Carney, a career criminal with 47 previous convictions, knocked on the property’s door shortly before 7am on March 1 when he was in a “scruffy and chaotic” state.
He had no shoes, blood was bleeding from both ears, and he heard it himself.
When the mother opened the door, he pushed her in and locked it, then asked her if she had a boyfriend, Wales Online reported.
Fearing her sleeping 14-year-old daughter, she begged him to stay downstairs with her.
However, she then launched a frantic attack. Her screams woke her daughter, who immediately called police to tell them what had happened “horribly”.
Afterwards, Carney entered the female student room naked and molested each victim in person, repeatedly telling them to call him “husband”.
Police then arrived and arrested Carney, who admitted he had taken the “zombie drug” Spice. He later told police he had no recollection of the horrific attack.
Both victims were treated in hospital.
Carney later pleaded guilty to 13 felonies, including six counts of rape, two counts of penetrative assault, two counts of actual bodily harm, attempted rape and a crime with intent to commit a sexual offence.
The accused, Rumney, from Cardiff, was jailed for life with a minimum term of 10 years at Cardiff Crown Court today.
Heartbreaking victim impact statements from two victims were read aloud this afternoon.
She was forced to leave the “beautiful house”, her mother said.
“I haven’t slept through the night since the attack,” she said.
“I have nightmares and flashbacks a lot during the day.”
The teenager said she now sleeps with a hammer under her pillow.
“I had horrible nightmares, the attack repeated and I could hear my mum screaming,” she said.
“I used to be always happy, smiling, joking. I lost all trust in people.”
Relief Christofries said Carney was “full of guilt” and “disgusted” with himself.
But Judge Tracey Lloyd-Clarke called it “dangerous” and said the attack was “intentionally sadistic and unquestionably intended to satisfy his perverted sexuality.”
