A MAN who raped a woman in her own home after sharing a taxi with her has been sentenced to nine years jail. Mosan Ahmed, 22, took raped the mother of two after asking to share a taxi and following her into her own home. He was sentenced to nine years in prison at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday, November 22, and will serve a minimum of six years before he is eligible for parole. The woman had been separated from a friend on the evening of October 27, 2012 and was alone at the taxi rank. While in the taxi, Ahmed, of Leslie Road, Forest Fields, asked the her for a cigarette. She didn't have any but when the cab pulled up at her house she went inside and returned with one for him. As she went back inside to her bathroom, Ahmed followed her. She told him to leave, but he punched her in the face, leaving her with a bleeding lip. He then threatened to kill her if she did not go along with what he wanted. Ahmed raped her and forced her to stay with him until he decided to leave. The woman later ran to a friend's house and the police were contacted. A few days after the rape, Ahmed went back to the woman's house only to find her partner at home. The woman has been left with anxiety and is unable to sleep. She believes that drinking to excess contributed to her missing any signal that her attacker would strike. Speaking out, she said: "I want to say to any women who are going out drinking, just don't drink to the point that you are unaware of what is happening around you. "I know a lot of people do it and I've got friends who will say 'I can't remember anything about last night' and they think that's the sign that they've had a good time. "But things can happen and you don't realise that you are in danger. There are people out there who are waiting to prey on someone who is vulnerable and that it what happened to me. "Women should be able to go out and have a good time and have a drink with friends but they need to stick together. "Now, I suffer from anxiety and at night when I'm falling asleep I'm waking up with a start as if something has happened. "Going to court was not a pleasant experience and being cross-examined by the defence solicitor was one of the worst times of my life because I had to relive the whole thing." DC Rob Smith who led the investigation, said: "This was a very traumatic experience for the victim who showed a great deal of courage in pursuing it through the court process. The sentence handed down reflects just what a dangerous individual Ahmed has shown himself to be."
