Naiem Malik Suleman could be jailed after he was found guilty of rape

A takeaway delivery driver, 52, raped a 22-year-old woman after offering to take her home when she lost her friends on a night out.

Naiem Malik Suleman could be jailed after he was found guilty of raping the woman in Coventry in the early hours of January 19.

When the woman later arrived at home she had a jacket with the logo of the delivery firm Suleman worked for on, Warwick Crown Court heard.

She also had bruising around her neck and scrapes and scratches on her knees.  

Suleman, of no fixed address, denied the charge but police said forensic evidence from her clothes linked him to the rape.

He was convicted on Friday and was remanded in custody ahead of his sentencing in January.

Detective Constable Becci Jones, from West Midlands Police, said: ‘It saddens us that throughout this case Suleman denied raping the woman – meaning she also had to endure a court trial.

‘But with the support of our specially trained officers she remained strong and resilient and with her help we have now secured his conviction.

‘We hope that this will bring her some comfort and wish her well for the future.’
