Rowe's tenth victim, in whose house he was staying when he arrested in Newcastle in December last year, gave police a bag which contained his belongings including a box of ripped condoms.'The condoms were in wrappers and the wrappers had already been opened,' she explained.'The condoms inside had been sabotaged.'The nipple end was missing, the the condoms had been fully broken, pushed back inside their wrappers and back into the box.'If the aim of a condom is to prevent semen entering the anus or vagina during intercourse, thereby providing reassurance the other party is safe, the only reason a pre-ripped condom is used is to coerce another into having unprotected sexual intercourse.' Sussex Police were contacted in February 2016 and had diagnosed two men as HIV positive who had described having intercourse with a man with a Scottish accent.
