A mum-of-one has revealed how she was raped by a charming stranger she met on a night out. Hannah Gollings, 30, from Carlisle in England, met Jonathan Corry at a local bar in August 2015.
The pair hit it off, so when he suggested a drink back at his, she agreed.
But 10-minutes after they left the bar, Corry brutally attacked Hannah in a park, beating and raping her. In February 2016, Corry was jailed for 10 years and eight months.
Now, Hannah, an associate at TK Maxx, has bravely waived her right to anonymity to encourage other survivors to come forward.
She told Fabulous Digital: “Jonathan seemed like a true gentleman and I would never have suspected that he was capable of such a horrific attack.
“I’m so proud of myself for going to the police straight after it happened and want to urge others to do the same. It’s a difficult process, but it makes it easier for officers to catch these monsters.”
Hannah said: “I desperately tried to fight him off, but he was too strong. Tears streamed down my face as he raped me.
“Afterwards, I stumbled to my feet and Jonathan punched me in the face. I fell to the ground and he hit me again. Then he threatened to kill me if I told anyone what he’d done.
“I was terrified but pretended to be unconscious so he wouldn’t hurt me again. Thankfully he fled the park.”
