Sick rapist’s catalogue of crimes

A SEXUAL predator was arrested after police hid in an office at a school where he had been trying to befriend single mums.

Andrew Richardson, 31, of Thornton Road, Morecambe, was collared outside Poulton C of E Primary School, which is next to Morecambe Police Station, after parents raised concerns with school staff. Police learned that between June 18 and 19, Richardson had raped and sexually assaulted a woman with learning difficulties and stolen cash from her.

He had also approached two elderly women in two separate incidents.

At a court appearance on October 28, Richardson pleaded guilty to rape, sexual assault and theft.
