Man sentenced for rape in Banbury

Alert message sent 23/12/2019 16:14:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been jailed for an incident of rape in Banbury.

A 24-year-old man has been jailed at Oxford Crown Court today (23/12) after pleading guilty to one count of rape at a previous hearing on 13 November.

He was sentenced to fourteen and a half years; ten and a half in custody, with four years on licence.

At around 6.30am on Wednesday 17 July this year, the victim, a 27-year-old woman, was walking in West Bar Street when she was approached by the defendant.

He told her that he needed her help after his son had fallen out of bed and was unconscious.

After entering the defendant's property, it became clear that there was no child at the property, and the victim tried to run away before he held a knife to her neck and then raped her.

He was arrested the same day as the offence and charged the following day.
