A thug who raped a 14-year-old girl has been jailed for 11 years today (Friday).

David Dixon attacked the teenager in his caravan and a hut near Crown Lakes, Farcet, Peterborough, on three separate occasions last summer after grooming her over several months.

The victim told a teacher at her school about the abuse and Dixon, of Cross Street, Farcet, was arrested on September 18.

The 28-year-old had to be Tasered during the arrest after he refused to put down an axe he had been using to cut wood with and wielded it towards officers.

Following his arrest, he tracked down the teenager and pinned her against a wall, threatening her family if she spoke to police.

Detective Constable Mark Andrews said: “This is a case of a 28-year-old man targeting a vulnerable young girl and taking advantage of her.

“However, she has shown great bravery in coming forward to police and then giving evidence against him at court.

“Dixon is a deeply unpleasant man, who thinks nothing of using violence to get what he wants. We will not tolerate such behaviour and will seek to put such offenders before the courts.”
