Victim of naked and drunk house guest’s sexual assault slaps his face whilst her cat scratches him

NAKED Michael Missen jumped on to a woman’s bed and ripped her nightdress, after she had allowed him to sleep on her sofa.

He straddled the woman and sexually assaulted her as he tried to kiss her. The woman slapped his face, and her cat scratched Missen during the attack.

Missen, who had been drunk when he arrived at the woman’s home, had previously admitted sexual assault, and this week Fenland magistrates asked the probation service to assess him for alcohol treatment, before he is finally sentenced.

The woman had known Missen for about six months before the incident, he had visited her in a drunken state on several occasions.

“She had made it clear she was not interested in a romantic relationship, but was willing to be his friend,” said prosecutor Scheherazade Haque.

Since the assault, 38-year-old Missen, of Lynn Road, Wisbech, has visited the woman several times, leaving her frightened and upset.

“She feels she wants an apology and to be left alone,” said Miss Haque.
