A Brighton man has been found guilty of raping a 19-year-old woman who lived near his Woodingdean home.

Michael Doos, 52, unemployed, of Netherfield Green, Woodingdean, raped the teenager, who was feeling ill, shortly after she got off a bus.

The day after the attack last summer Sussex Police said: “The victim, a 19-year-old woman, had got off the number 2 bus at The Ridgeway shortly before midnight on Wednesday (12 August) and walked north in Crescent Drive North.

“She stopped walking as she felt unwell and as she did so was approached by a man in a car.

“He got out and helped her, then pushed her against a wall and raped her. He drove away along Crescent Drive North.”

Doos was tried by a jury and convicted at Lewes Crown Court where he is expected to be jailed on Friday 11 March.
