A man from Castleford has been sentenced to more than 11 years after an attempted assault on a woman which he recorded on his own CCTV.

28-year-old Stefan Carr received his extended sentence at Leeds Crown Court, for offences including an incident in May in which he seriously assaulted a woman in his property.

Carr pleaded guilty to an attempted GBH assault, as well as two prior assaults against another female victim in other incidents.

The court heard Carr subjected one of his victims to a three hour ordeal at a property on Carlyle Crescent in the early hours of Sunday 5 May, 2019.

The 28-year-old had rigged his home with CCTV cameras which captured the full incident, providing footage which proved a factor in his guilty plea.

Among the offences shown in the footage was that of Carr preparing a noose, which he then hung the victim from.

The incident came to an end after the victim was able to flee from the suspect after he had forced her into a van parked outside.

A neighbour alerted the police and Carr was arrested.

Detective Chief Inspector in the case said:

"Carr subjected his victim to a lengthy and terrifying ordeal and we welcome his sentencing at Leeds Crown Court today.
