A teenage ‘sexual predator’ has today been ordered to be detained indefinitely after carrying out a serious sex assault on a lone jogger at night in Worksop.

The 17-year-old, who can now be named as Jonjo Elswaino, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to charges of assault by penetration and grievous bodily harm with intent.

Nottingham Crown Court heard how Elswaino was a ‘sexual predator’ and how he would have gone on to kill his victim if he had not been disturbed.

The offences occurred on 1st April 2014 at around 8.30pm on Eddison Park Avenue.

Judge Pert sentenced Elswaino to an indefinite detention in a secure unit - the equivalent of life imprisonment for a young offender.

Elswaino can apply for parole in three years and nine months.

He will also be on the sex offenders’ register for life.
