A teenager who was bound, dragged through a Perth cemetery, twice raped then dumped in bushes by accused Claremont serial killer Bradley Robert Edwards thought she was going to die.
The ex-Telstra technician admits the double rape, but is fighting allegations he murdered Sarah Spiers, 18, Jane Rimmer, 23, and Ciara Glennon, 27, in 1996 and 1997.
"I thought at the end of it all that he was going to kill me," the 17-year-old victim said in one of four statements read out in the Western Australia Supreme Court on Monday.
The 1995 attack happened less than one year before Ms Spiers vanished after leaving the same venue, Club Bayview.
The girl had 50 cents left after a night out, so decided to walk a few hundred metres to a friend's home.
"I usually leave with someone but I just wanted to go," she said.
On the way through a dimly-lit park, she was grabbed from behind, pushed to the ground and straddled, then had a thick cloth like a sock shoved deep into her mouth.
"I didn't scream. I just froze," she said.
"It happened really quickly.
"He told me to shut up at one point.
"I didn't say anything to him. I was too frightened.
"I kept my eyes shut - I thought it would be better if he thought I couldn't see him."
He tied up her hands tightly with a cord "as thick as a telephone cord", carried her to his van, bound her ankles and covered her head with a cotton bag.
"I was very frightened. I thought I was going to die."
They drove for about 30 minutes and after the vehicle stopped, she was carried and dragged through Karrakatta Cemetery.
The girl was then raped twice.
"I started to cry but not loudly."
She kept her eyes closed and pretended she was unconscious, even after he took the bag off her head.
"I was in a state of shock," she said.
"I remember repeating, 'Oh my god, I can't believe this is happening'.
"It was very painful.
"I remember my face lying against the dirt."
Edwards flung her into scrub, returned about two minutes later, then threw her into denser bushes.
After she heard him drive off, she opened her eyes, realised she was in a cemetery and ran to the exit about five metres away.
Believing people in nearby houses would think she was "crazy", the semi-naked girl instead ran to a care facility near the Hollywood Hospital where she dialled a phone at the front door with her chin and yelled for help.
The woman inside called police while the still-bound teenager ran off.
She saw headlights and feared it was Edwards, so hid behind a car where she freed one hand, then called her father from a phone box and ran to Hollywood Hospital.
"I said 'dad can you come and get me?'
"While I was crying I said I'd been raped.
"He asked me if I was alright and I said 'no'."
In his statement, the father said she was panicking, extremely distressed and sobbing.
He removed the four-metre cord, which appeared to be connected to her around her middle.
"I always thought the cord ... was a Telecom extension cord," he said.
Police later took her back to Karrakatta Cemetery where her shoes, shorts and underwear were found.
Fibres from Telstra-issued work clothes were allegedly found on her shorts, and on the bodies of Ms Rimmer and Ms Glennon.
Senior Constable Dianne Bickhoff, who took photographs of the scene, said the drag marks were "at least three metres" long and "consistent with a body being dragged".
She said the victim was dishevelled, distressed and "looked like she'd been through something".
Edwards also admits an attack in 1988.
