'I was pressured for sex,' says girl, 13

A TEENAGER has told a jury how an alleged sex attacker “pressured” her for a sex in a car.

The girl, who is now 15 but was 13 at the time of the alleged offences, told Sheffield Crown Court via video link how Razwan Razaq persuaded her to have sex in a street near Oakwood School.

But Mr Gordon Savage, defending Razaq, insisted that the alleged victim had been flirting with the defendant in the moments before the pair had intercourse.

Razaq and seven other men denied a total of 23 sex offences against four girls aged between 12 and 16 in 2008. The trial continues.
