    A rapist from Huddersfield has been jailed for more than 14 years after he kidnapped, assaulted and raped his victim.


    On 2 May 2018, Malcolm Lockwood followed a woman into Linthwaite woodland where he punched her in the face several times.

    Leeds Crown Court heard how the 55-year-old then threatened to kill her and forced her into his car.

    He then drove for hours across the moors to an isolated farm.

    He then violently sexually assaulted her multiple times.

    Lockwood was found guilty in November 2018 of three counts of rape, one count of sexual assault, one count of kidnap, one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and one count of making threats to kill.

    Senior Crown Prosecutor Paul Brown said: “Lockwood subjected the victim to a prolonged and terrifying ordeal during which she was in genuine fear of her life.

    "Our thoughts remain with the victim and we hope that the sentence he has received today is of some comfort to her.”
