A 23-year-old who committed 14 offences in just four hours has been described as “a very serious danger to the public”.

Judge Stephen Holt made the comment as he sentenced Jake Killick, from Thetford and of no fixed abode, to a life sentence with a minimum term of 11 years and 14 days before being considered for parole.

It followed a trial held at Norwich Crown Court on January 24 where Killick was found guilty of rape, two counts of sexual assault, one count of assault by penetration, one count of false imprisonment, one count of committing an offence with intent to commit a sexual offence and three counts of robbery - all of which were committed between 4.30am and 7.38am on March 30 2017.

Detective Inspector Chris Burgess, from Norwich CID, said: “Killick went on a horrid crime spree which significantly impacted on the lives of his victims. I would like to commend them on their bravery and commitment in achieving this conviction.

“These horrendous crimes will undoubtedly stay with them for a long time and I hope today’s sentence offers them a form of closure in what has been a very difficult time.

“I’ve never seen a series of crimes, so serious in nature, committed in such a short space of time. Killick’s actions on that day are inexcusable and the public should feel safer now he is behind bars.

“This case shows how the community, including businesses, can come together to bring violent offenders to justice, and I would like to thank them for their help in securing a positive outcome.”
