A LYING love rat with “dark, violent sexual fantasies” has been found guilty of serious attacks on women.

Neil Scott-O’Connor fantasised about rape and having sex with women while they were unconscious.

He cheated on three women, and tried to act out his choking fantasies on two women.

The 23-year-old appliance repair man had searched the internet for “is choking someone during sex normal?”

He denied two choking charges, assaults, and making death threats, but was found guilty by a jury.

They found him guilty of six offences against a 29-year-old woman, and three against a 17-year-old woman.

Richard Hearnden, prosecuting, said Scott-O’Connor, of Partridge Green, had cheated on the women and sent “nasty” abusive messages.

He said the defendant would make the comments or send messages to “grind down” the confidence of the women and make them obedient.

The women, who can’t be identified for legal reasons, described how Scott-O’Connor had strangled them during sex, and covered them in unwanted love bites to “tag” them.

One of the underage women said she had gone to his home, where he had given her wine, and put on a horror film depicting rape and murder scenes.

He had told her he wanted a relationship, despite already being in two.

Meanwhile the second woman said she was accused of flirting with other men, and found out Scott O’Connor was already in a relationship.

But he turned the tables and accused her of cheating and lying.

She alleges Scott-O’Connor hit her head with a car door in a car park in Brighton, then later attempted to choke her during sex.

He also struck her with a wine glass to the head, pulled her hair, and punched her twice, the court was told.

Mr Hearnden described how Scott O’Connor later bombarded the woman with threats. 

It was alleged he had an ice pick which could cut through butter and told the woman: “Imagine what it could do to your skull.”

Scott O’Connor made threats to drown her, torch her home, shoot her, bury her alive, and rape her, Mr Hearnden said.

But Scott-O’Connor denied all the charges, saying that he did not strangle the women or attack them, and said the love bites were consensual.

He said: “I was a bit of a player, I was childish I admit that. I am not a sexist or a misogynist.”
