Woman tells court of 'rape attack' in Aberdeen

A woman has told how she was throttled and then raped under a lorry in Aberdeen.

Jaroslaw Naczas, 20, denies attacking the prostitute in July last year in Links Road and has gone on trial at the High Court in Aberdeen.

Giving evidence from behind a screen, the 37-year-old woman said she found herself being attacked after performing a sex act, before running for help.

She said: "I was hysterical. I was so relieved to be away from there."

The woman said she had regained consciousness to find herself being sexually attacked while staring up at the underside of a lorry.

A recording of the woman's 999 call was played to the jury.

She was heard crying and telling the operator she had been attacked by a Polish man.

She said: "I've just been raped."

She told the operator her attacker had been wearing a grey hooded top, a baseball cap and light jeans.

The trial, before Lord Malcolm, continues.
