Man denies raping sex worker in Rosary Road area of Norwich

Postby admin » 04 Apr 2017, 19:43

A man accused of raping a sex worker in the Rosary Road area of Norwich has denied the charge, claiming sex was consensual. Twenty-four-year-old Ian Barnes is standing trial at Norwich Crown Court charged with one count of rape, alleged to have occurred in the early hours of June 4, 2015.

Ian James, opening the case for the prosecution, told the jury the alleged victim had dialled 999 shortly after 12.30am. “In her call she told the police she had just been raped,” he said. While the victim declined to make a complaint at first, officers were able to identify Barnes as the subject of the allegations and brought him in for questioning.

By the end of July, the victim was ready to co-operate with police. Mr James said in her interview she said she had “needed a £60 punter that night”.

“Shortly after that a man appeared out of nowhere and asked her to perform sexual acts for money and she agreed,” he said. “She says once they got round to the back of some flats the man had reached into his pocket and seemed to put something into her bag, which she thought was likely the payment. She looked in her bag and found no money but bits of torn up paper.”

Mr James said the victim had started to feel “very frightened” before the man began dragging her down an alleyway and forcing himself on her.
