DANGEROUS PREDATOR: Ten years in jail for Blackburn ‘stalker’ who dragged victims off street and sexually attacked them

Blackburn Citizen: Michael Hamer Michael Hamer

A ‘DANGEROUS’ predator who tried to rape a woman and sexually assaulted a teenage girl has been sent to prison for 10 years.

Michael Hamer, of Blackburn, ‘stalked’ his victims, who were walking alone, before dragging them off the street, putting his hand over their mouths to stop them screaming and then attacking them in bushes.

While police were investigating the first assault on the 13-year-old girl, the 26-year-old pounced on his second victim as she walked to a relative’s house.

Both were left ‘terrified’ by their ordeals.

DC Dan Perkins said what Hamer did to his victims was ‘every woman’s worst nightmare’.

He said it was also possible the defendant had done similar things to other women who had not yet come forward.

The first assault happened as the teenager walked along Whalley New Road at around 8.30pm on September 13 last year.

MORE TOP STORIES:

PC Perkins said Hamer followed the youngster for a while, before approaching her near Perry’s Garage.

She was dragged into some bushes where he attacked her.

The second incident happened as Hamer’s 25-year-old victim walked along Norbreck Close at around 4.15pm on October 16.

After following her for some time, he grabbed her, dragged her into undergrowth on wasteland and tried to rape her.

The woman bravely fought off her attacker, hitting him and managing to scratch his chest.

As she struggled with him, a young boy came past, causing Hamer to flee the scene.

Police launched an investigation and the defendant was spotted on CCTV. Officers also picked up clothing which he had dumped as he made his way home to Walsh Street following the attack.

The self-employed gardener was arrested a few days later and he later pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault on a child and attempted rape.

Judge Jonathan Gibson, sitting at Burnley Crown Court, handed him an extended sentence, which means he will spend 10 years behind bars before spending another eight on licence.

The defendant had previously been charged with raping a 17-year-old girl in Blackburn in June 2008, but he was cleared by a jury.

Speaking after the sentence, DC Perkins said: “Hamer was certainly a dangerous person to have in public and there may be other victims that have not come forward.

“He was prepared to stalk his victims and he was willing to abduct them off the street.

“Even if you take a person off the path they are walking on for a short period of time, that is still an action of abduction.

“Hamer had the intention to commit serious sexual offences on young girls and women. It is a woman’s worst nightmare.

“He chose petite women to make his offences easier. He dragged them off into bushes with his hand over their mouths on both occasions.

“They must have been absolutely terrified.

“I am very happy with the sentence. It is a big plus for making the streets safer.”

10 years of tax payers money spent on this scum living a life of comfort...

warm room,
no bills to pay,
no taxes to pay,
no cooking to do,
no mortgage to pay,
free sky / tv,
at least 3 meals a day,
no laundry,
and so on.... all catered for.

He'll be out in 5 no doubt for so called 'good behaviour'. Why spend money 'looking after' this sad excuse for a human.... when other law abiding folk are finding it difficult to sustain themselves on a daily basis ?

He'll do the same again when he's out and the whole rigmarole repeats itself.

Why not just do the decent thing (which I'm sure the vast majority want but too scared to say it because they'll be hammered down by the so called ultra liberal namby pambys)....... we all know what i am getting at.

You seem to paint a bleek picture of our prisons, like they are somewhere no-one would ever want to be, as though they were designed to prevent reoffending. What desert island have you been living on. It's Butlins with bars, where inmates get three square meals, TV rights, games stations in cells, access to gyms and in some, swimming facilities. No doubt he'll even get to go shopping soon on day release, offering the chance to leg it or reoffend whilst picking up his Christmas shopping that he has previously ordered on line from the comfort of his cell.

Sorry to disillusion you but..
This man is a rapist!
He cannot show his face out of a cell door, without it being slashed by another inmate. Therefore he is going to seek protection, under rule 45 of prison rules, and stay there, for the full term of his time.

as it goes some way, to explaining the why, that your comment, isn't true.
Your comment, epitomises why, prisons are no longer the deterrent that they formerly were.
I am sure that I read somewhere, that they aren't going to let people like him, near an open prison, after the debacle of recent weeks. So that idea is, a non-starter.
But, in some perverse sense of pleasure, I hope that he does 'escape', and that I meet him...
My wrath, cannot be assuaged, by the froth of his drowning bubbles...

I've grand-children, equally so.

Therefore, as a parent/grandparent, I feel a certain sense of moral outrage, when such paltry sentences are handed down.
The Law doesn't allow me to seek out this Judge, and give him, a right duffing up, for being so stupid, as to pass this 10 years, where 'Life' seems more appropriate.
All I can do is, vent my spleen here, and by that, hope to glean some empathy with you.
Much as I have read about the Gulags, the places like Bergen-Belsen, the graphic terms of Leon Wells, in the road to Janowska, even Robin Island, or even the words of Henri Charriere, in Papillon, I could, in an heartbeat, wish him less of those lives.
May your Gods forgive me, for wishing him, ill.
He deserves no less of it.

Don't misunderstand me for a second, I'd cheerfully pull the trigger on this scroat. But to those who speak of sky tv, gyms etc etc in prison, whilst I accept it's true those items are present it's the sheer inability to choose that's the thing.

When I say choose, I mean choose about your liberty. Liberty has gone in prison, a badic requirement of normal living.

No amount of sky tv, gyms etc replaces liberty.

No I've not been inside, but have read Jeffrey Archers fascinating prison diaries which back up completely what I've said.

Read them and see for yourselffif you dare.

Ten, long and lonely years,

10, long, lonely and boring years of it.
Watch out for those leap years.

It's been really interesting reading peoples comments on this and seeing peoples views of how to dish out justice.

For the people bravely hinting at a death penalty don't forget with appeals and retrials prisoners in America stay on death row for 20+ years, so that's not some tax saving option by any means. Without appeals and retrials we run the horrible risk of executing an innocent person (happened before) and I doubt anybody is barbaric enough to risk that. Granted in a case where a confession is given it is different but I still don't see it as an option.

That leaves how long is an acceptable sentence, most of the comments on here are either "that's not long enough" or "why are we paying for his easy 10 years". It does seem as though we can't win in this situation.

As for the racism comments, I have stopped my phone loading images to speed up page load times. I didn't see what colour this person was, I just read about a scumbag!
