Girl, 14, raped by stranger who gave her £ 100 for sex after ‘raping’ her in Piccadilly Gardens, prosecutors claim

A girl was raped by a stranger who paid her £ 100 for sex after raping her in Piccadilly Gardens, prosecutors claim.

Aberham Fekaud, 28, admits to having had sexual activity with the 14-year-old girl, but claims she told him she was 19.

The girl was out in the city center with a friend in the early hours after deciding not to go home after an argument with her mother, Manchester Crown Court heard.

Prosecutors say he ‘raped’ the girl and offered her a place to stay away from the cold weather.

Around 4 o’clock in the morning, Mr Fekaud is said to have approached the couple and asked his friend if she would ‘go with him’.

She said she ‘did not like boys’ but pointed to her friend.

Juries heard Mr Fekaud asked her how old she was and told him she was 14.

It is alleged that he asked her if she would perform a sexual act on him for money.

“He said if they wanted more money, they should follow him to his house and he would give her £ 100,” prosecutor Camille Morland said.

She said she would not do so, but Mr Fekaud kept ‘insisting’.

“She would not, but her friend said ‘it would be better than being outside all night,'” Mrs Morland said.

“Perhaps you can well imagine at this point that it might well have seemed like the better solution.

“The prosecution says the defendant was addressing this vulnerability and dilemma.”

Mr. Fekaud got into a taxi, and both girls followed, and they went to his house in Salford, which he shared with other people.

In his room, Mr Fekaud is accused of raping the girl twice.

A roommate entered the room, and Mr. Fekaud stopped, the court heard.

The girls went to sleep and woke up at 8 and got a bus into the city center.

Prosecutors say Mr Fekaud gave the girl he is accused of raping £ 100 as ‘payment’ for the sexual activity.

Mr. Fekaud denies this, saying he actually gave her £ 20 for breakfast.

The girl was talking to her big sister when she got home and the police were called.

Sir. Fekaud was arrested after semen found in a medical examination of the girl was found to be his.

Juries were told that Mr Fekaud claims that it was the girl who suggested they had sex and that she told him she was 19.

She showed him an ID card to prove it, he says.

He agreed to have sexual activity with her in his house, but maintains that it was with consent.

Mr. Fekaud of Gerald Road, Salford, has pleaded not guilty to three counts of sexual activity with a child, as well as two counts of rape and two alternative counts of sexual activity with a child.

Speaking to the jury, Mr Fekaud’s lawyer Iain Johnstone said: “The defendant accepts that the sexual acts took place between him and the complainant, but he maintains that the complainant told him she was 19 years old.

“There was nothing he would say that made him think she was anything other than 19, and certainly not 14.

“He also maintains that all sexual acts that took place between him and the complainant were with her consent.”
