A police officer pulled down a teenage woman’s top and took a photograph of her breasts after pretending to ejaculate on her chest during a work night out, a court has heard.

PC Paul Hinchcliffe, 46, is also alleged to have taken a picture of the woman wearing her glasses before showing it to others and saying he would use it to masturbate.

The South Yorkshire Police officer, who is suspended from duties, is standing trial at Leeds Crown Court charged with sexual assault.

The court heard the alleged incident took place when he was drinking with three other members of the force in a pub in Rotherham on October 3, 2020.

During the course of the evening, jurors were told the police training officer had simulated ‘ejaculating into her breasts’ by flicking beer foam down her chest and ‘grunting’ after the woman said she wanted a ‘boob job’.

He is also accused of telling the woman, 18, that she had a ‘bum like a 12-year-old’. 

The court heard that when the woman later returned home and ‘cried her eyes out’, she received a message from Hinchliffe saying: ‘God I’d do you, is that bad?’

The text was accompanied by a number of emojis that the woman took to represent masturbation, the court heard.

Louise Reevell, prosecuting, said Hinchliffe’s alleged victim was invited to the night out through a WhatsApp group that another woman, Jade Henry, had set up called ‘Sesh’.

She said woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, met Hinchcliffe and three others at The Church House Wetherspoon pub in the town for drinks.

The prosecutor said that, during the evening, Hinchcliffe began making inappropriate comments after the woman’s proposed ‘boob job’ came up in conversation.

She said: ‘The group were drinking alcohol throughout the afternoon and into the early part of the evening. The defendant began making inappropriate comments to [the alleged victim].

‘This seemed to come about because Jade Henry mentioned that she [the alleged victim] was going to have a boob job. She told her that she didn’t need to.

‘But [the alleged victim] said that she did because she had the breasts of a 12-year-old. The defendant then commented that she had the bum of a 12-year-old.’

Ms Reevell added that Hinchcliffe went on to tell woman she had a ‘good’ behind before making comments about masturbation.

The prosecutor continued: ‘He said she had a “good bum” and also took a picture of her in her glasses and then said: “I’m going to have a w**k to that tonight”.

‘She tried not to acknowledge it and to move on, even though it was a bit weird. The defendant then flicked foam at [her]. Initially it hit her glasses.

‘But the defendant then began flicking bits of foam into her chest and down into her breasts and made grunting noises.

‘He then pulled out his phone and took a photo down her top, saying he was going to send it to a friend as he would regret not coming. It was that particular incident that initially constituted the offence.

‘The prosecution say that it’s clear that the defendant was trying to make it appear that he was ejaculating into her breasts.’

Ms Reevell said the victim felt ‘uncomfortable’ and called a friend to take her home. 

During her police interview on October 8, 2020, played in court, the woman said she ‘cried my eyes out’ after arriving back at her parents’ property.

The woman told officers: ‘I just sat on the settee and cried. It was all so weird and awful.

‘I didn’t want to be upset because I didn’t want people thinking I couldn’t take that banter. That just upset me.”

However, the court heard that Hinchcliffe continued making inappropriate comments towards the woman as she wept at home through WhatsApp messages.

She went on: ‘When I got home, he sent a picture of me that he took and put emojis, like w*nking emojis, and put ‘”God I’d do you. Is that bad?” I said “Yeah it is”.

‘He said “Sorry, sorry, I’m just drunk.” I just stopped replying and put him on mute. He sent one, then another and another.’

Ms Reevell said the defendant was arrested and interviewed on October 9, 2020, on suspicion of sexual assault.

When he was interviewed again in April last year, his solicitor made a prepared statement saying the alleged victim had consented to him taking the photograph of her.

He has since been suspended from duties while an internal misconduct investigation is on hold pending the outcome of the criminal proceedings.

He denies sexual assault. 

The trial continues.
