A man has pleaded guilty to the rape of two women.

Mateusz Otfinowski, 23, of Lord Street, Morecambe pleaded guilty at a plea and case management hearing at Preston Crown Court this morning, Tuesday, October 21.

The offences relate to the rape of a woman on Bridge Street in Lancaster on March 3, 2014 and the rape of a woman on Cross Street in Morecambe on July 26, 2014.

Detective Inspector Richard McCutcheon said: “I am thankful that today’s plea has spared the victims the ordeal of having to sit through a trial and that they do not need to re-live the details of the despicable crimes committed against them.”

Otfinowski will be sentenced at Preston Crown Court on Friday, December 12.
