Remorseless rapist threatened women with cattle prod during home invasions in Adelaide’s northern suburbs

A “REMORSELESS” rapist who threatened women with a cattle prod during violent home invasions has been jailed for ten years.

Andrew Phillip Lindsay, 31, of Burton, had been found guilty of two counts of rape, robbery, assault, and one count each of serious criminal trespass and theft.

In sentencing today, District Court Judge Steven Millsteed said Lindsay had used a cattle prod to intimidate a mother before raping her while her 8-year-old daughter slept during a terrifying home invasion at Davoren Park in October 2012.

“You engaged in brazen home invasions. You and your accomplices terrorised the victims with weapons, including a cattle prod and stole property,” he said.

He said Lindsay had also used the cattle prod to commit another home invasion where he had kicked in the front door of a Smithfield house where a mother lived with her 11-year-old son.

“In both cases (the victims) were at home alone with their young children. They must have been desperately frightened for their children.

“Your conduct was grave, cowardly and despicable.”

Judge Millsteed said Lindsay had not shown a “drop of remorse or contrition” since DNA evidence pinned him as the culprit.

“Offences of this type are not only an outrage to the victims but also to the community in general.”

He sentenced Lindsay to ten years jail with a non-parole period of six years and six months.
