A man went on trial yesterday accused of carrying a schoolgirl off a street and raping her as she walked home.
Jamie King allegedly seized hold of the 14-year-old and detained her against her will behind an Iceland supermarket in Aberdeen.
He is alleged to have taken the girl’s bag and mobile phone then refused to give her belongings back unless she had sex with him.
The 19-year-old, of Aberdeen, is further accused of stealing the girl’s bag and its contents at the time of the alleged assault on October 5, 2013.
He denies the two charges and went on trial at the High Court in Aberdeen yesterday.
The alleged victim, who cannot be named, told the court she had been walking home from a nearby park where she had been drinking alcohol with a friend.
She said she struck up a conversation with King as she walked along Great Northern Road and he offered to walk her home.
She said: “We walked for a bit on the main road and then he kissed me.”
Advocate depute, Joanna MacDonald, prosecuting, asked: “Why did he do that?”
The schoolgirl replied: “I don’t know.”
Ms MacDonald asked: “Did you kiss him?”
She replied: “Yes, I kissed him back.”
Ms MacDonald asked: “Were you happy to do that?”
She replied: “Well not really, I was drunk.”
The teenager told the court the man then lifted her up and carried her to the back of the Iceland supermarket along the road.
She said: “I was screaming and saying to just leave me alone.”
The girl said she was put down on a yellow grit box before he took her hand and made her touch him, then tried to take off her clothes and raped her.
Ms MacDonald asked: “How did you feel when he was doing this to you?”
The schoolgirl, who started crying, replied: “It happened the first time in my life.”
The trial continues this afternoon.
