Liam Stimpson was sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court on Monday

A man has been jailed for 15 years for raping a homeless woman while he was on a night out and filming the attack.

Liam Stimpson, 24, from Llanrumney, Cardiff, was convicted of two counts of rape and one count of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent on Thursday.

The attack on the 40-year-old, which Stimpson filmed on his phone, happened on 27 December last year in Cardiff city centre.

On Monday, he was sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court.

A jury had already found Stimpson guilty of a separate charge of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Stimpson denied the charges, claiming the woman suggested the filming as part of role play after he paid her for oral sex.

Stimpson’s victim was punched and kicked during the attack under a bridge near Cardiff Central railway station in the early hours of the morning.

She begged her attacker to stop as she was stripped naked, beaten and raped twice.

Videos taken from Stimpson’s mobile phone showed the woman with a severely swollen and bleeding face, her right eye completely closed.

She lifted her hands to her attacker and said: “Don’t beat me up baby, don’t beat me please. I’ve got kids.”

Stimpson could be heard replying: “I’ll tell you what to do. I’m the boss.”

He then demanded she remove her coat, despite the cold and wet conditions.
