TWO sex predators pounced on a woman as she lay vulnerable in a flat.

Abdalla Awad, 23, molested the victim before Ahmed Haji, 31, from Yoker, raped her at the property in Glasgow’s Springburn in August 2018.

Jurors heard how Haji was caught with his bare bottom showing as he attacked her.

Awad went on to sexually assault a sleeping woman months later.

The friends denied the crimes during a trial at the High Court in Glasgow. But, Haji was convicted of rape and Awad two charges of sexual assault. Haji was remanded in custody.

Awad, of Barmulloch, Glasgow, was found guilty in his absence. He was too ill to be in court for the verdict. Both will be sentenced next month.

The rape victim was described as “vulnerable” due to drink. She was said to be “unfortunate enough to come into the orbit” of her attackers.

In his closing speech to jurors, prosecutor Paul Kearney said: “You have heard how each of them, to varying degrees, took complete advantage of her.”

Awad inappropriately touched the victim first before he left the room and Haji then raped her. A witness caught Haji with the woman.

He recalled: “I saw him kind of face down next to her. I remember seeing his bum and kind of shuffling his trousers up.”

Haji then tried to push past the man. The victim was also said to be partially dressed at the time.

Jurors heard how the victim was trying to “mentally block out” what was happening. She was described as distressed and crying after her ordeal.

Mr Kearney said: “She was in shock and could not compute what had just happened.”

The woman initially got advice from a cop she met via a friend before reporting the matter.

Haji claimed in evidence he jumped off the bed as “he wanted to go home” as him and his “missus” were due to go out for dinner.

Awad’s second attack occurred as the other victim awoke to find her onesie outfit unzipped while at a flat in Glasgow’s Woodlands in December 2018.

He was molesting her – it took the woman “a moment to realise” what was happening before Awad stopped.

Sentencing was deferred for reports.
