UK woman sedated, raped by 'evil' boyfriend in sleep for 2 years

UK woman sedated and raped

A frightened woman has revealed her disgust at discovering that her boyfriend of two years repeatedly raped her while she slept.

Naomi Hampson only found out that she had regularly fallen victim to her sick boyfriend Robert Fryer when police raided the couple's home.

The perverted boyfriend would sedate her and often paint her nails and dress her in jewellery before taking photographs of his revolting acts and saving them on his computer.

"I'm disgusted when I think about what he did. It makes me feel dirty and completely violated. Not remembering anything makes it worse," the Herald Sun quoted her as saying.

"It is so sinister all that time I was living with someone capable of that. He has no emotion. He is evil. And if the police hadn't found out I could have still been living with him. It's terrifying," she said.

Nottingham Crown Court heard in August that Fryer, a policeman's son, has the rare condition somnophillia - dubbed 'sleeping princess syndrome'.

Fryer admitted raping the 27-year-old three times between 2008 and 2011, and also pleaded guilty to a separate charge of sexual activity without consent and was jailed for eight years.

The couple moved in together in Nottingham, having met on a night out in 2008 and Fryer was soon taking advantage of Hampson, who struggled emotionally after her father John was diagnosed with cancer.

Hampson was drinking more than usual but would wake up on the sofa or in bed without any underwear on and sometimes wearing nail polish or jewellery but had no memory of falling sleep.

Fryer was arrested after he told a friend about his despicable attacks, with officers later showing the pictures to Hampson and explaining that they believed he had sedated her.

"My entire life has been shattered into thousands of tiny pieces and my soul feels broken. I hate him for what he did to me," she told the Sunday People.
