Rapist’s four attacks on women in one hour

Have your say

A 23-year-old man has admitted carrying out four “utterly horrifying” sexual assaults in and around Doncaster in the space of just over an over.

Natham Bradder of Springwell Lane, Balby, pleaded guilty at Sheffield Crown Court to rape, assault by penetration and two sexual assaults on February 23.

The four sexual offences were committed against woman aged 17 or 18 and started with an attack on a 17-year-old girl just off Cleveland Street at 1.50am.

Bradder then assaulted two 18-year-old girls who were walking together on St Sepulchre Gate in the town centre.

Just after 3am on Cedar Road in Balby, he grabbed and dragged a 17-year-old girl from the street, into an alleyway and onto a field where he then raped her. He will be sentenced on July 23.

Detective Constable Jo Bedford of South Yorkshire Police said: “Bradder’s actions that night were utterly horrifying and sickening; it is difficult to find the words to truly describe the gravity of his offending and the lasting impact it will have on the young women he attacked.

“I am pleased Bradder has pleaded guilty and spared his victims the harrowing ordeal of a trial. I hope they will have some form of closure with his plea, knowing he has admitted his inexcusable and appalling actions that night and that he will now be sentenced for his crimes.”
