0_Robert-ConroyA homeless man has been jailed for attempted rape a year after he was told to “take stock” of his life by the courts.
Robert Conroy, 41, said he launched his attack after he took so much drugs and booze he heard voices in his head telling him to have sex with somebody before he died.
He prowled the streets of east Hull in the early hours of March 19 before he attacked a young woman along a footpath.
He was carrying a shopping bag filled with two bottles cider at the time, Hull Live reports.
Prosecuting barrister Charlotte Baines told Hull Crown Court that the victim had been returning home after shopping at Asda in Mount Pleasant when she was attacked.
