 Published on: 30th October 2020   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

A traveller in his 20s has been found guilty of raping two teenage girls after he tricked them into thinking he was much younger than he was.

Barry Price, now 24, used social media to contact a 16-year-old girl from Hemel Hempstead and, the following week, a 15-year-old from Worksop in Nottinghamshire, Luton Crown Court was told today (Friday, October 30).

Mr Matthew said Barry Price pretended to be his 19-year-old cousin to set up a meeting with the first victim last year, who also comes from a traveller family, in Hemel Hempstead.

He said he arrived in a Mondeo with a cousin.

He drove her around, smoked cannabis and inhaled laughing gas.

Whilst in the car, it was alleged he was waving a large machete around.

The jury was told he drove to a field and got into the back, where he raped the girl, who was a virgin.

They went to a relative’s flat where he is said to have groped the girl.

When her sister rang Price, he is alleged to have said she had “run away.”

Price is said to have taken her to his chalet in Gamlingay, where he raped her twice more and got her to indulge in sexual activity.

The next day he dropped her off at Sandy railway station to make her own way home, said Mr Matthew.

All of this took place between October 27 and October 30 last year.

A week later, he posed as a 17-year-old to chat with the 15-year-old Worksop girl on Facebook.

Again, he is said to have picked her up and raped her.

He also dropped her off at Sandy station where she called the police.

Barry Price of St James Close, Houghton Regis faced 11 charges.

In relation to the first alleged victim, he was convicted of three charges of rape, three of sexual assault and one of false imprisonment. He admitted having a blade.

He was convicted of raping the second victim and falsely imprisoning her between November 5 and 8 last year.

He admitted have a blade.

He is due to be sentenced on January 15.
