An illegal immigrant filmed himself raping a mother at knifepoint during a brutal two-hour attack in front of her children.

Sang Tran, who will be deported back to Vietnam, broke into the 35-year-old
woman's house in Birmingham and raped her twice in one week.
The victim did not report the first attack to the police, but on the second
occasion she got her eight-year-old daughter to ring 999 after Tran,
26, strangled her and threatened to chop her up with a large machete.



Vicious: Trang strangled his victim and threatened her with a large machete as her children tried to stop him

Two of her children tried to push
their mother's attacker away from her but the youngsters did not
understand when she begged them to phone the police.
Tran, of no fixed address, admitted rape and was jailed for 14 years at Birmingham Crown Court.

Judge James Burbidge QC said: 'You
dragged her into the house and you strangled her for a significant
period of time to keep her submissive.
'You added indignity upon your behaviour by filming her.


'She certainly was in a vulnerable position, naked and distressed.


'You produced a machete and threatened to chop her up. One can only contemplate her fear.'


John Attwood, prosecuting, said that Tran barged his way into the victim’s home in the early hours of March 17.

He dragged her upstairs, took her into a bedroom and began squeezing her neck.


Mr Attwood said the woman was struggling to breathe but that, on Tran’s
orders, she instructed her terrified children to go to bed.
Tran then removed her clothing and raped her.


The defendant then produced a mobile phone and filmed her as she tried to protect her modesty.


Mr Attwood said he then took the machete from underneath a mattress and that the distressed victim had pleaded with him.


He said he then dragged her into another room and raped her again.


Tran then went to sleep and the woman, who spoke little English, told her
daughter to alert the police. Officers arrived to discover Tran had
barricaded himself inside a room.
Elizabeth Lowe, defending, said Tran had been living 'under the radar' in the UK since 2005, and had been drinking on the night.

      Well if the donor's name remain secret, he can prob save 1 person with a kidney transplant, heart transplant, lung transplant, AND hear this:

  • For those that support the UK gun restrictions; I guess this raped woman's ordeal is better than a dead rapist?

      The woman was clearly raped because of the availability of sharp objects in the country.

      If they outlawed machetes, butter knives, and sporks these things would never happen.

      Even if we had laws that allowed guns people wouldn't just walk about with them all the time like u guys. She could of had pepper spray but she didn't so more than likely if we had those laws there she wouldnt have a gun either. Also I'm glad theres less guns around, if I get into a scrap I pretty much know theres not going to be one about.

      if we do that then we end-up with the same violent gun culture that America has , Bank robberys , Petrol stations, School invasion by armed lunatics, murders by use of lethal weapons, instead of a few hundred murders a year we would end up with thousands of murders through the use of guns....



      State


      Total murders


      Total firearms, 2010


      % change, 2009-10


      Handguns murders


      Firearms, % of all murders


      Firearms murders per 100,000 pop


      Firearms robberies per 100,000 pop
      More..

      So the occasional rape and murder of your women is ok with you, as long as guns remain illegal?

      BTW, what you hear about the American "violent gun culture" is viewed through a liberal Anti-Gun media. BBC, CNN, you name it.

      Guns save many many lives every year, you never hear of them, unless you want to.

      God I'm glad we baked gun ownership into our constitution.

    • @Swellgh that sort of stuff doesnt really happen in the UK prisons.

      even if someone goes down for life which is 30 years but only seving 15, maybe 12, why would they wanna fuck a man?

      UK prisons are seen as holiday camps and there have been cases of people breaking IN to the prisons i shit you not.

      Its more in the US cos they have better sentencing so if someone goes down for murder, its either man ass or no ass ever again.

    • @Paybackman if you read my other comment you will know i disagree with the UK sentencing and laws but if she could have a gun then so could he.

      Maybe it would have saved her, maybe she would be murdered along with her children if she posed a threat to him. Just because someone has a gun doesnt mean shit in defence, just means more probability of death.

      Guns do help but ONLY if you keep them out of the hands of criminals or idiots.

      Ridiculous.

      So She bend over and be a victim? And what if he did have a gun? He could also have a knife and She could be unarmed right? Maybe he has a heavy frying pan and She doesn't.. You can play that game until the cows come home. The bottom line is that British society has chosen to ignore the gross disparity of force issue. That is, a woman (and the elderly for that matter) are clearly at a disadvantage as compared to a murderous thug. They have also chosen the immoral (IMHO) More..

      What's your point? Read my reply to blaze247. Rape and murder will always be with society. The real principled question is do individuals have the right to defend themselves or does the State own a monopoly on violence?

      How many of your police officers have prevented a single rape from occurring last year?

  • there are crimes where you know what race committed it just by reading the info

    there are accidents where you know what country they originated from just by the severity and type

    in this case, all I had to read 'rape' and '14 years' to know this was in the UK

    stereotyping (while politically incorrect)is there because of a reason. People or countries act in certain ways so much when you read bad things about them/it, you just think 'typical!'

    People read this story and it shows just how stupi More..

      I'll get voted down for sure, but may I offer a suggestion? Erase the gun restrictions against your own people. The victimization rate will fall dramatically. There are simply more good people who realize what harm a gun is capable of inflicting. Stop treating everyone like the small percentage of people who cause problems.
