A mother has told of the moment she woke up to find her neighbour raping her – while filming the horrifying attack on his mobile phone.
Jessica McDonald – who has waived her right to anonymity – was completely naked and discovered friend Glen Mills on top of her when she woke up on his sofa bed.
Mills used the flash on his phone to take videos and pictures while the 22-year-old single mother was asleep.
Ms McDonald said she screamed for Mills to get off and she tried to push him away but he ignored her pleas.
And today, after her attacker was jailed for six years, she has spoke out about her ordeal in a bid to help other victims.
Ms McDonald, mother to Finlay, three, said: ‘What has happened has affected me massively, but I am really glad I went to the police and got justice.
‘I want to warn other girls to be on guard. This kind of thing can happen to anyone. Going to the police can be scary, and I know victims might worry they will not be believed.‘The police do take attacks like these very seriously. Now Glen has been jailed I feel like I can in some way move on.’
Ms McDonald, of Walker, in Newcastle, had visited Mills, 31, at his home for a catch-up and a drink.
But after having two drinks she fell asleep and woke up naked on his sofa bed where he was attacking her.
Eventually she found the strength to get up and run back to her home next door, where she collapsed on her living room rug and broke down in tears before calling the police.
‘When I woke up I was fully naked and my clothes were down to the left hand side of me.‘I was aware of what was happening but I couldn’t do anything about it.‘I kept moving and told him to stop but he still kept going.‘I was in shock but I knew I had to get him off me. I couldn’t as he was bigger than me and stronger than me.‘Afterwards he was sitting there as if nothing had happened. I felt horrible, it made me feel vile.’
Mills was arrested. He later denied two charges of rape but changed his pleas to guilty on the day of the trial after being told about the video evidence.
Ms McDonald said:
‘I remembered seeing a flash on his phone so I told the police to take his phone as I thought there may have been some pictures on it.‘The police told me he had taken three videos, I felt absolutely sick.‘I was asleep during the videos. What was he going to do with it.’‘I hate him for what he has done.‘I still remember it like it was yesterday.‘He was in a relationship so I never expected him to be like that.‘Now I can’t go anywhere near men because I don’t trust them. I am concentrating on Finlay and being the best mum I can be.‘I am glad Glen is in prison now and cannot hurt anybody else. I am looking forward to a fresh start in 2016.’
