Man formerly of Carlton Hill jailed for violently attacking woman before bludgeoning male with imitation handgun


A violent rapist has been jailed after he after sexually assaulted a woman before bludgeoned a man with an imitation.

Lukasz Feliks, 40, raped and strangled the woman on March 15, 2023 at an address in Nottingham before confronting another man outside.

Feliks was holding an imitation handgun as he ran towards the man and struck him repeatedly over the head it.

As he was arrested by armed police a short time later, he admitted attacking the man and claimed the victim was lucky he didn’t ‘chop him up.’

The gun was later found to be an imitation weapon and Feliks was remanded into custody.

While awaiting trial, he then sent a series of letters to the woman he raped urging her not go give evidence at his trial.

Feliks, formerly of Carlton Hill, denied charges of rape, sexual assault and intentional strangulation but was found guilty last week by a jury at Nottingham Crown Court.

He admitted to assault occasioning actual bodily harm and was also convicted of possessing an imitation firearm, and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

He was sentenced on Friday to a total of 12-and-a-half years in prison.

Detective Constable Melissa Brown, an officer specialising in rape and serious sexual assault offences at Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Feliks committed an appalling act of sexual violence that left his victim in fear of her life.

“He then caused a similar level of fear to the second victim in this case as he ran towards him holding what looked like a real firearm.

“He is very clearly a dangerous and violent criminal and I am pleased he will now spend a very significant amount of time in jail.

“The woman he raped has shown considerable courage in this case and was absolutely determined to see this case through to its conclusion – despite Feliks’s best efforts to dissuade her.

“My colleagues and are full of admiration for her and hope this sentence will come as some comfort to her in the months and years ahead.”
