He befriended her and, after accompanying her wife to her home in Hammersmith, asked her if he would take him to a nearby bus stop.
As they approached a secluded hallway, Kretteis grabbed her victim’s throat and began to squeeze her, threatening to kill her.
The Brazilian then took off her pants and slapped her.
At one point, the victim asked her if she still had all of her teeth. Kretteis told him to smile so he could see.
He then slapped her again before verbally raping her.
The 25-year-old victim escaped and a taxi driver pulled over before calling the police.
The desperate victim had visible wounds on his face and was bleeding.
In the early hours of December 15, 2019, Kretteis raped his second victim in an apartment in Ealing.
The 20-year-old victim had bruises on her face, neck, and bite marks. Strands of hair were also found at the address.
In February 2020, the results of a forensic investigation linked Kretteis to DNA found on the jacket, the first victim to come out during the fight and dumped in a nearby garbage container.
Kretteis, of Petts Hill, Ealing, was found guilty of two rapes and death threats after a trial at Isleworth Crown Court.
He had previously pleaded guilty to two assaults that resulted in actual bodily harm in the two separate incidents.
Kretteis studied Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering at the best university in the United States.
Kate Shilton of the CPS said
Paulo Kretteis bewitched his victims and put them to sleep in a false sense of security before committing violent sexual assaults.
“The charge included DNA evidence, strong testimony and closed-circuit tapes that clearly show Kretteis at the crime scene.
During interviews with the police, Kretteis claimed that the person depicted in the images was not him, adding that he had never combed a man’s bun.
But his Instagram posts showed something else. The Princeton University T-shirt Kretteis wore the night of the attack was also found at his home.
Kretteis is later sentenced to Isleworth Crown Court
