Girlfriend Finds Out That Boyfriend is Wanted Rapist

Mark Wilkinson, 28, brutally raped a woman in her 50s twice on a disused train track as she walked home on June 13.

Wilkinson's girlfriend read about the rape and police appeal information on Facebook. She then realized it was her boyfriend. On June 15, she contacted West Yorkshire Police. Wilkinson was arrested that night.

Leeds Crown Court heard he also assaulted his girlfriend on the night of the incident.

Court recorder Tom Little said, “This was a truly horrifying sexual attack, every woman's worst nightmare." Detective Chief Insp. Jim Dunkerley said after the court hearing "Wilkinson deliberately targeted the victim and put her through an absolutely terrifying ordeal. He is clearly a very dangerous individual who presents a significant threat to women and that is reflected in the lengthy sentence he has received."

During his trial, it was revealed that Wilkinson had 26 previous convictions for 43 offenses including burglary, theft, handling stolen goods and possessing drugs.
