Brandon Cox, of the Somerset section of Franklin Township, will be required to serve 85 percent of the term before he can be released on parole. He will undergo parole supervision for life and must register as a sex offender.

Sexual predator preyed on young student in ‘terrifying’ attack as she walked home

A sexual ‘predator’ who lay in wait to prey on a young student in a “terrifying” attack in Cardiff deserved every day of his four-year jail term, a judge has ruled.

Weldegabril Teklu, 32, of Pen-Y-Wain Road, Roath, was locked up at Cardiff Crown Court on March 17.

Originally from Eritrea, he was convicted of sexual assault, Mrs Justice Simler told London’s Appeal Court.

A student in her 20’s was making her way home last year when she walked past a wall on which Teklu was sitting.

He offered her a cigarette and they exchanged names – but she moved away after he asked if there was any CCTV in the area.

Teklu then began walking alongside her and asking to exchange phone numbers, said the judge.

She took his number to get rid off him, but he persisted and put his arm around her.

He went on to kiss her, grope and molest her, the court
