A man who turned up on the wrong woman’s doorstep to role play a rape scene has told a court he thinks he was groomed for the part.
He said that in early 2012 he joined a chat line called Cougar Shag and was contacted by a female called Jo on her profile. There was no photo posted.
“This person said she liked dominance, rape and role playing,” the man told Maidstone Crown Court.
“After a while we agreed to meet up and role play, it was basically rape. I had certain things I had to say.
“She wanted to create some kind of rape scenario where I had to knock on the door, burst in and say the words ‘where does Jo live, where’s Jo,’ pin her against the wall and after that she said I could do what I wanted, which was basically rape. I could have sex with her.
“This was the first time it had ever happened and it was never going to get to rape. I was hoping for sex but I think I was being groomed. I asked for a password from her.”
On April 29 2012 the man said he went to a house and knocked on the door but got no answer.
“I went back to my car and sent a text and said this isn’t right, what’s going on,” the man told the jury.
“She said knock louder, make a scene and make it look like you are angry.
“I knocked on the door again and someone opened it. I knew as soon as I saw her face that the poor girl was scared witless.
"She slammed the door and I said 'I’ve been stitched up'. She looked pure panic-stricken. I was expecting a wink or a nod but seeing that face the bottom fell out of everything.
“I asked her for a password and she started screaming I don’t know what you are talking about.”
The man said the chat line woman had told him she had a new Fiesta and when he called at the house a new Fiesta was on the drive so he thought he was at the right place.
He said he returned to the house to deliver a letter of apology and the victim said she would call the police.
“I said please do,” the man told the jury.
“I could have been done for rape, this poor girl was scared and I think the whole thing had been arranged. I even felt someone was watching it.”
The man waited for the police to arrive and gave them all the details of his conversations with Jo on line.
“She was hysterical. She was screaming and burst into tears and when I asked her for the password she did not have a clue what I was going on about" - would-be 'fake rapist
When asked by James Manning, defending, if he could be sure the woman who answered the door was not consenting the man emphatically said yes.
“She was hysterical,” he added. “She was screaming and burst into tears and when I asked her for the password she did not have a clue what I was going on about.”
The trial continues.
