Earlier the same night, the 26-year-old delivery driver targeted two other vulnerable women in the area, the Old Bailey was told.

The defendant, who had a collection of Tarot cards, was recorded on his mobile phone talking about devils and demons, jurors heard.

He told one of the victims “repeat after me, I’m the devil’s child” as he forced her into a sex act, the court was told.
