The victim, in her 20s, had been waiting for the bus when she was lured to the property by Saheed Rasoolli, 30, and Araz Abdulla, 23.
The court was told how both men took turns raping the young lady in one of the flats’ bedrooms on Roker Avenue, Sunderland, on May 23 2018.
It is said that she was left with nail marks to her neck, throat and arms after the ordeal.
Both men deny rape and are being tried by a jury at Newcastle Crown Court.
The Court heard that the woman ran into a local shop crying and in a mess after the horrific ordeal,
One shop worker said:
The shop door opened and I looked up at I saw this female enter. She was very distressed, her hair was untidy. “She was crying. She had blue eyeshadow on, which was smudged around her eyes as well as mascara. On one side of her face, on her cheek, she had marks, not scratches and also small marks at her neck, near her throat.
Prosecutor Paul Abrahams told Newcastle Crown Court that Rasoolli has “decided at this early stage he was going to have sex with this female, whatever her views”
He continued to tell the court how pair lured the young woman to a “multi-occupancy building, containing a number of flats occupied by asylum seekers and into Abdulla’s bedroom, who then left the room. ‘Rasoolli, without warning pushed her on the bed,
She told him to stop and tried to push him off, she made it clear she didn’t want to have any kind of sexual activity but despite her attempts, he ignored her and continued to force himself on her. “
The court was told that when Rasoolli’s attack was over he then left the room and Abdulla returned.
He then proceeded to allegedly rape the victim as well.
Mr Abrahams said: “Again, she hadn’t wanted any kind of sexual activity and told him to stop. She tried pushing him away but he continued raping her.”
He suggested Rasoolli had threatened him into having sex with the girl. ‘He claimed Rasoolli had a knife and while threatening him had put the knife to his head. He said the girl grabbed his head and forced him to give her oral sex and demanded he have sex with her.
He said he had done this while Rasoolli had been outside the bedroom with the knife. He then said he had ran away and slept rough because he was frightened.”
Jurors heard that when Rasoolli was arrested in Middlesbrough on June 10 and told officers that the woman had “come on to him” and he had “begged her to go away.”
Abdulla, of Roker Avenue, Sunderland, and Rasoolli, of Hylton Road, Sunderland, both deny rape and the trial continues.
