A Muslim minicab driver has been jailed for 11 years for raping and threatening to kill an 18-year-old woman in Surrey, England
Masood Ahmed, 26, of south-west London, was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court. The woman was attacked by Ahmed in the early hours of 13 August 2010. Det Ch Insp Steve Hayes said: "This was a sickening assault by Ahmed who saw an opportunity to attack a lone woman in the quiet early hours and took it." Ahmed was sentenced to nine years in prison for each of the two counts of rape that he was convicted of, and five years for a charge of assault, to run concurrently. He also received two years for one count of making threats to kill, to run consecutively. Ahmed, who worked for a firm in London, had forced the woman into woodland, put his hands around her throat and threatened to kill her before he assaulted and raped her.
