"I'm raping this f****** b****."
Mohammed Nadeem Hussain, aged 26, of Manchester, received a life sentence for his sudden attacks on two sex workers.
He tried to rape one of them and badly beat the other after meeting them in Cheetham Hill, with the attacks taking place within minutes of each other.
The attacks took place in the early hours of August 10, 2022. One happened in a car park, the other in an alleyway.
Both women said Hussain initially appeared “likeable and friendly” and chatted with the pair.
The sex workers agreed to have consensual sexual relations with him for payment.
But Hussain turned violent “from seemingly nowhere” and “delighted in the degrading and humiliating way that he treated them”.
The first victim, Woman A, told the court that she agreed to perform oral sex on Hussain. But at one point, he dragged her to the floor and tried to rape her.
According to prosecutors, Woman A believed Hussain was filming her and said:
“I’m raping this f****** b****.”
The attack lasted around 20 minutes before Hussain was “disturbed” by a passer-by.
The trial heard that the second victim, Woman B, has since died from an unrelated illness.
In a video interview before her death, she said Hussain demanded that she call him a “dirty rapist” during the attack.
Woman B believed Hussain was “revelling in what he was doing to her”.
After pulling down Hussain’s trousers, Woman B was able to escape.
Hussain claimed the altercations happened because he believed the sex workers were “trying to rip him off”.
But he was convicted of attempted rape and assault occasioning actual bodily harm (ABH).
Hussain was due to be sentenced on November 30 but refused to attend court. The case was adjourned to give him another chance to attend but he refused again.
On December 1, Hussain was sentenced to life in prison, to serve a minimum of 12 years.
After sentencing, Detective Sergeant Natasha Feerick, of GMP’s North Manchester CID, said:
“Firstly, I must praise the bravery of the women coming forward, this case has been extremely tricky to navigate.
“The victims have often stated how they didn’t feel like they would be believed due to their work.
“The details alleged by the complainants revealed Hussain to be a man who revelled in their suffering and who took delight in degrading and humiliating them.
“Ultimately, regardless of their work or how the encounter began, the victims came forward because they, as with any other person, have autonomy over their bodies, and shouldn’t be subjected to sexual abuse.
“They wanted the man who violated them brought to justice.
“They hadn’t ever reported a sexual offence to the police before and one of the victims found it extremely traumatic to give evidence – it was very difficult to get her to come to court, which we understand is common with offences of this nature.
“Today’s sentencing is testament to the courage of these women coming forward.
“They have enabled us to put a dangerous offender behind bars and away from harming more women.”
“As a team of officers, we want to get the message out there for victims to feel safe reporting crime to GMP.
“No matter what you do, or who you are, we will support you and treat you with the dignity you deserve and expect. If you talk to us, we will listen to you.”
Stacey Gosling, of the CPS, previously said:
“Mohammed Hussain clearly poses a danger to women.
“He carried out terrifying sexual and violent attacks upon two women within minutes of each other and degraded them further by calling them disgusting names as he did so.
“Sadly, one of the women died as a result of an unrelated illness before the trial, however, we successfully applied to the court for permission to present her video interview to the jury.
“After careful consideration of all the evidence, the jury have found Hussain guilty of carrying out the attacks.
“The law on consent is clear: consenting on one occasion does not mean you consent to every occasion.
“Every individual has the right to withdraw consent to sexual activity at any time they choose. The CPS is committed to bringing offenders who commit crimes against women to justice.”
