A Suffolk man accused of rape claimed the alleged victim had fantasised about having sex with a stranger, a court has heard.

Krzysztof Hapek told police that the woman liked role-playing and rough sex and denied he had raped her, Ipswich Crown Court was told.

Hapek claimed the woman had fantasised about having sex with a stranger and claimed they had consensual sex.

Hapek, of Scarlin Road, Bury St Edmunds has denied two offences of rape.

Jamie Sawyer, prosecuting, alleged that Hapek forced the woman to perform oral sex in him and had slapped her face.

He had also allegedly ignored her cries for him to stop and raped her.

At one stage during the alleged attack Hapek had allegedly tried to tie the woman’s hands together with a towel, claimed Mr Sawyer.

Hapek had also allegedly spat in the woman’s face.

Following his arrest Hapek denied raping the woman and claimed they had consensual sex.

The trial continues tomorrow (Tuesday).
