A man who broke into a teenage mother\’s home and raped her has been jailed for ten years.

Neville Williams, 56, broke into his victim’s home and boasted it was his birthday as he brutally raped her.

After her ordeal, which happened on October 1, 1999 – Williams’ 42nd birthday – he threatened to return and rape the young mum again if she called police.

The terrified victim, aged 19 at the time, fled her home in Birmingham and resettled in another part of the country to escape the memory of what happened.

But after 12 years of silence she finally went to police in November 2011 and officers launched a search for her attacker.

Specialist teams were able to track Williams after his victim remembered he called himself by his nickname ‘Crunch’.

After his arrest in June last year unemployed Williams denied the attack and went on trial earlier this year.

But a jury found him guilty after hearing evidence from a friend and the woman’s GP about a change in her personality following the attack.

At Birmingham Crown Court, Neville, from Smiths Wood, Solihull, West Midlands, was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

He was also ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register for life and subjected to a restraining order to protect his victim.
