London: In a shocker, a senior Metropolitan police officer within the UK was on Monday revealed as a serial rapist after he admitted to greater than 80 sex offences spanning nearly 20 years.
Known to his police colleagues as ‘B*****d Dave’, David Carrick has pleaded guilty to 24 rapes together with a string of other sadistic crimes against no less than 12 women while he was serving with the country between 2003-2020, Each day Mail reported.
What’s much more horrifying is the way by which the 48-year-old humiliated his victim, whom he branded his ‘slaves’.
It has been revealed that Carrick locked a few of his victims in a small cupboard under the steps for 10 hours without food, while a few of them were even whipped with a belt or forced to wash his house naked.
How David Carrick lured women?
In accordance with the police and prosecutors, Carrick exploited his position to lure women and later used to terrorise them into staying silent about his sexual attacks.
At first, Carrick used to flash his warrant card to the victims with a view to lure them right into a false sense of security and tell them, ‘I’m a police officer, you’ll be able to trust me’.
After committing the crime, he would exploit the victims by saying that no one will consider them as he was a policeman.
‘No motion taken’
Shockingly, the Metropolitan Police was told about nine such incidents between 2000 and 2021. Nevertheless, no motion was taken against Carrick because the victims either refused to formally complain or withdrew their cooperation from the police investigation.
Now, the Metropolitan Police has reportedly admitted errors in failing to identify Carrick’s escalating danger during his service that lasted for nearly 20 years.
In accordance with reports, despite several serious cases against him, Carrick was promoted to an elite armed unit, the parliamentary and diplomatic protection command, and even guarding embassies, and places resembling Downing Street and the Houses of UK Parliament.
The force is reviewing all past claims of domestic abuse or sexual offence against about 1,000 of the its 45,000 officers and staff, informed Barbara Gray, an assistant commissioner on the Metropolitan Police.
