A 71-year-old paedophile, John Watts, who attacked a 12-year-old girl in a bush in a park in Hull, United Kingdom, has been arrested and arraigned in court.
12-year-old girl off her bike while saying “You’re going in the park to do rude things”, was filmed by a group of men who came to the girl’s aid and detained him until police arrived.
The pensioner who has dementia and a brain injury, was filmed pulling his trousers up near the bushes as someone at the scene told him “You’re getting buried. I’m ringing the police to come and arrest you.”
He replied: “I don’t care about the police. The police can come and arrest me.”
Another man told him: “You’re dead, you’re dead. She’s a 12-year-old girl.”
The girl who was on her way to her friend’s or a relative’s when she was grabbed, was rescued after a passersby noticed a “scuffle” in the bushes as she drove by. As she rushed to the girl’s aid, the group of men joined her.
The victim told police: “He forced me to go with him. He was dragging my bike.”
Describing part of the sexual assault, she said: “I tried to stop him but he went on with it.”
It was also gathered that a mix of forensic evidence which was found in the victim’s underwear, is suspected to come from the John Watts who was flanked by three nurses when he appeared for sentencing at Hull Crown Court on Friday.
He was however deemed not fit to stand trial and was detained under the Mental Health Act, with a jury who found out that he committed three of four alleged acts – two sexual assaults of a child under 13 and inciting a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity.
