Rapist: Hesam Khosravi kicked and beat his victim and threatened to tape up her mouth during the attack last April in Trafford, Greater Manchester
A 24-year-old Iranian immigrant who filmed himself raping a woman at knife-point on his Apple iPad was today jailed for six years.
Hesam Khosravi kicked and beat his victim and threatened to tape her mouth up during the attack in Trafford, Greater Manchester.
He pulled her around by her hair and forced her to strip and perform a sex act before raping her, Minshull Crown Court in Manchester heard.
During the harrowing half-hour of footage, which was shown in court, Khosravi can be heard laughing and commentating on the assault in Farsi as the woman cries and sobs throughout.
Police found the recording on his iPad after he was arrested for an unconnected offence – but Khosravi claimed it was consensual ‘role-play’.
Before the video was shown, the judge warned the court of the ‘very distressing’ footage and told the public gallery: ‘This is the time to leave if anyone does not want to watch the video.’
Jonathan Dickinson, prosecuting, said Khosravi rested his iPad on a windowsill, lit the room with a halogen lamp and pressed record in a deliberate bid to capture the assault last April.
He said: ‘He begins by asking her questions – what’s your name, etc. If she didn’t answer his question, he threatened her with a knife which he can be seen to be holding.
