A rapist who assaulted a woman in her own home showed “no remorse for his actions”, police have said.

Jordan Taylor, 30, had met the woman outside Wythenshawe Hospital in August last year and ended up going back to her home in Stockport.

But Bolton Crown Court heard how Taylor had refused to leave and police got a call in the early hours of the next morning from a distressed woman saying she feared for her life.

Detective Constable Maisie Gilman, of Stockport CID, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the victim for her bravery throughout this investigation and for having the courage to report this information.

“Jordan Taylor showed absolutely no remorse for his actions, denying both the rape and the assault to officers when he was first arrested and then under caution when he was being interviewed.”

On arriving at the woman’s home, officers founder her with severe swelling around her eyes and forehead, blood on her nose, hands and legs.

They later confirmed she had sustained a fractured left-eye socket, fractured nasal bone and a hairline fracture to one of her fingers.

Officers believed that the victim had been assaulted in the living room after being raped in the bedroom upstairs.

Taylor, of St Brelades Drive, Salford, was arrested on suspicion of rape and Section 18 assault just hours after the incident occurred.

He denied the assault and claimed that intercourse he had with the victim was consensual.

But a few days later, following further enquiries and a GMP being in receipt of a voicemail in which officers could hear Taylor giving the victim orders while she is audibly crying.

She was also heard asking him to ‘stop it’ and ‘calm down’, he was charged with two counts of rape and Section 18 assault and remanded into custody.

Brought before Bolton Crown Court this week Taylor was sentenced to 20 years in prison for two counts of rape and assault.

DC Gilman said: “I hope today’s sentencing can act as some sort of closure to the victim and her family.

“It remains a priority as a force to tackle violence against women and girls robustly to ensure they are safe in our communities, and I would urge any victims to contact the police in the first instance as soon as possible so we can provide the appropriate support.”
