A charity collector was held against her will as a gang stripped and attacked her in an ‘orgy of violence’.

Thomas McEvoy, Lewis Taylor, Michaela Brown, all 28, and Lena Maughan, 33, launched the frenzied attack on the victim at a house in Nottingham.

The woman, in her 50s, was attacked after she had been collecting money for a hostel for homeless women with special needs.

She was stripped and beaten while two of them recorded the attack on a mobile phone in March last year.

The Nottingham Post reports that in a video interview played in court, the victim said McEvoy dropped his trousers, sat astride her and said: ‘Kiss my bum. You know you want it.’

All four were cleared of sexual assault and false imprisonment but admitted assault at Nottingham Crown Court.

Judge James Sampson said: ‘All four of you behaved in a disgraceful way towards an older and vulnerable person.

‘You bullied and hurt your victim, no doubt feeding off one another in an orgy of violence and humiliating and degrading behaviour.

‘She was left with minor injuries and in a very distressed state, which persists to this day.’

He made a restraining order banning the gang from contacting the woman or uploading any image or video of her online.

Brown, of Calderdale, Nottinghamshire, and Maughan, of Bound’s Green, London, each received 15 months in prison, suspended for two years.

The victim said a mobile phone was used to film the incident and feared the footage was going to be posted on Facebook. When they looked at the phone, they laughed, she said.

In a victim impact statement, she said: ‘It made it even worse they took videos and photos of me.’

Sarah Munro, defending McEvoy, said: ‘He has expressed his remorse to me this morning in the cells.’
