A man who dragged a mother into a car park in Rotherham and raped her has been locked up.

Alan Ahmed, 39, who raped his victim after she got separated from her friends on a night out after going in search of food, was jailed for six years at Sheffield Crown Court.

Ahmed, of Spalton Road, Parkgate, Rotherham pulled the mother down a street where he attempted to have sex with her, before forcing her onto a car park in Greasborough Road and raping her.

He pleaded guilty to rape at a court hearing in March.

Detective constable Rachel Morton, who lead the investigation, said: “I hope the sentencing brings some form of closure for the victim, who has been through a deeply traumatic experience and has demonstrated tremendous courage throughout our investigation.”
