University of Essex rape accused says woman ‘started whole thing’

A man accused of raping a student told police “she started the whole thing from A to Z”, a court has heard.

Sultan Mohammed, 25, denies raping the woman at the University of Essex accommodation block in October.

In a statement read out at Ipswich Crown Court, Mr Mohammed, of Colchester, said the woman had invited him into her room to have “our own party”.
