Rapist Jama Abdullahi.

Two men who locked a 17-year-old girl in a room at a drug den in Ipswich and raped her are facing jail.

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

After being let into the house she was taken to a back room, which contained gym equipment, by the 17-year-old boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons.

He 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 was not there for anything like that and the youth had then left the room, locking the door behind him.

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

Saeed had then left the room, locking the door behind him, and the girl was then visited by Jama Abdullahi, 23, who had also 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, all denied falsely imprisoning the girl and were found guilty after a week long trial. Abdullahi and Saeed also denied orally raping the girl and were found guilty of that charge as well.

Sentence was adjourned until February 26 for pre-sentence reports.

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

Mr Spence 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.

Giving evidence during the trial Saeed said the girl was a willing participant in what took place.

He claimed the girl had called him into a room at the house and had pulled down his trousers and performed oral sex on him.

  • Time to bring back hanging. There seems to be no deterrent to these heinous crimes.

  • This poor girl must have been so strong to go to court after all that has happened to her. I hope that she can now put this behind her and live a fulfilled life.
