Rapist charged with breaking into former GG home

Updated: Nov 18



Former head of state Sir Arthur Foulkes and his wife had a close call when a rapist broke into his home earlier this year.

Accused rapist Hensley Pennerman broke into ex-Governor General Sir Arthur’s home on West Bay Street while Sir Arthur slept upstairs with his wife Lady Joan Foulkes on February 5, 2020.

Pennerman, 55, slipped in through a kitchen window and stole an Apple MacBook, valued at $1,000 and $121.

Cops lifted prints from the scene and linked him to the break-in when they fingerprinted him this month.

Prosecutors say that Pennerman burgled six homes, raped one woman and tried to rape another since March 2015 to August 4, 2020.

Pennerman told the court that he committed all of the crimes.

But the magistrate couldn’t take pleas in those charges, which are only tried in the Supreme Court.

Pennerman told the magistrate that he wasn’t a bad person but did bad things when he used crack cocaine.

Pennerman said that he’s been using drugs for 30 years.

He asked the court to include drug rehab in his sentence.

Pennerman returns to court on August 13 for sentencing for breaking into the Foulkes’ home.
