Man raped five women after meeting them on dating site – Match.com
Lawrance raped one woman at her home in Buxton after they met through the website in November 2013. He is alleged to have attacked her despite her: “screaming hysterically and telling him ‘no, no, no’.”The court Said Lawrance used manage two profiles on the site – keepitstraighttoday and straightmanlooking – but was keen to start to talk to women by text message or email.
Smith said: “We suggest that’s because he was keen to engineer a situation where he persuaded women to make contact with him privately by phone or text message or email so he was not being watched by the Match.com website.”Another of Lawrance’s alleged rapes happened in the back of a van on a country lane near Crick, Northamptonshire, in June 2011.
The court heard the alleged victim was picked up in a vehicle being driven by Lawrance, and driven up a track into a field where he tried to convince her to get into the back of the van, where he had made bunk beds.
Smith said the woman eventually gave in and then “matters deteriorated very badly indeed”.
He said: “He insisted that she got into the back of the van and lay on the bottom bed and frightened for her safety she eventually did as he asked.
“He pulled the bed covers over her and removed her trousers. All that she remembers was it was pitch black. She was then raped by him.
“He raped her despite the fact that she was crying and asking him to stop.”
Lawrance denies all the charges. The trial is expected to last two weeks.
