Pierre Anglem was sentenced in the Dunedin District Court.

A man raped a woman in her home after threatening her with a hammer in a two-hour ordeal that was described as being like “torture”.

Pierre Anglem was jailed for 12 years on Monday, almost two years after the attack, which he carried out while he was on the run from authorities.

At a trial in April a jury found the 42-year-old guilty on two charges of rape, four of unlawful sexual connection, possessing a hammer and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

The incident happened on August 27, 2020 when Anglem and a mutual friend arrived at the victim’s Dunedin home to smoke cannabis and meth.

After the friend left, the woman grew uneasy about Anglem and texted another friend about the situation.

Anglem pulled out a foldable hammer and told the woman he had heard she was good at oral sex, telling her “you’ve got to give me something”.

Fearing he would hit her with the weapon, she performed a “rough and prolonged” sex act on Anglem in the lounge.

He later tried to push her to a bedroom, but she stopped him, telling him “no”, so he raped her at the doorway, before the offending continued in her bedroom.

Pierre Anglem was wanted by police after fleeing his electronic monitored bail.

Pierre Anglem was wanted by police after fleeing his electronic monitored bail.

He reportedly told her: “You are going to get pregnant to me, they all get pregnant to me.” He also removed his hoodie, revealing his gang patch, the court heard.

Anglem later told a report writer he had a sexually transmittable disease.

Speaking at Anglem’s sentencing in the Dunedin District Court on Monday, Crown prosecutor Richard Smith said the victim described that night as “half torture, half rape”.

Anglem used the threat of force to detain her in her own home, Smith said, and the “degree of violation” was also an aggravating factor.

Smith described the offending as “cruel and callous”, with Anglem spitting at and hitting the woman.

She was left with a dislodged tooth, her hair was pulled out and she had bruising and cuts.

He noted Anglem, who had a history of violent offending, was subject to a recall warrant after cutting off the electronically monitored bracelet before fleeing a drug rehabilitation centre.

He was attempting to evade authorities at the time of the offending.

The charge of attempting to pervert the cause of justice came after Anglem tried to get his aunt to pass a note, written on a tissue, asking for a cousin to provide an alibi on the night in question.

That note was intercepted by Corrections.

Anglem’s lawyer noted he had been exposed to gangs, drugs and alcohol from a young age.

But his attitude during the offending reflected upon those he chose to associate with, Judge Michael Turner said.

He was prepared to act outside the law, and he noted Anglem continued to deny the offending.

‘’Your denial of the offending is an impediment to rehabilitation.’’

Turner said it was clear from the trial that the victim suffered from the experience, and she was not in a position to give a victim impact statement.

He noted Anglem was a stranger to the victim, he was physically larger and more powerful than her, and the offending was degrading.
