MUM – of the three who kidnapped a man who was then tortured over a 12-hour period – falsely claimed that he had abused her daughter.
Sarah Davies, 33, alleges that her boyfriend Mark Kennedy poured boiling water over his head and cigarette butts were on his arm.
He was also driven around in his own car with a plastic bag and towel on his head – during which he thought he was “going to die”.
Davies initially asked Mr. Kennedy to help pay for her lip Botox after discovering he was about to receive an inheritance.
But then she falsely accused him of sexually abusing her two-year-old daughter in a swaggering attempt to get ”restitution” from him.
During the kidnapping, Mr. Kennedy was hit on the head with an iron rod and told that he would have his throat cut and buried in the moor unless he ”confessed” abusing the girl.
Davies and a male friend who supported her also tried to get a ”video of confession” from Mr. Kennedy while the victim was beaten and tortured with lit cigarettes and driven around in his private car. with a plastic bag and a towel on top.
The couple even demanded money from his mother.
Mr Kennedy was asked to hand over £10,000 but turned himself in to police.
He had been treated for a wound to the back of his head that had been taped together plus a burn to his scalp and scarred arm left by cigarette butts.
In a statement, the victim, about 40 years old, made a police report. ” During my ordeal, I had to do horrible and despicable things when I hadn’t even done anything and they used what they were saying as an excuse to start hurting. I.
” I was so scared and remember I was shaking every time they entered the room and I kept shouting at them to stop and let me go.
“I had to do all they said simply to give me some hope of escape.
“When they put a towel over my head, I don’t know what they’ll do next. I think they’ll kill me.”
He added: ”When they poured boiling water over my head, I was in so much pain and I screamed.
I don’t think I will fully recover from this experience. I am not being treated like humans should be treated.
“They threatened to kill me and bury me in the moor while I was being chased around – all I could do was think about my family. After what happened, I no longer felt safe. and often looked over my shoulder – I don’t think I would have ever fully recovered from this experience. I’m not being treated like humans should be treated.”
At Minshull Street Crown Court, Manchester, Davies, from Salford, Greater Manchester, pleaded guilty to kidnapping and extortion and was jailed for six years and four months.
Steven Wynnyk, 41, of Oldham, was jailed for nine years after he was found guilty of kidnapping, extortion and assault sometimes causing actual bodily harm. He has denied wrongdoing.
Sentencing the pair, Judge Mark Savill said the charges against Mr Kennedy were ”completely groundless”, adding: ”This serious crime included hooligan behavior and unprovoked threats. , prolonged.
” This is an innocent man who was taken hostage, threatened and assaulted by both with constant threats of violence hanging over his head after he was exposed to complete allegations. completely baseless.
” The completely gratuitous and cruel accusation that Mr. Kennedy abused your daughter in some way.
” I dismiss this as a misplaced attempt to get to the truth because there are claims for money as a compensation.
”This kind of misguided mob that gave justice, if you can call it that, really has no place in our society. What happened to Mr. Kennedy is in the headlines of torture. ”
The court said Kennedy moved in with Davies last June after they rekindled their relationship on Facebook.
Their assault on August 4 last year began when he met her at Wynnyk’s home in Oldham.
Wynnyk initially told Kennedy to go to the ATM to withdraw £140 for Davies to ”heal her lips” but when he got back to the property he started hitting him.
Boiling water was poured over him and he is said to have admitted to the sexual abuse.
Robert Dudley, prosecutor, said: ”Mr Kennedy was slapped and at the time Davies accused him of touching her daughter and being a ‘pervert’ and ‘pedophile’. he was hit in the back of the head and told to take off his shoes and socks.
” Boiling water was poured over him and he was asked to admit to the sexual abuse.
“It happened that both defendants knew Mr. Kennedy had inherited a substantial inheritance from his father and that a razor blade had been put to his throat.
He was then taken back to his car and told to lie on the back seat with a towel over his head and they all went to a cash out point where Davies used Mr Kennedy’s pin to get £60.
” Then they went to someone they knew who told them Mr. Kennedy needed to go to the hospital but they refused and instead threatened to take his mother. Before that, they decided to get a confession video from him and ended up on a wasteland.
” He said he didn’t do anything but they kept hitting him and burning his right forearm with cigarettes. “
Davies and Wynnyk were arrested at their home on August 6.
Officers found the metal pipe with the handle taped to the one used to beat Mr. Kennedy.
She then tried to claim that Kennedy had abused her, but when pressed for evidence to prove it, she admitted: ”I was drinking. Me and my partner did the wrong thing. ”
Wynnyk made no comment in the police interview but later described the abduction of the probation officer as ”an unfortunate incident. ”
To relieve Davies, defense attorney David Thomson asserted that his client was a “reluctant participant” and had been the subject of previous abusive relationships.
He added: ”She played a supporting role in what happened. Her motivation is to determine if something is wrong with her daughter. ”
As for Wynnyk, attorney Michael Scholes said: ”It was a strange and hysterical reaction to the false accusations brought by Sarah Davies.
“There was a misperception that Mr. Kennedy sexually abused Mrs. Davies’ daughter and then general hysteria and he got carried away with it.”
