THE TRIAL of a man accused of rape and false imprisonment is set to go into a second week.

Louay Elamin, 32, faces allegations that he locked a woman up at his then home in Weymouth back in March 2009 and forced her to perform a sexual act on him.

He is also accused of beating another man who knocked on the door during the incident and leaving him tied up while he raped the woman in the next room.

Elamin, now of Seven Kings Road, Ilford in London, denies two charges of rape and two counts of false imprisonment.

On the fifth day of his trial at Dorchester Crown Court the jury was read extracts from an interview Elamin gave to police on June 28 this year.

He told officers that the allegations against him had been completely made up.

The trial will continue on Monday, October 22.
