The Sun 1 week ago

A SICK sex beast has been caged today after trying to rape an OAP in her 80s in her nursing home bed, it was reported.

Josh Howarth, 18, was dressed all in back when he broke in through the ground floor window at the New Thursby Nursing Home in Lancs.

Howarth was jailed for six years and nine months after he admitted attempted rape at Preston Crown Court.

Howarth’s plan was disturbed by a carer at about 5am on August 4 and he bolted through the same window he used to get in, sparking a manhunt.

He was arrested on suspicion of attacking the victim, who died last month from causes unrelated to the attempted rape.

Judge Lloyd sent Howarth to a Young Offenders’ Institution for six years and nine months, plus another three years and three months on licence.

He was also placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register and subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

Detective Inspector Jamie Lillystone, said Howarth’s actions were “predatory and dangerous” and it was sad the victim was not alive to see justice being served.

He added: “This was a sickening attack on a vulnerable elderly lady at a place where she should have felt safe.

“Howarth went to great lengths to break into her bedroom and had intentions of carrying out the most despicable crime.

“The only consolation is that he was disturbed by a member of staff, but nonetheless this was an extremely traumatic experience.

“But I hope the outcome goes some way to giving her family some peace and closure. I commend them for their bravery throughout the whole process.”
