Teenage rapist who struck victim with slab in birthday attack jailed for life

Charlie Pearce researched rape online before carrying out his attack “of animalistic savagery”, in July last year, in Leicester’s Victoria Park.

He denied intending to kill the woman, who is in her 20s, but admitted two counts of rape, causing grievous bodily harm with intent and stealing her handbag.

However, jurors found the “exceptionally dangerous” defendant guilty of attempted murder after he left the victim “hanging by a thread”.

Pearce, of Clarendon Park, Leicester, was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 11 years at the Old Bailey in London.

He was handed seven-and-a-half years’ custody for the rapes to run concurrently alongside his life sentence, with no separate penalty for the remaining charges.

Sentencing the teenager, Mr Justice Haddon-Cave said the defendant had carried out an attack of a sexual or sadistic nature and that he “intended to silence the victim forever”.

“The defendant set out that evening to mark his 17th birthday to

Rapist pirate taxi driver jailed 18yrs

Tendai Rupapa Senior Court Reporter
A 30-year-old Harare pirate taxi driver has been sentenced to 18 years behind bars for raping a 41-year-old woman he had offered a lift from the city centre to Mbare during the night. Tawanda Gwatidzo was convicted after a full trial by magistrate Ms Lucy Mungwari for the offence he committed in October last year.

The court heard that the woman boarded Gwatidzo’s vehicle, which had two other passengers at Simon Muzenda bus terminus.
The two passengers dropped off along the way, leaving the victim with Gwatidzo.

On approaching the Robert Mugabe Square, Gwatidzo turned into the square, parked the vehicle and locked the doors, before jumping onto the back seat where the woman was and raped her.

She screamed for help and street children who were nearby started banging the windows.
Gwatidzo is said to have jumped back into the driver’s seat and drove off with the

Bus stop rapist jailed 25 years later when arrest for an argument with …

A “brutal” bus stop rapist was brought to justice 25 years later when he was arrested following a row with his son.

Christopher Scott, 65, repeatedly punched a 17-year-old girl and tried to kidnap her from a dark street in Nottingham in September 1992 but fled when her desperate screams alerted neighbours.

A month later, he abducted an 18-year-old university student from a bus stop at knifepoint before bundling her into the back of his Skoda, tying her wrists and blindfolding her.

He then drove her to a quiet country park where he raped her twice. Scott told his victim: “All that has happened is we had sex,” adding: “I’ve not been with a woman for two years.”

He eventually freed the traumatised teenager, dropping her at the side of the road around a mile from where he had kidnapped her two hours earlier.

Despite extensive media coverage of the attack at

Island serial rapist jailed at Glasgow High Court

A rapist who carried out a series of sex attacks in the Western Isles has been locked up for 11 years.

Richard Baker preyed on three terrified women during an eight-year campaign of abuse.

The 31-year-old – who denied the allegations – was brought to justice following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow.

Baker was today sentenced having been convicted last month of nine charges including the rape of each victim.

The crimes occurred between 2008 and 2016 at a number of locations including Tarbert on the Isle of Harris and Tolsta, Isle of Lewis.

Judge Sean Murphy QC said Baker was guilty of a “very serious and appalling combination of offences”.

He added the attacks left “a dreadful toll” on the victims – and that Baker had shown “no sympathy or remorse”.

The judge told Baker: “A substantial custodial sentence
