UK rapist who preyed on elderly jailed

A British judge has sentenced a notorious serial rapist to at least 27 years in prison for a spate of attacks on elderly people that lasted almost two decades.
Delroy Grant _ dubbed the "Night Stalker" _ was convicted of attacks on 18 elderly men and women between 1992 and 2009. Police say he may have attacked scores more.
Judge Peter Rook on Friday called Grant "a very dangerous man capable of committing heinous crimes" and said the 53-year-old will not be eligible for parole for 27 years.
Police have described Grant's offenses as some of the most "awful and disturbing crimes" Scotland Yard has ever investigated.
The attacker broke into homes, cut phone lines and crept into the bedrooms of his elderly victims during ordeals that lasted for hours.
