Lottery Winner In Child Sex Trial

A lottery winner sexually abused two girls in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, it was alleged in cort yesterday. After allegedly raping one of the girls, David Dyas, 52, gave her £2, prosecutor Martin Kelly claimed at Cardiff crown court.

Dyas, a vehicle restorer of Brynheulog Road, Newbridge, has pleaded not guilty to three charges of rape and not guilty to five charges of indecent assault.

Mr Kelly said the first alleged victim was sexually abused by Dyas who afterwards told her: “This is our little secret.”

Mr Kelly said: “She was very scared but didn’t tell anyone for a very long time. There is nothing unusual in that.”

He claimed the girl was abused a number of times but matters became “more serious” when he took her to a local beauty spot where, it is alleged, he raped her in bushes.

A similar incident occurred in a house, it is alleged. Regarding the other girl, Mr Kelly said: “Very similar things happened to her.”

It is alleged that Dyas took her to a moorland area and touched her indecently. He urged her to tell no one and promised to “bring her nice things.”

It is alleged that Dyas also took her for a drive in a Land Rover and raped her. “She remembers him putting his hand over her mouth to stop her crying,” Mr Kelly said.

Mr Kelly said he also called that girl a “whore” and made her walk home from where he had driven her.  When arrested, said Mr Kelly, Dyas “denied absolutely” that anything sexual occurred.
