A man in the United Kingdom, raped a birthday girl after she became separated from her friends.
Rajedmiah Miah, 29, of Elswick, Newcastle, pleaded guilty to rape and was sentenced to 6 years in prison.
He will also have to register as a sex offender for life.
Miah pretended to be a good Samaritan, offering aid to a drunk woman after a night of partying.
The victim was celebrating her 18th birthday when she became very drunk and was separated from her friends.
Miah approached the teenager and offered to help her get home. However, instead of taking her to her home, he stopped a taxi, placed the girl inside and he told driver to take them both to his house.
The Newcastle Crown Court heard that the victim went to a number of bars, but at 2:00 a.m., she was alone in the Pink Room nightclub on Westmorland Road.
When they reached Miah’s house, he helped her out and took her to his home, which he shared with others.
He then took her into his room, closed the door and pushed her onto his bed.
After she was raped, others in the home saw her in a state of distress and tried to comfort her, but she was crying and managed to flee the home.
A passerby came to her aid and took her to the West Road police station to report what had happened, leading to the arrest and conviction of Miah.
