A SEX beast who attacked a girl while she lay in hospital was back in court after breaking into the home of an ex-girlfriend who dumped him when she found out about his past.
Greg Carnall was put behind bars after he sexually assaulted a 17-year-old while she was asleep in a treatment room at South Tyneside District Hospital.
The 26-year-old was jailed for three years for the assault and a string of other sex offences in 2009.
In June this year, Carnall’s girlfriend found about about his sickening past and split up with him.
Now he faces jail again after breaking into the woman’s Hebburn home when he found she had a new boyfriend.
Carnall, of Stoddart Street, South Shields, pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
He also admitted driving without insurance and possessing cannabis relating to the same incident, and assault after pouring a mixture of water and bleach over another woman’s head in an unrelated matter.
Magistrates adjourned the case for the probation service to prepare a report about Carnall – who must sign the Sex Offenders Register for the rest of his life – and warned him that they will consider “all options”, including prison.
Jeanette Smith, prosecuting, said: “He turned up at his ex-girlfriend’s house.
“She ended the relationship because she became aware that he had been convicted of sex offences.
“He knew she had a male friend at the house, as well as her son.
“He was shouting and smashed the window and tried to climb in.”
Mrs Smith said Carnall drove to the house but didn’t have any insurance to drive the car. When officers searched the vehicle, they found cannabis inside.
She added: “The assault took place in August.
“There was a woman outside his flat, shouting up to a man inside.
“He poured something out of the window and on to her – it was a mixture of bleach and water, though he said he had no idea there was bleach in it.”
Carnall pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual assault at Newcastle Crown Court in 2009.
As well as attacking the girl in hospital, he attacked a nurse who was trying to examine him during the same visit.
He also dragged two women into toilet cubicles in The County pub in South Shields and sexually assaulted them, causing them both to fear they would be raped.
Magistrates adjourned the case until October 17 for a probation report to be prepared. Chairwoman of the bench Margaret Burns said: “We want it to cover all options.”
