10 years 
 jail for knifepoint rape of a churchgoer

Her attacker, who cannot be identified for legal reasons ?

A rapist who carried out a knifepoint attack on a woman after she had been to church has been jailed for seven and a half years.

The woman, who was in her 40s at the time, was pulled off the street, dragged down an alleyway and subjected to a horrific ordeal on waste ground in Stotfold, Bedfordshire, in October 1992.

Her attacker, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was arrested last year after a DNA sample he gave when arrested for a minor offence in the North of England matched one obtained from the rape scene and put on the national database when it was launched in 1995.

The man hung his head and sobbed as Luton Crown Court heard he told the devout Christian: “Don’t make any noise or I will slit your throat” several times during the ordeal, which lasted more than five minutes and left her bloodied and bruised.
