Woman on train spots man who raped her six years ago

A man has been jailed for life after a woman he raped six years earlier spotted him at a train station.

Antonio White, 54, was sentenced to life in prison on Friday after his victim saw him at an Atlanta station in 2013, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard revealed the victim cried for help after recognising White, leading to his arrest.

“She was overcome by the moment and began to yell out that he was the man who had raped her six years earlier,” Howard said.

According to prosecutors, the victim accepted a ride off White in August 2007.

She says she remembered White from a living in a previous neighbourhood and deemed it safe to get in.

Yet instead of driving her home, White took her to an abandoned house. She tried to flee, however he chased her whilst wielding a gun and managed to pull her back into his car by her hair.

“White then raped the victim inside his vehicle,” Howard said.

The victim failed to report the incident to police at the time, only telling some family and friends.

Prosecutors presented evidence at trial of previous sexual assaults involving White.

He has previous convictions including rape and robbery.
