15-year-old Ben O’Neill raped an elderly man while high on the drug MCAT and drunk on vodka
A 15-year-old boy has been jailed after raping a disabled male pensioner while ‘out of his own mind’ on a cocktail of vodka and the drug MCAT.
Ben O’Neill pushed his terrified victim, 65, into a field before attacking him, forcing him to perform a sex act on him and then attempting to rape him again.
His elderly victim was unable to fight back as he suffers from a condition which restricts the use of his limbs, Nottingham Crown Court heard.
The judge took the unusual step of naming and releasing a photo of the teenager because of the seriousness of the crime.
O’Neill was jailed indefinitely for ‘public protection’ but must serve at least three-and-a-half years behind bars after a judge heard the drunk and drug-crazed teenager had subjected his victim to the sickening ten minute assault on August 4, saying ‘We’re going to have some fun together.’
He pleaded guilty to three serious sexual assault charges, plus two charges of robbery and charge of theft.
Hours earlier, O’Neill and an accomplice had been involved in the robbery of a mobile phone from a 24-year-man.
The robbery occurred on the site of the old Sherwood Colliery when the pair, who were part of a larger group, followed the 24-year-old. The first male – who was never identified – hit the victim around the head with a bottle before O’Neill grabbed him in a bear hug.
The victim fell to the floor and was kicked unconscious, although he recalled O’Neill ordering the other perpetrator to stop because the victim was disabled. The victim later woke up and realised his mobile phone and keys were missing.
The next morning, O’Neill was part of a group who entered Cox’s Supermarket in Mansfield Woodhouse at around 6.30am, with O’Neill stealing a bottle of vodka.
