Delivery driver jailed after dumping rape victim in his work jacket

A delivery driver who raped a drunk student after posing as a Good Samaritan has been jailed for nine and a half years.

Naiem Suleman, 52, infected his 22-year-old victim with an STD after attacking her when she became separated from friends on a night out.

He picked the young woman up in the early hours of January 19, 2019 and offered to drive her home.

But Suleman, who was working as an Uber fast food driver, drove the woman to a secluded spot where he raped her before dumping her outside her flat.

The woman’s housemates found her in a distressed state and wearing Suleman’s work jacket, bearing the logo of the company he worked for.

He denied rape and put his victim through the ordeal of a trial at court, where he was found guilty.

On Monday, Suleman, from Coventry, was sentenced to nine and a half years in prison and ordered to register as a sex offender for life. 

The court heard the woman suffered bruising round her neck and scrapes and scratches on her knees.

Suleman was arrested after forensic evidence linked him to the crime.

Delivery driver raped woman after offering her a lift home

A 52-year-old fast food delivery driver has been convicted of raping a 22-year-old woman after a night out in Coventry.

Naiem Malik Suleman offered the 22-year-old woman a lift in his car in the early hours of January 19 last year, after she had become separated from friends on a night out.

But instead of talking her home, the court heard that he raped her.

Later when she arrived home she had on a jacket bearing the logo of the delivery firm Suleman worked for.

She also had bruising round her neck and scrapes and scratches on her knees.

Suleman, of no fixed address, denied the charge but forensic evidence from her clothes linked him to the rape and he was convicted at Warwick Crown Court.

He remains remanded in custody for sentencing in January.
