Scissors rape fiend convicted

Hector MacLennan

AN evil rapist who slashed his victims with scissors was found guilty of a string of horrific sex attacks yesterday.

Hector MacLennan, 29, formerly of Brae Terrace, Munlochy, in Ross-shire preyed on three teenage girls in Inverness over the space of nine years.

Yesterday at the High Court in Aberdeen, a jury found him guilty of two rapes, four assaults and a sex attack.

MacLennan was also convicted of making and possessing child pornography after 32 photos were found on hislaptop computer and was given a six-month sentence to run concurrently with the OLR

During the trial, one victim told how MacLennan cut her with scissors, telling her he wanted to “feel blood all over him”.

Jobless MacLennan first raped and battered a teenage girl in 2000. Five years later he raped and sliced a pregnant woman with scissors.

In 2007, he assaulted another terrified victim with scissors.

When MacLennan was finally snared, police found 32 child porn pictures on his laptop.

He was yesterday put on the sex offenders register 

A judge imposed an Order for Lifelong Restriction on MacLennan and ordered that he serve at least five years in jail before he can apply for release on parole.
