A man has been sentenced to life in prison for rape after his victim happened to recognize him at a train station six years later.
Antonio White, 54, was convicted on Friday of raping the woman in Atlanta, Georgia, back in 2007.
Six years after the attack occurred, authorities said White was waiting for a train at a MARTA subway station in Atlanta when his victim spotted him.
‘She was overcome by the moment and began to yell out that he was the man who had raped her six years earlier,’ the Fulton County district attorney’s office said.
Hearing her cries for help, MARTA police ended up arresting White and turned him over to Atlanta police.
The victim told investigators that she had been walking to another subway station in Atlanta in August 2007 when White drove up in his vehicle and asked if she wanted a ride.
She said she agreed because she recognized White from the south-east Atlanta neighborhood where they both used to live.
Authorities said that instead of driving her home, White took the victim to an abandoned home.
