A divorced mother of two who woke to find a teenager in her bed at four in the morning denied she had told him: "Come up and see me."
Exeter Crown Court heard that 18-year-old Cyril Jury told police that the woman had 'always flirted with him' and had told him two weeks before the incident 'if you don't pull one night come up and see me.'
Prosecutor David Sapiecha said Jury admitted that he had been in the woman's bed at her home in Bideford and described his behaviour and explanation as 'extremely bizarre.'
He said the victim had gone to bed just before midnight and woke to find Jury lying next to her with his cold hand under the duvet and on her private parts. When she expressed shock and concern he fled from the house and she immediately called a neighbour who came round to comfort her.

The police were informed and Jury was arrested the same day. It was then he gave the odd explanation for what he had been doing. He said he never put his hand under the duvet but had it on the victim's side outside the cover. He also told interviewing officers that he had never had any affection for the woman, there was no intimate history between them and he did not even fancy her.
"The prosecution say that his behaviour was sinister and was a concerted effort to be there for a sexual reason," said Mr Sapiecha.
