Man jailed for knifepoint rape of friend's girlfriend.

The Dubai Court of First Instance ordered his deportation after serving his prison term.

Dubai -- A 23-year-old Sri Lankan cook, who raped his friend's girlfriend at knifepoint after barging into her room in Jebel Ali, has been sentenced to five years in prison.

The Dubai Court of First Instance ordered his deportation after serving his prison term.

The victim, 23, who is from Belarus, said during investigation that she was in her boyfriend's room when the defendant knocked on the door and enquired after him.

"I was alone in the room browsing the Internet while my boyfriend was at work. The defendant pushed me inside, closed the door and kept the key with him," she told the prosecutor.

She said he put a knife on her neck and asked her to have sex with him. "I tried to talk him into leaving me alone and promised I would not tell anybody about his actions. But he pulled me by my hair, pushed me to the couch and raped me."

When the room's phone rang, she tricked him and rushed outside.

The accommodation's security guard said the complainant sought his help around 9pm on May 4 last year.

"She looked frightened and was shaking. She told me that a man barged into her room and raped her at knifepoint."

A policeman said the defendant was very drunk when he quizzed him shortly after the incident.
