A man has told a court of the moment he woke in a doctor’s home with a black leather mask over his face as he was being sexually attacked.

The man, who cannot be identified, gave evidence at the trial of former GP Victor Calland, 61, and architect George Cameron, 63.

Calland, of Broadgate, Preston, denies three serious sex offences and two counts of indecent assault. Cameron denies one sex offence.

The jury was played a pre-recorded interview with the alleged victim in which he said he and his friends, who were teenagers at the time, used to knock on doors in the area for work and Calland would pay him to wash his car.

One day Calland spotted him sitting on a bench near his home, after the man was made homeless, and took him in.

But the man claims the next day, Calland walked into his room naked and assaulted him.

He said: “At the time I didn’t say anything because I was confused, but he should have known better.”

After a week he claims he woke on a bed after being injected to find himself being attacked.

The court heard he stayed a month, during which he was assaulted repeatedly. Calland also became his GP.
