Carr provided alibi for Huntley rape accusation

Maxine Carr provided an alibi for Ian Huntley when he was accused of raping a 17-year-old girl, police revealed today.

Humberside Police revealed they had dealt 10 times with Huntley, including four alleged rapes on teenagers, three allegations of having unlawful sex with girls under 16 and an allegation of indecent assault on a 12-year-old girl.

Rape allegation

The rape allegation for which Carr provided an alibi was made in July 1999. The alleged victim claims she was raped as she walked home after drinking in a Grimsby nightclub.

Huntley became a suspect because of previous allegations which had been made against him.

Police did not proceed with the case as they could provide no evidence.
