‘The law tend to protect their own’: Warning of A&E nurse to victim of sex monster cop David Carrick who told her to ‘move on’ after she revealed she was attacked by a police officer

  • Victim was told by a nurse that if she complained it ‘might not go to court’
  • David Carrick’s two-day sentencing hearing begun at Southwark Crown Court

An A&E nurse warned one of David Carrick’s victims that ‘the law tend to protect their own’ when she revealed she was raped by a police officer.

The Metropolitan Police officer, 48, appeared in the dock at Southwark Crown Court on Monday, where he is being sentenced for 49 charges, including 24 counts of rape. 

On Monday, the court heard how he brutally raped one of his victims after pointing a handgun at her head, leaving her with external and internal injuries.

The pair met at a London bar in 2003 and he told the woman ‘he was the safest person that she could be with and that he was a police officer’ before taking her back to his nearby flat, prosecutor Tom Little KC said.

She ‘froze’ when he put a black handgun to her head and said ‘you are not going’ before repeatedly raping her, he told the court.

A court heard how Carrick bru

During the attack, Carrick put his hands around her throat and said he would be the last thing she saw.

The woman, who was left with bite marks, bruising and clumps of hair missing, told an A&E nurse she had been raped by a police officer, the court heard.

When the victim attended King’s College Hospital, she was told by a nurse that if she complained it ‘might not go to court’, and that because she was young she would be ‘better to try to put it behind her and move on’, a court heard.

Mr Little said: ‘She was asked who had raped her and she told the nurse that it was a police officer.

‘(The victim) told the police that the nurse in A&E told her that she needed to be ready if she was going to complain about it and that even if she did it might not go to court.

‘She said as she was young, she might be better to try to put it behind her and move on.

‘As a result, (the victim) did not report the matter to the police at the time.’

The A&E nurse also told that victim that this was not the first time she had heard that a police officer had raped somebody, and ‘unfortunately didn’t think it would be the last’.

The victim added that the nurse had told her ‘the law tend to protect their own’.

In the woman’s victim impact statement read out to court, the woman described how ‘that night I had encountered evil’.

She said: ‘For the past 19 years I’ve been lost in my own life mainly due to this one event.

‘I distinctly remember his words: “Come on you can trust me, I am the safest person you can be around I am a police officer.

‘I honestly thought he was going to kill me that night, I thought he was going to rape me and kill me and that my life would be over.

‘I felt lucky to be able to leave the next morning as I didn’t believe that I would be doing so.

‘I distinctly remember standing in the room with the nurse after being examined and having them list my injuries.

I felt ashamed, dirty and sick and was in so much pain. I remember aching all over from the terrible things he did to me that night.

‘The nurse and the doctor had asked me if I knew who had assaulted me, when I replied that it was a police officer the nurse told me that it wasn’t the first time, she had heard this and unfortunately, she doubted it would be the last.

‘She told me it would be very hard getting it to go to court as the law tends to protect their own and that it is also likely that he would know it was you and could make your life hell for doing so.

‘Her advice was to really consider this before choosing to report it and possibly look at getting on with life without reporting it.

‘She told me she had known women who had been in this situation and warned me that once people knew it would be very hard to get on with life without being constantly discredited for it.

‘I do believe she was only trying to help me come to the decision that would be easier for me to live with but after consideration I didn’t feel like I had much choice.’

The court also heard how Carrick was ‘no doubt aware’ that his victims would be unlikely to be believed if they accused a Metropolitan Police officer of rape.

Mr Little, prosecuting said: ‘He was no doubt aware that they would conclude they would be unlikely to be believed if they were to come forward on their own and claim that a Metropolitan Police Officer had raped them.’

Mrs Justice Cheema-Grubb is expected to sentence Carrick, from Stevenage, Hertfordshire, on Tuesday after he previously pleaded guilty to 49 charges relating to 12 women between 2003 and 2020.

They include 24 counts of rape, nine counts of sexual assault, five counts of assault by penetration, three counts of coercive and controlling behaviour, three counts of false imprisonment, two counts of attempted rape, one count of attempted sexual assault by penetration, one count of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent and one count of indecent assault.

Some are multiple-incident counts, meaning they relate to at least 85 separate offences, including at least 71 sexual offences and 48 rapes,
