Sick Met Cop David Carrick revealed as one of UK's worst serial rapists after torturing & abusing 12 women over 17 years | The Sun

A TWISTED Met Police officer has today been revealed as one of the UK's worst serial rapists after he admitted 49 sex offences.

David Carrick tortured and abused his victims in a 17-year reign of terror by controlling what they ate and who they spoke to.

The sick 48-year-old also locked women naked in a cupboard under the stairs for ten hours at a time and branded them his "slaves".

His sadistic crimes can be revealed for the first time today after Carrick pleaded guilty to 49 charges – including 24 counts of rape.

It also emerged the monster came to police attention nine times before his arrest following rape and domestic violence allegations made against him.

The Met have apologised for not taking an earlier opportunity to capture the fiend, who worked for the force's Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command unit.

Carrick's twisted offending finally came to an end when a brave victim came forward after another police rapist was jailed.

The gun cop, whose colleagues branded him "B*****d Dave", met some of his victims on dating apps such as Tinder and Badoo.

He would flash his warrant card to lure the women into a false sense of security and told them: "I’m a police officer, you can trust me”.

The monster also boasted about meeting the Prime Minister in his role guarding parliamentary, government and diplomatic buildings.

Evil Carrick would appear charming at first before spending time "developing relationships to sustain his appetite for degradation and control".

He forced women to clean his home naked, carried out degrading acts against them, cut them off from family including their children and whipped them with belts.

One victim was forced into a tiny cupboard smaller than a dog crate, while others were forced to perform sex acts until they "fought for breath".

Carrick also controlled how much they ate and when they slept, telling them: “You’re only allowed to eat this much of an apple today”.

The monster would abuse his position in the police to terrify his victims into silence.

The women ranged from a school pal to a previous abuse victim, with some abused at the home in Stevenage he shared with his pet snake.

Another victim claimed she was attacked after she woke up naked and covered in a sick in a hotel following drinks with Carrick in St Albans.

Carrick allegedly raped her while calling himself a "dominant b*****d".

She came forward after seeing another case of a rapist police officer, but the offence against her has been left to lie on the court file.

When officers swooped on his home, Carrick told them "not again" before giving a "no comment" interview.

Police now say more women could come forward after being targeted by the fiend.

Det Chief Inspector Iain Moor, of Herts Police, said: “The sheer number of offences Carrick has been charged with demonstrates his prolific and callous nature.

“Whilst he was not a man that stalked the streets scouting for victims, he invested time in developing relationships with women to sustain his appetite for degradation and control.

“The coercive nature of his offending undermined his victims in the most destructive way.

"He thrived on humiliating his victims and cleverly used his professional position to intimate there was no point in them trying to seek help because they would never be believed.

"It is unbelievable to think these offences could have been committed by a serving police officer.”

Carrick was described as "very persuasive but also manipulative" to the point of being "cocky".

He first served in the Military before becoming a Met Police officer from August 2001.

Eight years later, a domestic abuse complaint was made against him but no further action was taken.

The woman who made the allegation is one of the 12 victims.

In 2019, Carrick was accused of assault and criminal damage but again, no action was taken.

The Met has now referred itself to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

His crimes have now plunged the Met into a fresh crisis after it emerged he was cleared to return to work just weeks after first being accused of rape.

The predator was not even subjected to a fresh round of vetting as a result of the July 2021 rape allegation.

It is the latest scandal to hit the force after a damning report called the Met’s misconduct system “not fit for purpose”.

Met Assistant Commissioner Barbara Gray said: “On behalf of the Metropolitan Police, I want to apologise to the women who have suffered at the hands of David Carrick.

“I commend their outstanding bravery in coming forward and reporting the horrific crimes they were victims of.

“Carrick is a prolific, serial sex offender who preyed on women over a period of 17 years, abusing his position as a police officer and committing the most horrific, degrading crimes.

“He has devastated women’s lives. He has had a devastating impact on the trust and confidence of women and girls that we are working so hard to earn. He has devastated colleagues.

“He used the fact he was a police officer to control and coerce his victims. We know they felt unable to come forward sooner because he told them they would not be believed.

“We should have spotted his pattern of abusive behaviour and because we didn’t, we missed opportunities to remove him from the organisation.

“We are truly sorry that being able to continue to use his role as a police officer may have prolonged the suffering of his victims."

In total, Carrick pleaded guilty to 49 offences against 12 women including 24 rapes between 2003 and 2020.

He also admitted nine counts of sexual assault, three charges of coercive and controlling behaviour, two attempted rape, one count of indecent assault and three of false imprisonment.

Carrick further pleaded guilty to five counts of assault by penetration, one count of attempted sexual assault by penetration and one of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.

He denied a count of rape in September 2020 relating to a 13th woman but the CPS decided it was not in the public interest to proceed to trial on that charge.

Carrick will be sentenced over two days on February 6.

Shilpa Shah, the Senior Crown Prosecutor in the case, said: "With a vast number of charges for rape and serious sexual assault, as well as victims spanning a 17-year-period, this is one of the most significant cases the Crown Prosecution Service has dealt with.

"It was harrowing seeing how victims were relentlessly manipulated; they were financially cut off and isolated from their friends and family and repeatedly raped and sexually assaulted. Carrick took so much from them both physically and mentally.

"It didn't matter to Carrick who the victim was – a new girlfriend, a partner, a friend or a stranger – he would still abuse them.

"Although the names of the women who showed tremendous courage in overcoming this manipulation to report these abhorrent crimes won't ever be made public, they need to be commended, and I want to thank them for coming forward and providing the evidence we needed to secure today's conviction and end Carrick's offending."
