Jurors have been shown video recordings of a ‘vulnerable’ teenage girl from Sheffield recalling the moment she was allegedly raped by a man in a hotel bedroom.

They were shown taped police interviews with the 13-year-old, who is claimed ran away from home last summer and was trafficked across Yorkshire and used for sex.

In one interview the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told police officers she spent a night at a Rotherham taxi driver’s house before being dropped off at Sheffield bus station, where she met a man she did not know who she travelled to Leeds with.

She said he left her there with a ticket for a bus to Bradford.

The girl said when she arrived in the West Yorkshire city she was ‘crying’ and met a stranger, named Shaz, who she spent two days with before he slapped her during a row and she moved out.

She then told police she ended up getting into a car with two men - Shakeal Rehman, 26, and Mohammed Shapal, 22 - who spotted her walking alone.

The teenager said they took her to a hotel, where she Rehman raped her.

The girl told police officers she was ‘shy’ as she struggled to describe the graphic details of the alleged attack.

Jurors heard her say: “He pushed me back. I was really scared. I thought he was going to kill me. He raped me then.

“He was laughing all the time.”

She said when Rehman left the room Shapal arrived and told her he ‘loved her’ and she felt she loved him.

Rehman, from Bradford, denies rape and trafficking.

Shapal, also from Bradford, along with Usman Ali, 21, from Bradford and Yaseen Amini, 36, from Lopham Street, Burngreave, Sheffield, deny sexual activity with a child.

Bekir Rasheed, from Ulverston Road, Woodseats, Shapal and Amini deny trafficking.
