A jury has been shown CCTV footage of an alleged rape at an Aberdeen takeaway.
Behroz Hamedi is on trial at the High Court in Aberdeen accused of raping a 21-year-old at the former Marco’s Fast Food Restaurant in Belmont Street on November 1 2018.
The 59-year-old, of Pine Crescent Walk, Aberdeen, denies the alleged sex assault, which is said to have happened when the woman was intoxicated.
Yesterday, the jury of 10 men and five women were shown footage of the back of the shop, which Detective Constable Callum Spence talked through.
Advocate depute James Keegan QC, prosecuting, asked DC Spence to describe what he saw on the recording.
Mr Spence said he saw “movement” in the corner of the screen.
He added: “There appears to be a couple on the floor.
“There’s a person on the ground and her arm is moving around.”
He also said he saw a man and a woman “partially undressed”.
Defence counsel David Moggach QC cross-examined Mr Spence and read from the report.
The report read: “The pair move towards each other and appear to kiss on the lips.”
The jury was then shown a 33-second clip showing a woman and Hamedi in an embrace before the alleged rape happened.
Mr Moggach asked: “Is that the piece of footage that you viewed that allowed you to made that entry in your log?”
Mr Spence replied: “Yes.”
Forensic medical examiner Gordon Duthie, who assessed the woman’s injuries, said she had bruising on her right arm, left arm, buttocks and left knee but could not say when they would have occured.
The trial, before Lord Arthurson, continues.
