Couple raped stranger who refused to join them as they had sex in front of her

A couple have been jailed for a combined 25 years for raping a woman they had lured back to their flat for sex.

Mohammed Hussain, 22, and Yazmin Ali, 31, had beckoned their victim into a pub after spotting her walking through Bradford town centre in July 2017.

The city’s crown court heard all three went back to Ali’s flat where the couple tried to entice the woman into a ‘threesome’ by having sex in front of her. But when she refused they snapped.

Ali leapt up and held a knife against her throat while her younger lover ripped off her top and bra. He then threw the terrified woman face down on the bed and forced himself on her.

The woman grabbed her clothes and one of her shoes and fled. She was found crying and half naked by a cleaning supervisor who called the police.

In her victim personal statement, the woman said she was now ‘a bag of nerves’ and afraid to go out.

When officers went to Ali’s flat, she threatened them and hurled racist abuse at one them.

Both Hussain and Ali were convicted of rape in January.

Ali was also found guilty of assault by biting the woman and admitted racially aggravated harassment of the police officer.

She was jailed for 13 years and Hussain was handed a 12-year sentence.

The pair, from Bradford, were also ordered to sign on the sex offenders’ register for life for the offences in July 2017.

Ali has previous convictions for grievous bodily harm, false imprisonment, causing actual bodily harm, robbery, battery and criminal damage.

The court heard Hussain had a previous conviction for kidnap and was on licence at the time.
