Pensioner Rapes Boy While on Bail for Raping Another Child

Manchester, England: A pensioner has been given a life sentence for raping an 11-year-old boy in the toilets of the Manchester Arndale.

John Richard Ferrier, 69, was on bail after being accused of raping another child when he carried out the attack.

This is so infuriating! Why was he out on bail? Bail should never be an option for violent suspects!
There are between
200 million & 2 billion
child sex abuses every
year, please pray

He now faces the prospect of dying behind bars after being ordered to serve to life in prison with a minimum term of eight years.

Manchester Crown Court heard how predator Ferrier approached the schoolboy in the toilets of the shopping centre on Thursday, October 18, last year.

After the boy refused to go into a cubicle, Ferrier dragged him inside one and attacked him.

Horrified witnesses who overheard the assault raced to find security guards, who detained Ferrier for 30 minutes until police arrived. However, the terrified victim took off as soon as he was able to escape his attacker’s clutches.

But police officers tracked down the victim with just a description of his school uniform and were able to coax him into revealing what happened after visiting his school.

The court heard how Ferrier carried out the attack while on bail awaiting trial for over the rape of another child. He was later convicted and is currently serving a 21 year prison sentence.

Ferrier, of Ormskirk Road, Wigan, will spend his remaining years in jail after now being sentenced for the second offence.

Speaking to the M.E.N, the boy’s mum described her heartache, revealing how she had allowed her son to walk home from school instead of collecting him up as normal.

She said: “I felt guilty because I normally picked him up but hadn’t been able to because I had been ill."

“When the attack happened he was a lot quieter and we suspected something was wrong but had no idea about the attack until the police came.

“He has been doing a lot better and we are working through it as a family.”

Police believe predator Ferrier may have spotted his victim in Piccadilly Gardens and pursued him into the shopping centre.

Det Con Simon France, from GMP’s Serious Sexual Offences Unit, said: “I would like to commend the victim who with the support of his family and specially trained officers had the courage to come forward and tell police what happened to him.

“He is a young boy who has had a terrifying ordeal and it was not easy for him to admit what had happened. With his support we have been able to bring Ferrier before the courts and he will now spend a substantial period of time in prison.

“I would also like to thank members of the public and the staff at Manchester Arndale as it was due to their quick actions that meant a dangerous man was stopped and arrested at the scene.”
