Jacob Davies raped 15-year-old girl and choked woman unconscious in Orkney Police Scotland

A man who raped a 15-year-old girl in a public toilet and sexually assaulted two women has been jailed for six years.

Jacob Davies, 22, committed the offences in Orkney between February 2018 and January 2021.

Davies abducted the teenage girl, locked her in a public toilet and detained her against he will.

Court papers state Davies in a separate incident seized and compressed the girl’s neck in the same public toilets before raping her.

Another rape charge against the same girl stated that Davies entered a property uninvited and attacked her.

In an earlier incident, Davies attempted to kiss a woman before groping her over her clothing.

The same woman was also assaulted to the danger of her life.

Davies lifted the woman up and seized her by the neck which restricted her breathing which caused her to lose consciousness.

Another woman was groped by Davies at Stromness Community Centre in Orkney.

He also abducted the same woman who he detained in public toilets at a park near the community centre.

Davies, of Orkney, was convicted of the seven charges last month.

Judge Lord Arthurson said: “Make no mistake, the impact of your crimes has been utterly devastating.
“From the background report prepared, you continue to deny the charges as is your right.

“It is plain from the gravity of the offending you were convicted of, only a substantial custodial sentence is appropriate.
“The normal period of licence is not appropriate to protect the public from serious harm from you.”

Davies was given a nine-year extended sentence which includes six years behind bars and supervision upon his release of three years.

Michael Meehan KC, defending, told the sentencing: “These are clearly serious offences having regard to the number of the offences.”

Davies was put on the sex offenders register for an indefinite period.
