Abdourahman Amadeo, 24, shouted ‘Get this h** out of my bed,’ after attempting to rape the young woman at his home in December 2015
A refugee has been jailed for nine years for his ‘animalistic’ rape bid of a drunken student who passed-out on his bed.
Abdourahman Amadeo, 24, shouted ‘Get this h** out of my bed,’ after attempting to rape the young woman at his Hounslow home in December 2015.
During a hearing at Isleworth Crown Court, the jury heard the victim and a female friend had partied at the nearby Club K and believed they were getting a lift home from one of Amadeo’s pal’s when they were taken to the address at 4.30am.
Recorder Sallie Bennett-Jenkins QC told the court: ‘It was an attempted rape committed in the most callous of circumstances.
‘She was enjoying an evening out with friends. She did consume alcohol and there is no criticism of her in this respect.
‘We have CCTV footage and we can see she was extremely vulnerable, she was falling over, she could barely stand and fell, cutting her legs, on the way to your home.
‘There was a specific targeting here of a vulnerable victim. She was obviously under the influence of alcohol to a great extent.
‘She could not walk and her incapacitation due to alcohol makes her a person of particular vulnerability.
‘In your room she either fell asleep or passed into unconsciousness and is spared the recollection of what you did to her, without her consent, yet this is the thing that haunts her.
‘You took that chance to prey upon this young woman who was obviously unable to give consent to any sexual conduct.
‘You should be thoroughly utterly disgusted with your conduct. You tried to rape a woman you barely knew.’
‘She was and is tortured by what happened to her.
‘When you were arrested you denied knowing her and said her friend was lying.’
Recorder Sallie Bennett-Jenkins QC told Isleworth Crown Court: ‘It was an attempted rape committed in the most callous of circumstances.
The victim reported the attack to police and took anti-HIV drugs after the incident.
The prosecution relied largely on the victim’s friend’s evidence even though she had been removed from the bedroom on Amadeo’s orders.
Amadeo, who worked at Heathrow Airport’s Caffe Nero, was born in Somalia but he and his parents fled to Italy as refugees.
Once he was given citizenship, he moved to the UK.
Amadeo was unanimously convicted by the jury of the attempted rape of the young woman.
Ms Bennett-Jenkins added: ‘You tried to rape a woman you barely knew. She was inert, there was no speech or movement.
‘The fact you sought to have sex with her beggars belief and can only be described as animalistic.
‘Your thoughts are obvious through your words of: ‘Get this h**’, slang for wh**e, ‘Out of my bed.
‘You took your own selfish and animalistic sexual satisfaction from her.’
Amedeo was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register for life.
