A PAL of Madeleine McCann suspect Christian B has spoken of his horror at finding videos showing him raping an elderly woman.
The convicted paedophile, 43, was identified two months ago as the man responsible for kidnapping and killing Madeleine and German police are racing to build a case against him.
The pal, who was named only as Manfred S, was tracked down to Portugal by a German documentary which was broadcast today.
Manfred spoke of his shock after finding the videos which were used to convict Christian B last December of the 2005 brutal rape of a 72 year old woman in Praia da Luz – two years before Madeleine vanished just yards away.
He said:''In the video an old woman was talking to him the whole time, then he used what looked like a ruler on her. I have seen some people say stick but to me it looked like a ruler.
''He kept flicking her breast with it and then on the other video there was a young girl tied up in a house, tied to a wooden beam.''
Manfred immediately alerted police about the videos which were found in Christian B's house after he broke in while his pal was in prison.
In June The Sun revealed how Christian B was convicted after harrowing testimony from the 72 year old American victim in which she described how she feared for her life during the ordeal.
The court in Braunschweig heard she thought she was ''going to die'' as twisted Christian B tortured and raped her in her own home.
In a statement read to the court, the woman, who is now 87 years old and back in the States said:''I remember thinking, ‘I hope he won’t kill me. Eventually, he tore my clothes down with a jerk.
“When I was naked, he threw me through the room and repeatedly slapped me all over the body with a metal object and pinched my nipples.
“It lasted about 15 minutes and I got the feeling he enjoyed it.
“I insulted him and called him a son of a b****h and an a*******
“The rape then happened almost casually, as if he had already lost interest.''
Christian B escaped justice for 12 years before being snared on DNA evidence but his lawyer Friedrich Fulscher has insisted the evidence is tainted.
He also says the testimony of Manfred and another witness is flawed as the videos were never shown in court or found and he is currently appealing his rape conviction at the European Court of Justice.
Police received a tip-off about Christian B following an appeal over Madeleine on German TV six years after she disappeared from her family holiday apartment in the Praia da Luz resort in Portugal in May 2007.
He was living in the area at the time and police have said that mobile data shows he was near Madeleine's apartment on the evening she was abducted.
