Rapist is pictured hunting a victim.

A RAPE fiend is caught on CCTV, armed with a paving slab, stalking a woman before he carried out a "barbaric" attack on her.

Charlie Pearce hunted online for videos depicting rapes leading up to the "unspeakable" assault.

He lay in wait at Victoria Park in Leicester's city centre having celebrated his 17th birthday in July.

Pearce showed "no mercy" as he bludgeoned her with the slab before raping her twice, Leicester crown court was told.

The woman, in her 20s, came "within a hair's breadth of dying" and has life-changing head injuries.

Pearce was caught after his parents contacted police a DNA match linked him to the crime.

He admitted rape and GBH and was convicted of attempted murder. He will be sentenced later.
