POLICE have warned residents to lock their doors and be on their guard after a man held a woman prisoner at knife point in her own home  during a horrific two hour sex attack in West Lothian.

Detectives say the 39-year-old victim has been left “seriously traumatised” by the incident that happened around 5am on Saturday in the Deans area of Livingston.

They said the assailant, described as being around 6ft tall with short dark hair and “chunky” sideburns, may have first tried to get into other homes, even ringing doorbells to do so.

Eventually he gained access to the victim’s home in Oakwood Park through what Lothian and Borders Police described as an unsecured door.

He threatened the woman and others in the house before sexually assaulting her, only fleeing at around 7am.

Police had not yet stated who or what ages the others in the house were during the time of the ordeal. Continue reading
