Ipswich: Man denies raping mum at her home

IPSWICH: A man accused of raping a woman in her home told her after the alleged attack that she was now his girlfriend and suggested they could have a child together, a court has heard.

Siavash Amir-Hosseny also allegedly told the woman she would have to get her hair dyed and after looking in her mouth told her he would make her an appointment to see a dentist, said Richard Scott, prosecuting.

Amir-Hosseny, 23, of Burrell Road, Ipswich, has denied four offences of raping the woman between August 11 and 14 last year.

Mr Scott told the court that Amir-Hosseny had met the woman while she was out in Ipswich and during conversation he had asked if they could meet up.

The woman had given him her telephone number and Amir-Hosseny had called her later the same day while she was at her Ipswich home with her children and asked if he could come to her house.

The woman agreed and when he arrived she had cooked him some pasta and after he commented on how nice her house was, she had given him a guided tour.

While they were in her bedroom Amir-Hosseny had sat down on the bed and had “aggressively” asked her to sit down, alleged Mr Scott.

He then allegedly told her to take off her top or he would rip it off and had pulled down her leggings despite her attempts to keep them up, said Mr Scott.

He had then allegedly raped the woman, ignoring her pleas that her children were in the house and would wake up.

Mr Scott said that after the alleged attack he told the woman she was now his girlfriend and suggested they could have a child together.

He alleged the defendant had exhibited “unusual behaviour” by telling her she would have to get her hair dyed and then looking in her mouth and telling her he would make her an appointment to see a dentist.

The trial continues today.
