A vile rapist who held a shard of broken glass to a 14-year-old girl’s throat in Glasgow before raping her was captured on CCTV swigging from a bottle before the attack

A court heard he subjected the girl to as a ‘disgusting and degrading attack,’ according to the Daily Record. 

The 20-year-old is seen walking from a shopping centre in Glasgow where he crosses the road at a zebra crossing while drinking deeply from a bottle.

Ciornei followed his young victim to the car park behind an Iceland supermarket in Barrhead.  

The naive teenager had believed he was offering her help with a flat tyre on her bicycle, but instead the man threatened her with glass and forced himself on her.

She was only able to escape after she pretended to reach into her bag to hand over some money, managing to break free and run home. 

Ciornei was found guilty of rape at Glasgow High Court on August 7, 2016, in Renfrewshire.

Judge Kenneth Maciver said: ‘This was a disgusting and degrading attack on an innocent young girl who was simply out to enjoy a cycle on a quiet summer evening.

‘She was entitled to feel safe, but she was not safe. She was unfortunate enough to encounter you and she was subjected to a violent attack which will live with her forever.

‘Words cannot express the revulsion which society feels about such attacks of sexual violence.’

The schoolgirl had cycled to a nearby Asda to buy sweets, chaining her bike outside where Ciornei was sitting nearby.

As she returned she noticed her bike had a flat tyre and walked it to a car park behind the supermarket to inspect it, shortly before Ciornei made his move.
