Two men have been convicted of raping a woman in a flat in Sunderland. Saheed Rasoolli, 30, and Araz Abdulla, 23, both had sex with the victim in a bedroom of a flat on Roker Avenue back in May 2018. The pair both denied rape but on Thursday, a jury found them guilty following a two-week trial at Newcastle Crown Court. Chief Superintendent Sarah Pitt, of Northumbria Police, said: The court was told how the victim was waiting for a bus in the city centre on May 23 this year when she was approached by Rasoolli. She was then taken back to a property on Roker Avenue and raped. Once Rasoolli had left the room, Abdulla then entered and forced himself on the victim. The woman fled to a nearby shop and reported the offences to police. Rasoolli, of Hylton Road, Sunderland, and Abdulla, of Roker Avenue, Sunderland, will be sentenced on Monday, December 17 at Newcastle Crown Court.
