A rapist who subjected a woman to a knifepoint attack in her own home has been found.

James Donoghue went missing from HMP Leyhill in South Gloucestershire around 5pm yesterday.

Officers from the British Transport Police found the 50-year-old on a train at Waterloo station in London today.

Donoghue had been serving a life sentence for a serious sexual assault when he went missing.

A spokesman for Avon and Somerset police said: “We’d like to thank our colleagues at BTP, in addition to members of the public who called us with sightings of him.”

The Bristol Post has learned that Donoghue was jailed in December 2009 for raping a 30-year-old woman at knifepoint after he broke into her home.

When he was sentenced, a judge ordered that he should spend at least 10 years in jail before he could be considered for parole.

Donoghue was living in a Maidstone bail hostel when he attacked the woman in the Fant area of Maidstone in July 2009.

She disturbed him as he was burgling his second house of the day, days after being released from a prison sentence for previous burglaries.

He took “degrading” indecent pictures of her before sexually assaulting her then raping her twice, according to an original court report.
