Pedophile Who Kidnapped & Raped Schoolgirl Attacked Within SECONDS of Landing in Jail
Notorious child rapist Kadian Nelson needs plastic surgery following 'targeted' attack
A pedophile, who was the subject of a public manhunt last year when he was caught raping a child on a London street, has been attacked by his fellow inmates within seconds of arriving in prison.
The "targeted" attack has left 27-year-old Kadian Nelson hospitalized and in need of plastic surgery due to the extent of his injuries.
Photos and videos of Nelson went viral across social media last year after he was caught raping a 13-year-old girl he had kidnapped while she was on her way to school.
He was caught attacking the young girl down a sidestreet by a woman who filmed the confrontation on her phone and managed to rescue the girl before Nelson fled.
The video and images of the incident quickly spread online, triggering a public manhunt after Nelson was identified and his Mitcham area address was published online.
Nelson admitted to attacking the child and pleaded guilty to charges of kidnap, rape, and making a threat to kill, at Kingston Crown Court on Monday.
Just hours after being convicted, he was taken to Wandsworth prison in South London where another inmate set on him within seconds of walking into the facility, causing serious injuries that required plastic surgery.
"It was a brutal attack by a prisoner who had arrived in the same van," a source told The Sun.
"Everyone knew what he had done.
"It was clearly targeted."
On November 3 last year Nelson followed a 13-year-old before creeping up behind her and putting one hand over her mouth and another on her head.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said Nelson also threatened to kill the girl and forced her to walk towards an alleyway in Mitcham, just after 7 am.
He told her to take off her coat and school blazer before sexually assaulting her, then put his own jacket on the victim.
Police were alerted when a woman called 999 saying her daughter had seen a man grab a young girl.
When one of the woman's relatives interrupted Nelson, he told her the victim was his sister, the CPS said.

The case was widely shared on social media at the time.
Furious local residents were told not to take the law into their own hands after angry groups gathered at addresses in the area.
A Prison Service spokesperson told The Sun: "A prisoner was treated in hospital for an injury to his cheek – police are investigating."
Nelson is due to be sentenced at Kingston Crown Court on August 13.
