  • A 40-year-old nurse kissed and groped a 14-year-old boy, and told him ‘come here baby, I want you to f*** me’ after getting drink at a VE Day street party, a court has heard. 

    Katie Barrett allegedly sexually assaulted the teenager after telling his father ‘don’t worry, I’m not trying to seduce your son’. 

    A jury was told today that she plied the schoolboy with alcohol during street party celebrations in Camberley, Surrey, in May 2020.  

    It is alleged that she gave the boy shots of Limoncello before touching his genitals. 

    Barrett denies one count of committing a non-penetrative sex act on a boy aged 14 years. 

    Her father accompanied her to Guildford Crown Court and sat in the public gallery listening to the evidence.

    Prosecutor Leo Seelig told the court: ‘The boy says that on May 8, 2020, the defendant led him upstairs to her bedroom and asked him to have sex with her and then she touched his penis.

    ‘On that day there was a VE Day celebration street party. The victim was there with his sister and his father.

    ‘What the victim told police was that the defendant was feeling friendly towards him and his sister and she spoke to him about his GCSEs and what he wanted to do after school.

    ‘He told her he was soon going to turn 15 years old. She gave him some Strongbow cider and invited him to her house to get more drinks and they sat in her garden. She was drunk and the victim’s father appeared in the garden.

    ‘She told him ‘don’t worry I’m not trying to seduce your son,’ and he (the father) paid no attention and told her he didn’t think she was. The defendant asked the victim if he wanted to f*** her. She then apologised, said she shouldn’t have said that and they went around to the front of the property.

    ‘The defendant gave the victim shots of Limoncello and they went back inside the house. She asked the victim if he wanted “to do it,” saying she “wanted him.” 

    ‘The victim said no, you’re drunk and that his parents were outside.

    ‘She kissed him and he, also drunk, went along with it. She took him upstairs and said “come here baby, I want you to f*** me.” 

    ‘A neighbour entered the house and shouted up the stairs for the defendant, who said she was in the bathroom.’

    The prosecutor said while in the bedroom with the boy, Barrett ‘touched him inappropriately’. 

    ‘The victim said people were at the door and that they should leave,’ he added.

    The prosecutor told the jury how the day after, the victim told his friend of the incident. The friend convinced him to tell his sister who then told their parents and then the police. Officers arrested Barrett two days after the street party.

    The jury was shown police video interviews with the then-14-year-old boy, who said: ‘My parents told me to speak to people, so I came over and spoke to people at the street party.

    ‘I then spoke to Katie, who was being nice and asked me what I wanted to do when school was over and how I was coping with Covid quarantine. I had mentioned to her I was turning 15 years old that week. She also asked if I had a girlfriend and she said it was good that I didn’t have one.

    ‘She gave me a Strongbow and maybe 10 minutes later, she got me another drink. My sister asked for one but she told her to get one, instead of getting one for her like she did for me. When we were outside and started talking, she said to ‘come with me’.’

    The court heard that Barrett asked him once they were alone: ‘So do you wanna f*** me? She then said sorry and said she shouldn’t have said that.

    ‘I then had more drinks and Katie called me in and shut the door behind me. She asked me “do you wanna do it?”, and I said “what?”, as I was on my phone.

    ‘She said “I want you”, and I said “No. You’re drunk, and my parents are outside,” but she said “it’s fine” and she kissed me. I froze. She said let’s go upstairs and I went along with it. I didn’t know what to do, and I was a little drunk.

    ‘She went upstairs to her room and got on the bed and said “come on baby I want you to f*** me” and I said “no, I can’t, there’s people knocking at the front door calling my name”. She said it was fine and that we wouldn’t get caught.’

    He said she then molested him, adding: ‘People were at the door and I said let’s go. She said okay and I went out and carried on playing football again.

    ‘I took a drink from the fridge as I left to try and cover-up. I felt guilty the next day and was scared to tell mum because I felt embarrassed. The other day it hit me, that I think she had it in mind the whole night. I didn’t realise until a few days later.’

    Describing her to officers, the boy said: ‘She was quite big, with blonde hair, freckles and wearing a long summery dress and she wore glasses.’ 

    The trial continues.
