Abdel-Aziz Al-Shamary has been jailed for 12 years after raping a stranger on a riverbank
A Kuwaiti who was convicted of raping a stranger on a riverbank after watching outdoor porn on his phone has been jailed for 12 years.
Abdel-Aziz Al-Shamary, who originally came into the country illegally, punched his victim in the nose and then raped her on a grassy bank by the River Skerne after she left a pub in Darlington.
A jury convicted him of rape following a trial last month at Teesside Crown Court.
The court heard how his victim was found near the River Skerne with her face covered in blood and her jeans and underwear around her ankles.
Two women saw what was happening and came to her aid.
The rapist was arrested minutes after the attack around midnight on May 16 this year.
Al-Shamary, understood to be a takeaway worker, had drunk from two bottles of Jack Daniels during the evening.

At the police station he claimed to be Saddam Hussein and refused to speak to a female officer.
He told PC Jacqueline Mallows: ‘I will not speak to you, you are a woman…in my country we speak to men.’
He also twice referred to England as a ‘b***h country’ and shouted ‘kill me now’.
He had been watching porn, including outdoor sex, on his phone earlier on the evening of the rape.
He was only restrained when he was threatened with a Taser.
Al-Shamary, 21, from Darlington, will be deported after serving his sentence.
