A rapist has been put behind bars after he physically and sexually assaulted a girl in a series of sustained, "cruel" and "controlling" attacks.

Kyle Pugh, 19, beat the girl – who is now 18 and can't be named for legal reasons – with the pole of a vacuum cleaner and a video games controller, and even punched her in the face when she received a friend request from another man on social media.

Pugh would dictate what the teenage victim could wear and didn't allow her to put on any make-up over their four-year "relationship", said West Midlands Police.

He also assaulted her on a regular basis by pulling her hair and biting her, lashing out at the victim on several occasions when he accused her – without evidence – of cheating with other men.

Friends and family noticed injuries on the girl including bruises and on one occasion a black eye, but she told them she had head-butted a lamppost and claimed to be clumsy in an attempt to hide the abuse.

Pugh stopped the girl from reporting the abuse, creating an environment of fear and even threatening to kill her, once asking her: "You think you will come out of this alive?".

He would continually check the girl’s phone and social media accounts and the aggressive scrutiny and control made her fearful to seek help.

The girl built up the courage to report the ordeal, however, after she ended the relationship with Pugh and bravely came forward to officers in December 2021.

West Midlands Police's Child Abuse Investigation Team immediately took up inquiries and specially-trained officers supported the girl through the investigation.

Pugh, of Chelmsley Wood, Solihull, was jailed for 13 years at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday (July 8) after being found guilty of three counts of rape, sexual assault, making a threat to kill and coercive control.

He was also found guilty of two counts of actual bodily harm and putting a person in fear of violence by harassment.

Detective Constable Laura Rogers, from the Child Abuse Investigation Team, said: “Pugh’s cruelty and controlling behaviour is inexcusable. He isolated the girl from her family and friends, and caused her to doubt her own mind during his years of abuse.

“When he raped her, she made it absolutely clear she was not consenting, but he persevered nonetheless.

“There are no excuses or grey areas when it comes to rape – if someone says no, then it is a criminal offence and our officers will persevere in bringing offenders to justice.

“Despite him tormenting and terrifying her, the girl has shown immense bravery in coming forward and supporting this prosecution. It’s thanks to her incredible courage that Pugh has received the punishment he richly deserves.”
