Samantha Forsyth prosecutes Worcester rape trial

Fri, 04 Jan 2013

A woman, 25, has claimed she was forced to have sex with Simon Walters-Melville, also 25, without consent after a night out.
 
The woman claims they went into her house, shared a bottle of wine and the next thing she remembers is being on the floor with Walters-Melville on top of her. 
 
Samantha Forsyth, prosecuting, said the woman had injuries to her arms and legs which demonstrated she had been held down. She also had internal injuries that suggest forced intercourse. 
 
Walters-Melville denies rape, insisting that she consented. 
 
The trial continues.
