Operation Bullfinch Day 17: Teenager "feared she would die", Old Bailey hears

The evidence of Girl 3 begins.

The 20-year-old cried as she gave evidence this morning at the trial of nine men accused of raping and prostituting girls in Oxford. Known as Girl 3 as she cannot be named, she also told the jury she was taken to places as far away as Manchester and Coventry, and sent to London, to have sex with men.

She said Bassam Karrar gave her alcohol before taking her to the Nanford Guest House in November 2006. . . he took cocaine and became "demanding" and "aggressive". The court heard she refused to perform a sex act on him and said she needed to go home as her mum would be worried.

But she said: "He jumped on top of me and started pulling my hair. He was brutal about it. It was hurting me. My hair felt like it was about it fall off my head." The witness said she accidentally bit him and he "smacked" her in the face repeatedly with his fist. . . he scratched her face and raped her, adding: "I didn't feel like I could scream."

Afterwards he urinated on her in the shower, the court heard. Karrar then raped the 14-year-old again with his hands around her throat, the jury heard. He told the girl: "I'm going to kill you."

The witness said: "I couldn't breathe because his hands were so tight around my throat. I thought that was how I was going to die."

She said afterwards Karrar called her "white trash", "prostitute", and "crackhead".

The court heard police then arrived and the teen ran outside screaming. But Girl 3 said Bassam laughed at her from the window. And she said she ran to the reception of the hotel but a man there acted like she was "bothering" him.

Police interviewed the teenager and took photographs of the hotel room.

But the witness said she was persuaded to drop the charges by Bassam's girlfriend at the time. She said:"She said he would lose his kids and he would never see them."

When prosecutor Noel Lucas asked her how she felt when she was urinated on, she said: "I felt like I was worthless."

Bassam and his brother Mohammed later laughed about it, the court heard. The trial continues
