Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - NEWS -

AN AL­LEGED rape vic­tim de­nied she stole her at­tacker’s wal­let, a court has heard.

The woman, who is in her 30s, told the High Court in Aberdeen she had no rea­son to steal money on the night of the al­leged in­ci­dent.

Jaroslaw Naczas, 20, is al­leged to have at­tacked the woman in Aberdeen’s har­bour area in July last year.

The woman, who had been work­ing as a pros­ti­tute at the time, said: “I had been given money. I didn’t need to steal it.”

Naczas, whose ad­dress was listed as 4B Loirston Place, Aberdeen, de­nies drag­ging the woman un­der­neath a lorry and rap­ing her, at­tempt­ing to mur­der her and rob­bing her of a mo­bile phone, a hand­bag and cash on the city’s Links Road. The trial con­tin­ues.
