A detective constable sexually assaulted a mother he had previously had a threesome with before raping her daughter after calling her a tease, a court heard.
Married Mark Glover, 46, allegedly pounced on the 21-year-old daughter when she said no to his sexual demands before he raped her in the kitchen.
Father-of-two Glover was working for the major crimes unit of South Wales Police at the times of the allegations.
A court heard Glover had previously enjoyed threesome sex with the woman and his wife before the attacks.
But years later he began pestering her for more sex before carrying out alleged assaults on her.
And when the woman’s 21-year-old daughter found out she begged Glover to stop the attacks – and offered herself as a replacement by ‘submitting’ to sex with him.
Prosecutor Simon Mills said: ‘Over the course of about one year between the summer of 2015 and the summer of 2016 he separately sexually assaulted the mother and her daughter.
‘The offending took place separately but on a number of occasions.
‘There had been sexual contact between Glover and the older woman, and also between the older woman and his wife, Rachael Glover, and on one occasion the three of them together.’
Mr Mills said the mum wrote about alleged sex attacks by Glover in Facebook messages to a friend – and her daughter found them.
The daughter reported Glover’s attacks against her mum to police and later told officers she had also been raped by him on two occasions.
She said DC Glover first raped her in her mother’s kitchen, having already kissed her on the lips on a previous occasion.
She said: ‘He was fully on top of me and I could feel his weight on top of me.
‘He was huffing and puffing. It felt like ages but I don’t think it was that long. I just turned my head away. I kept saying ‘stop doing this’.
‘After he said it was a massive mistake then said I needed to be careful about what signals I gave to people, because he was sure I wanted it and he was good at reading body language. I felt disgusting.’
She said DC Glover raped her again before calling her a ‘tease’ and saying: ‘If you didn’t want this why did you lead me into the kitchen?’
She said: ‘He said he thought I wanted it. He said he was good at reading body language and I needed to be careful what signs I gave off to people.’
The court heard DC Glover also put his hands down her underwear on a number of occasions at the home.
Mr Mills said the final time the woman was raped was after confronting DC Glover about his assaults on her mother, where she offered to ‘submit’ to him sexually if he left her mother alone.
Mr Mills said: ‘She presented him with a bargain. If he left her mother alone then she would submit to sexual activity with him herself.
‘He proceeded to have sexual intercourse with her, knowing this was from her submission, not her consent.’
Mr Mills said DC Glover confirmed having sex with the mother during a police interview, but that it was ‘entirely consensual.’
But he denied having any sexual contact with the girl, saying she had ‘fabricated her account to try and bolster up what her mother was saying’.
DC Glover, from Penarth, near Cardiff, denies three counts of rape and one of assault by penetration against the younger woman.
He also denies two counts of sexual assault and one of assault by penetration against the woman’s mother.
The daughter told Cardiff Crown Court she was ‘overwhelmed’ when Glover raped her in the kitchen.
She told the jury: ‘I felt disgusting. I was scared, shocked, overwhelmed with all different feelings.’
The daughter said made a deal to ‘submit’ to sex with Glover after discovering he was sexually assaulting her mother.
She said: ‘When I found out he was doing it to my mum I felt bad because there was a gap between when he was doing it to me and started doing it to her.
‘She couldn’t handle it and she was having a breakdown.
‘I couldn’t handle the abuse but I could handle it better than her.’
The mother told police how on one occasion Glover visited her house and tried to kiss and grope her.
In an interview played to the jury, she said: ‘I was showing him the door and he sort of stood in front of me and I took a step backwards so I was against the wall.
‘He went to kiss me and I said ‘no’.
‘He put his hands around my waist and was feeling around my waistband.
‘He put his hands down my trousers. He said ‘you know you want it’.
‘I tried to wiggle and use my body to push him away.
‘He said ‘we have to make time for us to finish that’.’
During other encounters she said DC Glover told her ‘you like it when I’m naughty’ and ‘you know you want it’.
The trial continues.
