A man took out his anger on an innocent man who tried to protect a waitress at a bar, according to police in the United Kingdom.

London police said that they have arrested 32-year-old James Roberts, after being accused of fatally stabbing 60-year-old Aiden O'Mahony.

Now, Roberts has been found guilty of murder by an Old Bailey jury. According to the criminal complaint, Roberts stabbed O'Mahony because he objected to him threatening a barmaid at the JJ Moons pub.

O'Mahony was watching a football match in a pub with friends when they were confronted for no reason by Roberts, who had been drinking and arguing at a nearby table with his father.

Witnesses at the scene said that Roberts was looking for someone to pick a fight with and threatened the waitress.

O'Mahony bravely spoke up when Roberts threatened the waitress, and in response, Roberts lunge at him with a knife.

Roberts claimed that he felt in fear of his life in that moment and that he had used the fishing knife to protect himself. The jury ruled that this claim was a desperate and obvious lie to escape the truth that he had murdered O'Mahony.

He is now facing a life in prison sentence.

An evil man was taken off the street after raping a woman numerous times, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Now, 30-year-old Christopher Moore of Dover, is facing up to life in prison after being convicted of nine counts of rape against the same woman.

Moore previously pleaded guilty to one count of controlling or coercive behaviour and one count of putting someone in fear of violence by harassment.

According to the criminal complaint, the victim moved away from Dover to Kent, in order to escape him, but he followed her to the area and raped her on a number of different occasions.

After she reported him to the police, he embarked on what was described in court as a course of conduct clearly designed to intimidate his victim and make her fearful of further violence.

Chief Crown Prosecutor for CPS South East Jaswant Narwal said: "The victim in this case faced a horrifying ordeal at Moore's hands. She was raped repeatedly by him and once she reported him to the police, he started to call, text and email her with threats.

"One text message the victim received talked about the only way they would ever be apart was when she was with her parents, who were both dead, while another spoke about following her and knowing where she was staying.

"It was thanks to the support of a friend that the victim came forward initially and Moore has now been brought to justice."

Moore was also accused of punching and kicking the woman, as well as threatening her dog.
