Paramedic guilty of rape on callouts

Breach
of trust:

A FORMER paramedic has been convicted of raping two women — while on duty — and twice sexually assaulting a girl aged under 13.

Andrew Wheeler was called out to help one of the victims when she was intoxicated at a friend’s house in September 2018.

After telling colleagues he had the situation under control, he took her to her home before attacking her.

Wheeler was arrested when the victim told a friend — and the other woman he had targeted while at work then came forward. He raped her in 2009 and sexually assaulted her in the back of an ambulance in April 2010.

Wheeler’s attacks on the young girl — not linked to his work — took place between December 2013 and May 2014.

The 46-year-old, from Warboys, Cambridgeshire, was remanded to be sentenced at Peterborough crown court next month.

Det Ch Supt Martin Brunning said he believed the ‘predatory’ worker became a paramedic partly to gain access to vulnerable women. ‘This breach of trust makes his appalling offences all the more deplorable,’ he added.
