AN ALLEGED rapist attacked a woman on a riverbank and minutes later told another: “Allah is going to get you”, a court heard yesterday.

Abdel-Aziz Al-Shamary, 21, was arrested shortly after the sobbing woman was found near the river with her face covered in blood and her jeans and underwear around her ankles.

When he was taken into custody he exploded with rage as a female officer tried to speak to him, the jury heard.

He was heard to yell: “Do you know Saddam Hussein? I am Saddam Hussein. I will not talk to you, you are a woman.”

He also shouted on two occasions “Bitch country”, it was said.

PC Jackie Mallows told the court: “He kept telling me not to touch him and he also said ‘I will not speak to you, you are a woman – in my country we speak to men’.”

Before his arrest but after the alleged rape Al-Shamary walked up to a woman in the street and called her an “ugly bitch” adding she was “not worthy.”

Gemma Stirling told Teesside crown court she was left pale and shaking after he stood toe to toe with her.

And she added: “As he walked away he said: ‘Allah is going to get you’.”

Al-Shamary, whose nationality was not given in court, followed the evidence with the help of an Arabic interpreter.

He is accused of attacking a white British woman in her 30s after she left The Greyhound pub, in Darlington, Co Durham, following a night out in May this year.

She told police officers in a video statement played to the jury: “I left the pub and he came over to me and pushed me over on the grass of the river bank.

“I fell face down with my arms in front of me and I turned to look at him and he punched me in the face.

“He punched me again with his fist and hit me on the nose, when I put my hand to my face it was covered in blood.

“Then he got on top of me from behind, I could feel his weight on me. He pulled down my jeans and my pants and I could feel that he was raping me.

“He told me not to say anything or he would come back and hurt me. He made me feel horrible, scared and frightened.”

Two friends driving past saw what was happening on the bank of the River Skerne in the centre of the town and circled back to help.

Rebecca Wynn and Natalie Curry found the woman lying on the ground covered in blood and dialled 999.

A recording was played to the court and the victim could be heard sobbing in the background as her friends told the operator what had happened.

Natalie Curry told the jury she saw Al-Shamary pulling the women down the bank by her wrists as they drove past.
When she returned to the scene the attacker had fled.

She said: “She was crying hysterically with blood all over her and she was screaming that he had said he would kill her if she told anyone.

“She said that he had been raped and that he would come back.”

Prosecutor Paul Abrahams revealed that Al-Shamary – who had been drinking from two bottles of Jack Daniels whiskey – had been watching porn videos on his mobile phone around four hours before the attack.

He said: “He was watching people having sex outdoors. It is relevant as when confronted with a lone female he raped her.”

DNA from the alleged victim was found on Al-Shamary’s underwear, the court was told.

Al-Shamary, of Darlington, denies rape. The trial continues.

Unfortunate sculptures resemble male members while balloons and butter echo breasts.

Drinks machines and puddles also appear in the hilarious gallery.

Now, stop sniggering at the back.

THE parents of a six-year-old boy who died from meningitis have released the harrowing last photo of their son in a bid to raise awareness.

Oliver Hall died less than 24 hours after first showing signs he was ill.

Despite the best efforts of doctors and nurses who “did everything they could” to save Oliver’s life, the infection overwhelmed his body.

He passed away at the James Paget University Hospital in Norfolk on October 24.

At the age of six, Oliver was not vaccinated against the strain that cut his young life short – meningitis B.

In September 2015, the MenB vaccine was added to the NHS childhood immuisation programme, but only for babies under the age of 12 months.

Now, Oliver’s heartbroken parents are urging the Government to make it available free of charge to all kids.

Bryan and Georgie Hall, from Halesworth in Suffolk, have joined forces with Meningitis Now to raise awareness.

Mrs Hall said: “Oliver achieved so much in his short life. He will always be remembered.”

Now the couple are calling on health secretary Jeremy Hunt and the Government to widen the vaccination programme to protect more children.

“The Government are saying it’s not cost effective to vaccinate more children against this disease.

“Meningitis Now are arguing that point.

“Our main goal is to help them get this vaccination rolled out to more children.”


MORE THAN A RASH What is meningitis, how can you catch it and what are the signs and symptoms of the deadly disease?


The charity argues that a vaccine for all would be cost-effective, when compared with the cost of treating the devastating disease.

Meningitis can affect people of all ages, but is more common in babies and young children.

Teenagers and young adults – particularly university students – are also at high risk, because they live and socialise close together, raising the risk of the disease spreading quickly.

On Friday, the Meningitis Research Foundation urged people to be alert to the signs and symptoms of the disease, as cases of the deadly infection are expected to treble over the festive period.

There are five main groups of meningitis, but meningococcal B (Men B) is the most common, responsible for 55 per cent of cases of meningococcal meningitis.

While the MenB jab is available free of charge on the NHS to babies, it can be bought privately.

Boots and other pharmacies offer the two-dose course at a cost of £220.

Last month Mrs Hall met MPs and other families, who have lost their children to meningitis.

“On the back of this meeting, they are looking into setting up a working party with the main aim of looking into the cost effectiveness of the vaccine and rolling it out to children.

“That is a positive step.”

The couple set up the Oliver Hall Forever Fund tribute website, to raise money for Meningitis Now.

So far more than £4,000 has been raised in Oliver’s memory.

His mum added: “To see that total going up makes us feel that Oliver’s life was not in vain.”

The singer’s mother Jo paid tribute to her “spark of life” son, telling Hull Daily Mail: “From the day he was born I can’t explain the feeling he gave me.”

Dave, whose nickname was Cardo, played in bands including Mother and GST Cardinals.

Family and friends gathered at the Queens Pub in Hull to pay tribute to Dave, remembering the singer as a “rockstar”.

Friend Grant Dobbs said: “He was a rock and roll star. You had to meet the man for him to have such an effect on you.

“He had the Cardo-effect. He’s touched everybody’s hearts in here. He never had a bad word to say about anyone.”

He said the young musician had only played his last gig two weeks ago before suffering the fatal heart attack.

Dave was found at his home in Dunswell on Tuesday.

Friends said that he was a true entertainer, on and off the stage.

The Polar Bear will be holding a tribute night to Dave on Friday.

Four members of The Paddingtons will perform a Strokes tribute act in honour of their friend.
