Scarborough Rapist Jailed For Nine Years

Scarborough Rapist Jailed For Nine Years

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 11:33am 12th May 2020.

A man has been jailed for nine years after raping a woman in Scarborough.

Alexandru Daniel Calin, 29, of Crown Terrace, Scarborough was sentenced at York Crown Court after pleading guilty to one count of rape.

The victim had been on a night out in the town when she met Calin, who was unknown to her, in the early hours of Sunday 27th October 2019.

He walked her home where the offence took place.

Scarborough and Ryedale CID started an immediate investigation and he was arrested later that day and charged two days later.

On Monday 11th May 2020, Calin was sentenced to eight years for rape with a further 12-months, to be served consecutively, for failure to comply with previous sex offender register regulations.  He was also given a three-year extended licence.

Two North Yorkshire Police officers, Detective Inspector Jonathan Sygrove and Detective Sergeant John Owens, are to receive commendations from the judge for their work in bringing Calin to justice.

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant John Owens of Scarborough CID, said:

“Calin is a dangerous individual who left the victim petrified in her own home. I am pleased that the sentence reflects the gravity of the offence.

This investigation has been a detailed and thorough investigation by the wider CID team and I would like to thank everyone involved for the work they have done to bring Calin to justice.

No jail sentence can ever undo the suffering that the victim has endured but I want to praise her for having the bravery and strength to come forward and I hope it brings her some comfort that justice has been done, and she can now start to rebuild her life.”
