A RAPIST who attacked a woman and a 15-year-old girl in the same month has been jailed for six years.

Luke Maltby, 18, of Goodliff Close, Huntingdon, plied the girl with alcohol before raping her in July 2010, just weeks after attacking a 23-year-old woman.

Both attacks happened in Huntingdon.

Detective Sergeant Amerjit Singh said: "This was a traumatic experience for both victims who showed great courage in going to court and giving evidence against Maltby.

"He is a sexual predator who preyed on vulnerable females.

"Hopefully the sentence reflects the severity of his offending and serves as a warning that anyone who commits such criminality faces a lengthy prison sentence."

Maltby denied both offences but was convicted following a trial at Peterborough Crown Court. He was sentenced on Friday (January 27).
