Rapist involved in brutal Christmas Eve gang sex assault is jailed for 10 years

Mohammed Miah

A MAN who was involved in the brutal Christmas Eve gang sex attack of a woman before going on the run has been jailed for 10 years.

At Carlisle Crown Court today (FRI), Mohammed Miah became the third person to be locked up for subjecting the victim – who had been on a festive night out – to a dreadful ordeal in a city flat.

The “extremely drunk” woman was guided about a mile through Carlisle city centre on the false promise of a taxi, “sandwiched” between two other men, in the early hours of December 24, 2017. Inside a flat, Kabir Hussain, 41, then twice raped the female and sexually assaulted her. She was also sexually assaulted by 32-year-old Marco Martins. As they left the room at one stage, 38-year-old Miah walked in and raped the woman having failed to utter a single word to her.

“This is a gang assault,” prosecutor Tim Evans told the court. “It is perhaps difficult to conceive of how a Christmas night out could end in greater horror than what she went through at the hands of these defendants.”

As a police investigation began, Miah was bailed on Christmas Day, but fled Carlisle and “disappeared” for almost a year until police arrested him in Devon in November. He was snared by DNA evidence.

Miah, of The Strand, Exmouth – previously good character – admitted rape and was jailed today (FRI). Judge James Adkin told him: “This was a gang rape of a vulnerable woman for whom you showed utter contempt, and you must be severely punished for it.” Miah will be on the sex offenders’ register for life.

*Hussain, of Dod Street, Tower Hamlets, London, was jailed for 11 years at the crown court in March, 2018, while Martins, of Borland Avenue, Carlisle, received a 45-month prison term.

Detective Constable Naomi Raine said: “All three of the offenders involved in this appalling crime have now been charged, brought before the courts and sentenced for their actions.

“The three men have all preyed on a woman in an extremely vulnerable state, attacked her and then sought to lie to the police about their involvement.

“However, thanks in no small part of the bravery and courage of the victim, as well as the diligent work of officers and the Crown Prosecution Service, they have been brought to justice.”
