Man who assaulted and raped woman is jailed for 20 years

A man who violently attacked a woman after raping her, has been jailed for 20 years.

Jordan Taylor (30) of St Brelades Drive, Salford, received the sentence for two counts of rape and assault, at Bolton Crown Court on Friday.

He has also been given an indefinite restraining order against the victim.

The court heard how in the early of hours of Friday, August 18, 2023, police received a 999 call from a distressed woman pleading with officers to help her as she was bleeding and fearing for her life.

Injuries

Upon arrival at her address, they found the woman had severe swelling around her eyes and forehead, blood on her nose, hands and legs.

It was later confirmed that the victim had sustained a fractured left-eye socket, fractured nasal bone and a hairline fracture to one of her fingers.

The victim told officers that she had met Mr Taylor outside Wythenshawe Hospital the previous evening and ended up going back to her address. When she asked him to leave, he became aggressive.

Taylor was arrested on suspicion of rape and Section 18 assault just hours after the incident occurred. He denied the assault and claimed intercourse he had with the victim was consensual.

A few days later, following further investigating evidence, which included a voicemail in which the victim can be heard telling Taylor to calm down, he was charged with two counts of rape and Section 18 assault and remanded into custody.

Bravery

Detective constable Maisie Gilman of Stockport CID said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the victim for her bravery throughout this investigation and for having the courage to report this information.

“Jordan Taylor showed absolutely no remorse for his actions, denying both the rape and the assault to officers when he was first arrested and then under caution when he was being interviewed.

“I hope today’s sentencing can act as some sort of closure to the victim and her family. It remains a priority as a force to tackle violence against women and girls robustly to ensure they are safe in our communities, and I would urge any victims to contact the police in the first instance as soon as possible so we can provide the appropriate support.”

If you or someone you know has been a victim of rape or sexual assault, report it to the police by calling 101 or 999 in an emergency.
