A 45-year-old man with no fixed address has been told he is facing a long prison sentence after raping a Nottinghamshire woman at gunpoint.

Nottingham Crown Court heard Glen Roe smashed his way into a house at Worksop through a ground floor window to conduct the attack.

Roe pointed the handgun at the woman’s head and told her from the outset that he was planning to kill her and himself after the attack.

He later said he would not kill her but intended to have a shootout with the police.

“She was extremely brave to go through the court process”

However, he left without discharging the gun, which police later discovered to be a imitation firearm.

Detective Constable Janet Percival from Nottinghamshire Police said: “The attack left the victim extremely distressed and must have been absolutely terrifying for her.

“I hope the conviction will give her some comfort as Roe is likely to be locked up for a significant time when he is sentenced.”

The incident happened at around 4am on August 2.

Roe was arrested on August 5 and was later charged with two offences of rape, a sexual assault, making threats to kill and possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear.

He denied the offences but was found guilty on all counts. He was remanded in custody.

Judge Gregory Dickinson QC warned Roe he could expect a long jail term when he is sentenced on March 2.
