eventually contacted Victim Support after Szerer re-contacted him on social media with the chilling message, “Hello stranger.”

Szerer, who had worked for Red Carnation Hotels, the company, which owns Rubens, for six years, according to his Linkedin, was, found guilty of one count of rape yesterday at the Old Bailey in London and will be sentenced today.

Investigating officer, Detective Inspector Lee Davison, of Sexual Offences Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, said: “Szerer abused his position as Head House Keeper.

“He purposely lured the victim to the hotel on the pretext of a job interview that didn’t exist. He then raped him. Thankfully he has been found guilty and I praise the victim today for his decision to report this rape to the police.

“The Metropolitan Police’s Sexual Offences Exploitation & Child Abuse Command will pursue all such offenders to bring them to justice and I would encourage anyone who has suffered at the hand of another to report the matter in the knowledge that they will be believed and supported.”

 

Szerer has been jailed for 6 years.
