A man was jailed after he assaulted and raped a woman.

Jake McMahon, aged 32, from Manor Road in Stockport was sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court yesterday for two counts of rape and other charges including assault.

McMahon pleaded not guilty to all charges but was found guilty after two trials in Liverpool.

Speaking after McMahon's sentencing, Detective Constable Martin Woodhead said: “McMahon was described by the judge as 'a danger to women', 'having shown no remorse' and acting 'without empathy'. Therefore, I would like to commend the woman’s bravery in coming forward so we could put this dangerous man behind bars.”

Detective Inspector Ben Wayment added: “We have a number of specialist departments within the police to investigate these crimes but it’s important that we all work together to support survivors and collectively work to prevent them occurring in the first place by raising awareness.
