A 17-year-old girl was raped by two men after being locked in the back bedroom of a flat in Ipswich, it has been alleged.

The teenager had gone to the property in Foxhall Road, Ipswich, on June 30 last year to visit a 17-year-old boy and two men after exchanging text messages with them, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

After being let into the house she was allegedly taken to a back room, which contained gym equipment, by the 17-year-old boy who told her that one or more of his friends wanted to have sex with her, said Stephen Spence, prosecuting.

The girl made it clear that she wasn’t there for anything like that and the youth had then left the room allegedly locking the door behind him.

Badrdyen Saeed, 19, had then allegedly entered the room and after removing his trousers had orally raped the woman despite her protests, said Mr Spence.

Saeed had then allegedly left the room locking the door behind him and the girl was then visited by Jama Abdullahi, 23, who had also allegedly forced her to perform oral sex on him before allowing her to leave the property.

Abdullahi, Saeed, and the 17-year-old youth, all from London, have all denied falsely imprisoning the girl and Abdullahi and Saeed have denied orally raping the girl with the 17-year-old youth.

Mr Spence described the girl as vulnerable and said it was acknowledged by the prosecution that she had made false sexual allegations in the past.

He told the court the defendants claimed the girl had gone to the flat in Foxhall Road to collect drugs for her mother and that the sexual activity that took place was consensual.
