Man, 21, 'claimed to be Saddam Hussein after raping one woman on a riverbank and telling a second 'Allah's going to get you'

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.
