Edmilson Caimanque Wiki
Edmilson Caimanque Biography
A pair of brothel robbers who threatened two sex workers with an ax before raping and robbing them have been jailed for 33 years.
Edmilson Caimanque, 23, David Fonseca, 27, along with Adilson Mendes-Namdja-Uare, 23, and a fourth unidentified man posed as clients before breaking into the brothel in Hackney, northeast London.
Mendes-Namdja-Uare had worked as a security guard for the brothel, so he knew the location of CCTV cameras and an ax that was kept hidden for emergencies.
Armed with the ax and a knife, they placed plastic bags over the victims’ heads and tied them to their beds.
Fonseca, Caimanque and the unidentified security guard raped the terrified victims in their beds before demanding more money from them.
How old is Edmilson Caimanque?
24-year-old Edmilson Caimanque, of St. Olaves Road, was found guilty of 2 counts of rape and 2 counts of robbery and will serve an 18 year and a 9 year sentence concurrently.
Caimanque asked one of the victims why they worked in s*x work and told them: ‘It is dangerous work, you can die at any moment.’
The women attended a s*xual health clinic the next day where a nurse called the police.
Caimanque and Fonseca turned off the CCTV system before leaving and took it away.
But they were caught because they left their used condoms and their fingerprints were found on the bags placed on the women’s heads.
Mendes-Namdja-Uare was owed a salary for her security work and organized the raid.
Adilson Mendes-Namdja-Uare, 23, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the theft.
Speaking of his trauma, one victim said: ‘I am much more aggressive than I used to be.
Now I have a feeling of mistrust in all men. I used to go out with my friends, now I prefer to stay alone in my room. ‘
The other victim said: ‘On the day of the rape, I had the feeling that if I resisted more, the man would do me much more harm.
“I feel vulnerable on the street, even during the day, especially with men around me.
I have the feeling that someone is following me. Before I didn’t understand paranoia, now I understand how unpleasant it can be.
‘I still see my attacker’s face, I can’t get rid of him.
‘I could stay in bed all day slowly deteriorating, luckily I have my son to motivate me.’
Describing the June 12, 2019 attack, prosecutor Maximilian Hardy said: “ This was a coordinated deputy for both victims.
‘Mr. Mendes-Namdja-Uare played a leading role in planning and executing the robbery.
By bringing in Mr. Caimanque and Mr. Fonseca as backup, Mr. Mendes was using them as executors to carry out the robbery.
“Without him organizing the crime, the victims would not be raped by their co-defendants.”
During sentencing in Wood Green Crown Court, Judge Kalyani Kaul said: ‘These women were betrayed by those who knew they were vulnerable and had only been in this country for several days, in the case of one victim.
“Sex workers are as protected by law as anyone else.
‘Nothing could justify what happened that night, nothing could justify what happened to those women.
‘Looking at you three, I wouldn’t expect your mothers, your sisters, your girlfriends to be treated like this.
Turing to Caimanque, Judge Kaul said:
“When it comes to the theft, you were definitely the main driver, without you there would have been no offense that night.” Judge Kaul told Mendes-Namdja-Uare.
You knew that women didn’t work there regularly, they didn’t know you, you didn’t know them.
‘You told a victim that she had to have s*x with one of your accomplices, this was happening under your direction.
Turing to Caimanque, Judge Kaul said: ‘What possessed you to cruelly degrade these women is beyond me.
“It’s hard for me to understand how you could treat these women the way you did when you never would with your own family.
They told Fonseca: ‘There is nothing I can sentence you to make up for what you did that night.
‘I pay tribute to both victims for the courageous and dignified manner in which they testified before this court. No one should have to go through this type of treatment.
The women offered s*xual services on the basement floor through the Vivastreet website and had only worked on the property for three days before the raid took place.
Caimanque, Fonseca and Mendes-Namdja-Uare, all without a fixed address, denied, but were convicted on February 12 on two counts of robbery; namely, stealing a Samsung Galaxy S7 and a total of £ 1,250 in cash.
