A man who put an 81-year-old woman through a 96-minute kidnap and rape ordeal has appeared in court and is now facing years in prison.

Anthony Roberts attacked the woman when she got off a bus in Balham on the evening of February 10.

He took her to a secluded area away from the main road, where he proceeded to rape the pensioner twice.

The woman had to be taken to hospital due to injuries she sustained in the incident, Court News UK said.

Roberts pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and one count of kidnap at Kingston Crown Court, Your Local Guardian reported.

He will be sentenced at a later date and has been remanded in custody.
