Robert vows to destroy the man who raped Victoria in Emmerdale
Traumatised Victoria Barton (Isabel Hodgins) has told her brother Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) that she wants to ensure that the man who raped her is caught and brought to justice in Emmerdale to stop him ever harming another woman – and he has made it his mission to ensure that justice is done.
Pregnant Victoria is struggling to come to terms with her terrifying and violent ordeal which saw her invite Lee into her home before he then forced himself on her in the place where she should have felt safest. She has since discovered that she is carrying her attacker’s baby and Robert has been at a loss over how best to support his sister, with Diane (Elizabeth Estensen) encouraging him to take things at Victoria’s own pace.
Eventually, they sat down and talked and Robert asked her what she wanted to do, which is when she insisted that she wanted to get justice. Determined, Robert held Victoria close and assured her that they would get the best lawyer and he promised to hand deliver her attacker to the police himself if he had to.
As Victoria took comfort from his support, Robert will do everything he can not to let her down. And this means that he and Aaron (Danny Miller) will step back from their surrogacy plans – especially with the Dingles also being rocked by the news that Lisa (Jane Cox) is going to die.
Both Victoria and Lisa will need all of the support they can get from their loved ones in the harrowing weeks ahead.
