Notorious double-rapist Brian Davey has had a court order against him dropped after he allegedly travelled to England and pestered a woman to meet up with him.
avey (29), with an address in south Belfast but originally from Bangor, was alleged to have badgered a woman and left her “abusive messages” on dates between March 20 and March 23 last year.
Court documents claimed while in England the son of a retired police officer met up with women via the dating app Tinder and when one refused he “telephoned and left her abusive messages”.
The Public Prosecution Service had been seeking a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) against him as a result to protect the public but withdrew their application during a hearing at Laganside Magistrates on Tuesday.
On his various dating profiles and accounts Davey has previously described himself as “an easy-going guy looking for the same”.
In January a woman approached by Davey in the Republic of Ireland said she believed the predator had tracked her down.
Davey, using the alias Stew B Dee, had been working in a meat factory in Co Louth during the day and delivering pizzas at night.
Despite working two jobs the rapist also found time to socialise in the town of Ashbourne, even attending Fogarty’s Bar in the town.
Davey was later forced out of Ashbourne and was fired as a pizza delivery man before popping up in Glasgow a few months later.
He was again exposed trying to woo women before reportedly being banned from Tinder in May.
The Scottish Sun revealed he had relocated to Kilmacolm, Renfrewshire, and set up an account on the dating app to try to meet women.
One apparently discovered who he was after chatting to him and blocked him immediately before reporting him to both the cops and Tinder. The account he was using was under the alias ‘Stew’ this time and listed him as 29 years old.
In his bio Davey said he was an “Irishman stuck in quarantine” and claimed to have broken his leg, saying he needed a nurse to look after him.
It is understood the account has now been removed.
A spokesperson for Tinder insisted at the time that they will always protect their members and remove any dangerous profiles.
Davey was jailed for six years in 2013 for the double rape of a student in Belfast.
After he was released from prison in 2016, the policeman’s son sexually assaulted a teenage girl.
He was returned to jail in 2017 after breaking conditions of his licence and was later found guilty and sentenced over the sexual assault on the teenager.
Davey, of Minnowburn Court, Belfast, has become notorious for trawling online dating sites looking for women.
