Norwich: Man Found Guilty Of Rape

27 November 2012, 16:11

A man's been found guilty by jury of raping a woman after attacking her after a night out in Norwich.

It happened near to the River Wensum at the Bishop Bridge at the start of June.

29 year old Adrian Olley of Woodbastwick Road in Blofield was cleared of one count of threats to kill.

The victim, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, had been out in the city on June 8 and was in Prince of Wales Road at about 4.30am the next morning when someone called her name from a taxi.

She got into the cab, which was carrying the defendant and another woman, but asked the driver to let her out along Riverside Road following a argument between her and Olley.

The jury, of five men and seven women, heard the woman went down the steps at Bishop Bridge leading to a path next to the River Wensum.

The jury at Norwich Crown Court took almost ten hours to find Adrian Olley guilty of one count of rape.

They will return to court today to reach a verdict on a second rape charge.
