A City worker raped a comatose woman under the desk on the floor of a stockbroker's office after a late-night drinking session, a court has heard. Daniel Green, 26, allegedly attacked the woman as she slept on the floor of the StratX Markets office.
The Old Bailey heard how the alleged victim woke up as Green was pulling off her trousers and underwear. She said no repeatedly but he continued to rape her and only stopped when she began to cry, the court heard. Green then allegedly left the office with the woman still crying on the floor.
The jury heard how the woman had been out drinking with a friend in May 2015 when she met Green and his other work colleagues, according to the Evening Standard.
Prosecutor Timothy Forester said Green was “just one of a number of men from Stratx out drinking in the same area." Mr Forester said: “The two women eventually ended up with a group of the defendant and a number of other people from his company. They went from one bar to the other. It is common ground that everyone in this case was consuming alcohol.”
According to The Telegraph, the court then heard the two women had started taking cocaine and it was suggested that Green may have also taken it as well. Afterward, a member of the group suggested they return to the Stratx building, near Monument Station in the City of London, where they continued to drink champagne.
A group of eight went back to the office but by the time the rape allegedly took place at 4am only Green, the alleged victim, her friend and one other male were there. Mr Forrester said the woman had originally planned to sleep under the desk and wake up for the first train the next morning. After the alleged attack took place, the woman’s friend contacted another friend who called the police.
The court heard that when police arrived at the scene the alleged victim told them what happened and Green was arrested at his home in Walthamstow, north east London later that day.
Green has denied the charges. The trial continues.
