Rapist police officer David Carrick sent gun-toting selfies to random woman

'Quick read' news summary

A woman claims she had a “bizarre” wrong number interaction with David Carrick – in which he sent her photos posing with a gun.

The woman, who has asked for her identity to be kept anonymous, says the serial rapist messaged her in 2011.

She claims the text was addressed to another woman so she responded to suggest he had the wrong number. But the woman alleges that Carrick, now 48, then introduced himself and sent her photographs.

Two, which the woman has retained, shows the disgraced Met officer posing in uniform and with a firearm. The woman says she has since lost the text messages but, upon hearing about his conviction, decided to speak out.

She said: “I remember receiving this text from a random number addressed to another woman.

“Obviously who ever it was had the wrong number, so I texted them back saying my name.

“Then, they introduced themselves as David Carrick, a police officer from Stevenage.

“He followed this up with two photos of him posing in his uniform holding a machine gun and asked me if he was my type – it was quite bizarre.

“When I saw his face on the news, I instantly recognised him from the photos he sent all those years ago.

“I had saved them in my emails because he was a bit nasty to me and I was worried about any repercussions coming from the conversation.

“Seeing what’s come out about him now is frightening.”

The woman claims Carrick sent a follow up text asking “Am I your type?” after sending the snaps.

The woman claims she replied to say she was from Scotland, to which he replied, “Oh I don’t like Scottish people” – and the two never spoke again.
