The two Muslim men told one victim to “be a good woman” as they took turns raping her.

Syed Ahmed and Najirul Miah, who picked the woman up outside a takeaway in Sunderland city centre and drove her to a secluded spot to rape her, have been sentenced at Newcastle Crown Court.

The victim of a brutal rape was told to ‘be a good woman’ as men took turns to attack her.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had been separated from her friend following a night out.

Because her phone had died and she couldn’t get a taxi home, she approached Syed Ahmed and Najirul Miah parked up outside a takeaway in Sunderland city centre, Chronicle Live reported.

The woman offered them money for the short journey back to her home, which the men agreed to.

Instead of taking her to her house Ahmed drove her to a secluded spot where they took it in turns to rape her.

While they did she was told to ‘be a good woman’ and that she had to ‘do as we tell you’.

The victim has lost the ability to trust people and struggles to leave the house, impact statements read in court explained.

She said that the attack had ‘stolen her life’.

Now Ahmed, 22, has been jailed for 11 years at Newcastle Crown Court while Miah, 22, was locked up for 12 years.

Ahmed, of Sunderland, was found guilty of rape, false imprisonment and theft of her belongings.

Miah, of Sunderland, was convicted of rape, sexual assault and false imprisonment, having admitted theft of her belongings.

Both must sign the sex offenders register indefinitely.

Jodie Menzie’s, Ahmed’s partner at the time, was given a suspended prison sentence after she contacted the victim on Facebook.

She urged her to drop the charges, offering money for her to do so while emotionally blackmailing her.

Menzies, 22, admitted attempting to pervert the court of justice and was sentenced to 16 months in prison, suspended for for two years.

She was also given a six month curfew and a five year restraining order.

The woman was forced to relive the ordeal of a trial three times after the first one ended in a hung jury and the second collapsed because of a legal reason.

Both men continue to deny the charges, despite being found guilty at the third trial in December.

Judge Sarah Mallett told them: “You forced yourselves, one after the other, onto her.

“Both of you used some force against her during the course of the rapes, as a result of which she sustained, albeit minor, physical injuries.”

Paul Reid, defending Miah, said: “This was an incident for which this young man feels deep remorse. Even on his account, he realises that this was appalling behaviour.”

Paul Cross, for Menzies, said she was only 18 at the time and is “not just vulnerable but exceptionally vulnerable.”

David Callan, defending Ahmed, said: “He doesn’t agree with the verdict but he does accept it.”
