I was raped by sick Mark Gordon who told me 'don't scream or I'll kill your kids'… we MUST find Constance Marten now | The Sun

A MUM has revealed she was raped by Mark Gordon who told her "don't scream or I'll kill your kids".

The woman, 64, was held captive by Gordon during the horror four-hour attack in 1989 – when he was just 14 years old.



The now-48-year-old, his partner Constance Marten and her newborn baby disappeared more than two weeks ago, with police and family pleading for them to come out of hiding.

Part of the nationwide hunt has seen Gordon's past come to light – including that he's a convicted sex offender.

His victim has now revealed her hellish ordeal.

The woman, who has not been named, told of how Gordon came into her home armed with a pair of garden shears.

The Birmingham-born man was living in America at the time, and broke into his Florida neighbour's house through her bathroom window.

He then walked into the woman's bedroom wielding hedge clippers and a kitchen knife and ordered her to undress.

With a pair of tights covering his face, Gordon sexually assaulted and raped the woman while her two children were asleep next door.

The mum-of-two told MailOnline: "I stepped out of my room and he told me not to scream or he’d kill my kids.

"It was over four hours.

"He’d been watching me for months from different places and he had it really well-planned."

The woman said she's had post-traumatic stress disorder her entire life.

She continued: "After this happened it was like my life stopped. I lost everything.

"I lost my home because I wasn’t able to do anything or sell it. I was emotionally just not even there.

"I couldn’t function. I couldn’t think."

After six weeks on the run, six charges were brought against Gordon.

They included armed kidnapping, armed sexual battery and burglary with a deadly weapon.

Gordon pleaded guilty to the attack, was convicted and thrown behind bars for 20 years.

But during the period before his arrest, Gordon also battered a man on the head with a shovel in his own home.

He later confessed to the violent raid.

Gordon, Constance and her newborn baby have been missing since January 5, when they abandoned their burning car on the M61 near Bolton, Greater Manchester.
