Kyle McKenzie, 23, was sentenced to 11 years after admitting his crime but showing no contrition.

He pleaded guilty on November 16 and was sentenced at the High Court in Edinburgh today.
Senior investigating officer DI Darren Stewart said: ‘Kyle McKenzie is clearly a very dangerous, opportunistic individual.
‘He carried out particularly brutal attack on a vulnerable woman, submitting her to a harrowing ordeal in the one place in the world she should have been safest, her own home.
‘He showed no contrition for his reprehensible behaviour when he was charged.
‘However, he will now face the consequences of his actions having admitted his guilt.
‘A large scale police investigation was carried out following this incident which ultimately identified McKenzie as being the individual responsible.
‘I want to take the opportunity to thank the public and partner agencies for their assistance and information provided, particularly in providing support to the woman involved.
‘Police Scotland treats all reports of sexual crime with the utmost professionalism and sensitivity in order to bring perpetrators of such crimes such as Kyle McKenzie to justice.’
