A man from Swansea has been jailed for 12 years for rape.
Kalvin Davies, 33, of New Road, Treboeth, pleaded guilty to assault before a jury found him guilty of rape during his subsequent trial.
Davies assaulted the victim by hitting her repeatedly and attempting to strangle her during an incident at his home address. He then proceeded to rape the victim. Later, he locked the victim in his house, with the victim only managing to escape whilst he was asleep.
Detective Constable Sian Evans, the investigator on the case, said:
“Due to the bravery of the victim, Kalvin Davies, an incredibly dangerous individual, will now be off the streets for a considerable period of time.
“We are pleased to see the victim achieve justice for the harrowing ordeal that they have gone through.
“If you have been the victim of any form of violence against women and/or girls (VAWG), including sexual assault, do not be afraid: report it to us now. We won't judge you, we'll treat you with sensitivity and respect, and we'll always put your health and wellbeing first.”
Kalvin Davies will be on the sex offenders register for life.
