In the second instalment, showing on Sunday 10 December, a sexual predator is captured on CCTV following a victim down an alleyway before disappearing out of sight. It was there that Loui Cadman intimately filmed the victim known as voyeurism and made sexual advances before orally raping her.
Courageously, the victim is seen leaving the alleyway a few minutes later and seeking help of door staff who call the police.
24 Hours in Police Custody goes behind the headlines to show how the case unfolds.
25-year-old Loui Cadman was sentenced earlier this year to more than nine years in jail after being found guilty of rape, voyeurism, possession of indecent images and possession of cannabis. Read the full release.
Male violence against women and girls (MVAWG) and Project Firefly
This episode demonstrates how behaviours can escalate, and the importance of reporting any suspicions or early signs and behaviours. Although behaviours such as cat-calling, inappropriate contact, misogyny, explicit messaging and groping, may not all meet a criminal threshold, they could be precursors for further serious offending, so it is important that we are aware. You can report information and crimes to police by calling 101 or speak to us through our web chat service.
Project Firefly is our approach to give female residents better protection from all forms of male violence whilst on nights out in pubs and clubs. We have reshaped the way our officers carry out night-time patrols and the tactics we use, and officers will focus on that early intervention, spotting those early signs and behaviours of street harassment and challenging them before they can escalate. We are also offering training and support to licensed premises.
Remember, any form of sexual contact requires mutual consent, and it can only be given if the person is free and has capacity to give their consent. Consent can be withdrawn at any time, and no will always mean no. To find out more about what we are doing visit our MVAWG campaign page.
Some of the themes discussed, and content shown may be distressing for some viewers. You can seek support and advice by visiting Bedfordshire Victim Services .
