Teenage girl treated like ‘rag doll’ as ‘laughing’ friends raped her, court told

A teenage girl was treated like a "rag doll" by two men who laughed as they raped her, a jury has been told.

The woman was allegedly raped by Zahid Hassan and another man who went by the nickname Fred in 2006 when she was 18 years old, Leeds Crown Court heard on Tuesday.

A few years after that the pair allegedly began abusing another young woman after her number was passed on to them by men who had also abused her, Yorkshire Live reports.

Fred, who is not on trial, was described in court as a "charming and good looking" organiser who struck up relationships with girls.

Hassan, also known as Manny and described in court as "not good looking" and "not charming", denies five charges in relation to the two complainants – four counts of rape and one count of attempted rape.

The 32-year-old, formerly of Bland Street, Lockwood, Huddersfield, is on trial alongside two others – Saqib Raheel and Sholan James.

Raheel, 34, of Upper High Street, Cradley Heath, West Midlands, denies rape of an underage girl and sexual assault of an underage girl in relation to the second complainant.

James, 30, of New House Road, Sheepridge, Huddersfield, denies assault of an underage girl by penetration in relation to the second complainant.

Prosecutor Kate Batty told jurors the first complainant had been invited to 'chill' with Fred in a flat in a high-rise block. Manny was there too and the three drank vodka before Manny left, the said.

While they were alone, Fred topped up her drink 'again and again and again' until she was too drunk to stand, the prosecutor said.

"And then, Manny re-appeared. Together Fred and Manny carried her to a bed. They undressed her. She was so drunk she had no control over her body. She couldn't say anything, she couldn't do anything.

"She felt like a rag doll as Fred and Manny moved her around the bed into different positions. One had sex with her whilst the other put his penis in her mouth and then they swapped places so that each raped her both vaginally and orally.

"Even when she cried out in pain, they laughed. Once they had finished with her, they left her lying on the bed. They left the flat, still laughing about what they had done."

The jury was told the second complainant was 15 and new to town when she was spotted by Raheel and two of his friends saw her at Huddersfield bus station and invited her to a party at James' flat.

The girl went with a friend, where the prosecution says she was drugged before passing out and waking up naked in front of three men, with Raheel insulting her body and telling James what to do while James performed a sex act on her.

Mrs Batty said the girl fled the house but Raheel convinced her to come back in before raping her while she was unconscious again, adding: "She told him to stop it and get off but he carried on.

"After that event, she saw the men again and they made her believe she'd enjoyed it. That was confusing for her. She was also told that if she didn't do what she was told, there would be consequences."

The court was told that the child's phone number was passed around to men who phoned her for sexual activity, including Fred and Manny in time.

The girl described herself as a 'wreck' by that point and the court was told Fred 'charmed' her by making her feel as though they were in a relationship.

Mrs Batty said Fred once slapped her so hard that she went to the ground so she did not feel able to stand up for herself when he told her to "look after my boys".

She said the second complainant performed a sex act on Manny on two separate occasions while Fred watched.

Mrs Batty said both women were treated like "objects" despite their different ages and backgrounds, proving there is "no typical victim".

The trial continues.
