- Woman, 25, pounced on in the dark
- ‘I hit him, screaming: Please don’t!’
- Accused was ‘fixated’ on women
A mum has told a jury how she desperately fought off a sex attacker in Herne Bay’s Memorial Park as the man accused of trying to rape her stood trial this week. A court heard the 25-year-old was slashed as many as 12 times in the late-night assault, suffering deep cuts to her body and bruising to her face. Prosecutors said, 49, of Dolphin Street, Herne Bay, was arrested the day after the attack, which he denies carrying out.
