Twisted Edinburgh painter who raped two teenagers and urinated on one victim is jailed 

A twisted Edinburgh painter who raped two teenagers and urinated on one victim has been jailed over a string of depraved crimes.

Nathaniel Clark, 21, tied one girl with cable ties and told another she had to be punished during his sick reign of terror.

The painter and decorator branded of this victims “scared posh little bitch” online and told another after sex  “If anyone asks you raped me.”

The court heard one of the teen victims made contact with the other girl because she was desperate for help.

She said he became “extremely controlling” towards her after she turned 16 and had tied her up and found it amusing.

She told the court: “He was actually laughing.”

The girl told how Clark had started smashing up a flat and added: “It was really overwhelming. He was acting crazy.”

He repeatedly punched and slapped her and forced her to punch herself on the head while he filmed her crying.

And during one attack he grabbed her by the throat and pushed her up against a wall.

She said: “He stopped because he said to me ‘You are probably enjoying this’.”

The brute denied the string of offences between January 2015 and December in Edinburgh.

He was found guilty of 12 crimes, including raping both victims, sexual assault, threatening behaviour and trying to pervert the course of justice.

Clark was put on the sex offenders’ register. Sentence has been deferred.
