A man had been jailed for 22 years after being tricked into the home of a vulnerable woman in Salford before he sexually assaulted her.

35-year-old Brian Brough, without a permanent address, attacked his victim in the Little Hulton area on March 19, 2021.

He entered her home after asking to use her toilet. He walked into her living room, told the woman he was an escort, and asked if she would pay for sex with him.

When she said no, Brough subjected her to violent sexual assault, in which she lost consciousness several times.

When she regained consciousness, she was unable to call for help as her glasses and phone were missing. Her neighbors later alerted police.

She was treated at the hospital for several injuries, including bone fractures.

Brough was arrested on March 25, 2021 and was subsequently charged with vaginal rape, oral rape, attempted anal rape, burglary with assault and Section 18 assault.

He was later convicted and convicted at Minshull Street Crown Court.

Detective Leanne Jackson of the GMP said:

“This was a horrific and persistent physical and sexual assault on a vulnerable woman, and no one should ever be forced to feel insecure or in danger in their own home.

“During the interview and the trial, Brough would not take any responsibility for his sadistic and disgusting actions, forcing his victim to undergo the horrific trial in court.

“He did not even have the decency to attend his trial and face his actions and instead refused to get out of his prison cell as the trial was to be heard in his absence.

“His lack of remorse perfectly sums up who he is as a human being, and fortunately we have now been able to remove him from the street for 22 years and prevent him from causing further harm to more women.

“I would like to thank the woman’s neighbors who quickly alerted the police and got her to the hospital for the emergency medical treatment she needed.

I would also like to commend her bravery and strength throughout the investigation and trial, as her determination to see this through has ensured that we were able to secure a substantial conviction today. “
