Woman wakes to find sex monster raping her in an alleyway after he followed her from a club

A thug who beat and sexually assaulted a young woman while she was vomiting in an alleyway will be sentenced later this year after a judge called for his mental capacity to be examined by a specialist.

The 22-year-old victim became separated from her mates while partying in Cairns in September 2018 and joined another group of revellers.

She was given a very strong drink and left to sit on a bench where she was followed by Alan William Giblet.

The 28-year-old led her into an Abbott Street alleyway where she passed out before waking up naked to him sexually assaulting her.

Cairns Post reported when she rolled over and started vomiting Giblet dragged her back towards him and punched her in the face twice.

‘He threatened to kill the complainant and told her he wanted to keep having sex with her,’ crown prosecutor Gelma Meoli said.

‘She was screaming out for help and he was hitting her.’

The victim suffered cuts, facial bruising and a bleeding nose and fled the alleyway to find her friends in a nightclub after the incident.

Police used CCTV footage to find an arrest Giblet, who denied involvement in the assault until it was verified by a DNA test.

Giblet guilty to rape and assault occasioning bodily harm in Cairns District Court on Tuesday.

He has a decade-long criminal history which includes several violent offences against women, including an ex-partner. 

‘It shows he has little, if any, respect for females,’ Ms Meoli said.

Giblet’s sentencing will resume on September 7 after Judge Tracy Fantin ordered a pre-sentence report to examine Giblet’s mental health. 

Judge Fantin urged the report to submit recommendations for his case and outline his risk of re-offending.
