A rapist who attacked two prostitutes in an industrial estate was caught eight years after the first assault.
Peter Hendry’s DNA was matched to that found on his two victims, who were attacked in Glasgow in 2004 and 2007.
The former forklift driver was convicted of carrying out the rapes following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow on Thursday.
Hendry drove his first victim in Glasgow’s east end to an industrial estate in Seath Road in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire, where he sexually assaulted her on September 18, 2004.
During the trial, the victim told the court that Hendry “left me like a bit of trash” after raping her in the industrial estate.
Almost three years later the 41-year-old targeted another prostitute on July 27, 2007, at the city’s Glasgow Green.
Hendry drove her to the same industrial estate in Rutherglen before raping her.
Last year his ex-partner Linda Martin reported him to police for assault. His DNA was taken by officers and the Scottish Police DNA database discovered it matched that found on the two rape victims.
Hendry, of Carleston Street, Springburn, claimed in evidence that both sexual encounters had been consensual after meeting the women at a car auction that he visited.
Prosecutor Alison Di Rollo told the court the two women did not know each other and that there was "not a shred of evidence" that they had colluded together.
She said to the jury in her closing speech: "What are the chances of them making strikingly similar false allegations against the same innocent man? That's not unlucky - that is just plain unbelievable."
Hendry was also placed on the sex offenders register and Judge Kenneth MacIver remanded him in custody until sentencing on September 18.
