A millionaire property developer was cleared of criminal charges after he claimed he “accidentally” raped a teenage girl when he “fell” on top of her.
According to USA Today, Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, was accused of raping an 18-year-old girl who slept over at his London flat after a night out drinking with her 24-year-old friend. Abdulaziz had sex with the older woman before his incident with the teenager.
The teen claimed Abdulaziz forced himself on her, but the British millionaire painted a different story. He claimed he went to see if the girl needed anything and she pulled him on top of her, causing him to fall. He said his penis was outside of his underwear because of his sexual relations with the teen’s friend.
The girl told police she was then unable to wake up her friend, so she called two other friends to pick her up. At the time of the August incident, Abdulaziz allegedly said, “She’ll have to prove it.” She was also scared to call the police immediately after because she didn’t want to “aggravate the situation.”
Abdulaziz’s semen was found inside the young woman, but he said his semen was on his hands from having sex with the 24-year-old. Judge Martin Griffiths reportedly allowed Abdulaziz to give evidence in private.
The women met Abdulaziz at Cirque le Soir nightclub, a popular club in London’s West End.
The jury acquitted him after 30 minutes of deliberation.
