A mobile disco entertainer called ‘DJ Elvis’ raped a young girl on the mattress in the back of his works van over two decades ago, a court heard today.
Graham Horrix, 59, had a collection of porn and a quantity of condoms as well as his music equipment in the vehicle, the jury were told.
The father-of-two, of Priestwood Avenue, Bracknell, Berkshire has pleaded not guilty of two counts of raping the girl when she was aged between four and fourteen years-old.
He also denies three counts of indecently assaulting the girl in the Clapham area of south-west London.
The counts relate to a ten-year span between 1989 and 1999 and Horrix appeared in the dock at Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court sporting a seemingly dyed-black Elvis-style quiff.
The complainant, now aged 31 years-old, told the court he also raped her on the bathroom floor of the house he was staying at.
“He’d always entice me and say: ‘Let’s listen to some music.’
“He would always put music on first, silly songs like: ‘I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts.’
“He boasted about other females and said they had sex in the van and asked me if I was jealous, saying: ‘You’re not my only special girl.’
“He had his deejay equipment and mattress in the back of the van and porn and condoms.
“He’d get the porn magazines out and had these porn playing cards and make me look through the whole packet.”
Prosecutor Miss Corinne Bramwell said the first incident occurred in the toilet block near Horrix’s seaside caravan.
“He touched her chest and put his hand inside her knickers.
“He touched her and kissed her on the mouth and forced his tongue into her mouth when they were alone in the caravan.
“When she was alone in the van Mr. Horrix used that opportunity to sexually abuse her and she describes wanting to scream, but being too frightened to do so.”
He also encouraged the girl to wash his hair, added Miss Bramwell : “He’d splash water on her and suggest she took her top off and would touch her breasts.”
Horrix also forced her to give him oral sex, the jury were told. “She says she was scared and in fear during this period of her life.”
During the van rape he told her: “You’re a big girl now,” explained the prosecutor.
“He was rough, she says. Pulling her jeans down, pushing her legs apart and raping her.”
The second rape occurred in Horrix’s bathroom, said Miss. “He forced her to straddle him and forced her down onto him.
“She says it was very painful.”
The woman reported Horrix to the police in March, 2015, explaining: “I wasn’t the only one it happened to. There could be a lot of other people out there.”
