A jealous ex-boyfriend has been found guilty of repeatedly raping his former partner during a three-day torture session – while her two-year-old daughter was in the next room.
Alex Anselmo, 31, forced his way into the woman’s home in Brooklyn, New York, before punching her and handcuffing her to her bed, the court heard.
He raped and sodomized her up to four times a day for the next three days – as well as beating her with a dumbbell and an extension cord and threatening her with a gun.
Anselmo – who is the father of two of the woman’s children – also cut his victim’s feet, severing a tendon so she could not escape, NBC New York reported.
He shaved her head with clippers and stuffed a sock in her mouth so she could not scream.
On Wednesday Anselmo was convicted at Brooklyn Supreme Court of 17 charges, including first-degree kidnapping, first-degree rape, first-degree burglary and aggravated criminal contempt.
