A 52-year-old man who committed a number of sexual offences last year has today (Monday 19 November) been given a life sentence.

Gary Nathan, of Pottergate in Norwich, pleaded guilty at Norwich Crown Court in May 2018 to two counts of robbery, assault, unlawful imprisonment, sexual touching and five counts of sexual assault – all of which were committed on 9 and 10 May 2017.

Today (19 November) he received a life sentence and must serve a minimum of 10 years before he can be considered for parole.

The first incident occurred on 9 May at an address in Damocles Court in Norwich where Nathan sexually assaulted a woman before tying her to her bed and robbing her.

The second happened on 10 May where Nathan launched an unprovoked attack on a man in his own home in Wellington Green, Norwich.

He assaulted the victim and threatened him, claiming to have a knife, before stealing cash.
