Huntingdon: Rapist Jailed For 10 Years

A man's been jailed for 10 years, for raping a woman in Huntingdon at knifepoint.

George Kibet met the 22-year-old when they were both out in the town centre on September 18, last year.

He took her back to his home in Nene Road where he raped her twice at knifepoint.

He refused to let her leave, but she managed to call police - pretending that she was actually calling her father.

During the 40-minute phone call he continued to threaten her with an iron bar. 

She finally managed to escape after the operator advised her to search for letters in the property to discover the address.

Kibet, 26, was arrested and charged with two rapes and false imprisonment.

He denied the charges but was convicted following a trial at Huntingdon Crown Court.

Detective Constable Andy MacDonald, who investigated, said: ""Kibet is a dangerous offender who effectively held this woman captive and raped her at knifepoint.

It must have been a terrifying ordeal for the victim who showed great bravery to call police for help and then ultimately give evidence against Kibet at court.

I'm pleased he has now been brought to justice and the public is protected from him."
