Ipswich: Two men guilty of raping and imprisoning 17-year-old girl
Two men who locked a 17-year-old girl in a room at a drug den in Ipswich and raped her are facing jail.
The teenager had gone to the property in Foxhall Road on June 30 last year to visit a 17-year-old boy and the two men after exchanging text messages with them, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
After being let into the house she was taken to a back room, which contained gym equipment, by the 17-year-old boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons.
He told her that one or more of his friends wanted to have sex with her, said Stephen Spence, prosecuting.
The girl made it clear that she was not there for anything like that and the youth had then left the room, locking the door behind him.

Abdullahi, Saeed, and the 17-year-old youth, all from London, all denied falsely imprisoning the girl and were found guilty after a week long trial. Abdullahi and Saeed also denied orally raping the girl and were found guilty of that charge as well.
Sentence was adjourned until February 26 for pre-sentence reports.
During the trial the girl was described as vulnerable and it was acknowledged by the prosecution that she had made false sexual allegations in the past.
Mr Spence told the court the defendants claimed the girl had gone to the flat in Foxhall Road to collect drugs for her mother and that the sexual activity that took place was consensual.
Giving evidence during the trial Saeed said the girl was a willing participant in what took place.
He claimed the girl had called him into a room at the house and had pulled down his trousers and performed oral sex on him.
