Man denies violent sex assault
A TEENAGER was "caught red-handed" carrying out a violent sex attack, a court heard.
Izaac Webb, of Bedminster, denies three charges of rape and one of inflicting grievous bodily harm on a woman in June last year.
Bristol Crown Court heard yesterday that the complainant suffered a punctured lung, cracked rib, bruising and scratches to her back in the incident.
Ian Fenny, prosecuting, said 18-year-old Webb was arrested after a man living on a boat near the car park of Bristol Classic Boat Company, at Redcliffe Wharf, was disturbed by what sounded like a car bonnet popping in the early hours.

Mr Fenny said: "He looked out of the window and saw two people having sex. The couple were on the bonnet of a red Citroen van.
"The man was Afro-Caribbean, in a partial state of undress. The woman was white, young and slim. She was on the bonnet of the car and the man was issuing commands."
The jury heard the man told the woman to "shut up" and she screamed before he forced her to the ground.
The witness dialled 999 and when the first of two police cars arrived on the scene, its headlights illuminated the pair.
Mr Fenny said the woman was "extremely distressed", adding: "She was sobbing and crying and the police noticed tears running down her face. She pulled her clothes up and was crying out 'I couldn't stop him! I couldn't stop him!'.
"The man was arrested immediately. He had been caught red-handed."
After his arrest Webb told police he was the victim of a dreadful misunderstanding and the woman had initiated sex after he came to her aid following an altercation.
Mr Fenny told the court: "He said he was acting as a gentleman when he offered to walk her home."
The case continues.
