Anthony Constantinou, 35 (03/10/1981), of Walton on Thames, Surrey, has today (Thursday, 1 December) been sentenced to 12 months in prison for two sexual assaults on women in the City.
Following a trial at the Old Bailey in September, Constantinou was convicted of two counts of sexual assault, and he was today sentenced at the same court.
The counts relate to offences committed against one woman in October 2014 and another woman in February 2015, both at an office in Heron Tower in Bishopsgate in the City of London.
Detective Inspector Anna Rice, from the City of London Police’s Public Protection Unit, said: “Each of these assaults represented an extremely unpleasant ordeal for the victims and we hope that today’s verdict can go some small way to offering them a sense that justice has been served.
“Constantinou clearly thought that his demeaning, intimidating behaviour was acceptable and today’s sentence has shown this is simply not the case.
“I’d like to praise these women for their courage in reporting these offences to the Police and throughout the trial, and I would encourage anyone else in a similar situation to contact police.
“We have a dedicated unit to investigate sexual crime and related offences, and it is important to know that crimes like these do not have to be suffered in silence
