“What your f****** mother deserves” Life for monster who raped mum in front of toddler son


Trevor Lawlor, 32, shouted to the baby before he raped the woman: “This is all your mother”s worth.”

Sick Lawlor went on to bellow at the baby: “This is what your f****** mother deserves.”

He was only stopped from raping the other woman there when her boyfriend returned unexpectedly to the house in Newton Heath, Manchester.

Lawlor, 32, had broken in and woken the first victim while she was in bed lying next to her young son.  

He threatened to slit the woman”s throat if they made a noise and then removed his clothing before his victim”s partner returned.

But he was foiled following a struggle in her bedroom and Lawlor, of Failsworth, Manchester, fled the scene in his underwear and T-shirt.

The neighbour then went to retrieve the baby who was also blood-soaked and appeared to be traumatised and “in a daze”.

Lawlor was caged for life, with a minimum of 10 years, on Monday.

Judge Hilary Manley said: “I am convinced that you have a hatred for women and a need to use, degrade and humiliate them.

“Put simply, I am wholly satisfied you pose a dangerous and substantial risk to the public, particularly women and children.”

She added that “only time will tell” what psychological impact it will have on the tot who witnessed the horror.

Manchester Crown Court heard Lawlor raped a woman in his home country in 2002 in “chillingly similar circumstances” when he forced his way into the home of his victim after he lied he was being chased by police.

Judge Manley said: “This was a campaign of rape and sexual assault against vulnerable women in their homes in the direct presence of their young children, with no effort to spare those children of the traumatic spectacle – in fact, quite the reverse.”

Lawlor, of Failsworth, was arrested in Manchester city centre later the same day of the attacks and made no comment to detectives.

He pleaded guilty at to rape, attempted rape, assault by penetration, wounding with intent to cause grievious bodily harm, trespass with intent to commit a sexual offence and making a threat to kill.

Lawlor was given a life term for the rape and concurrent sentences for the other offences.
