A student at a prestigious music college violently raped a young woman in his hall of residence, a court has heard.

Adam Jordan, 24, allegedly sent the 21-year-old a message on Facebook afterwards saying: ‘I have done something beyond terrible and I don’t expect you to forgive me whatsoever.’

Jordan, a student at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, is accused of raping her after being in a bad mood because another woman he liked now had a boyfriend, and the alleged victim had turned down his offer to go out with him.

Her shouts for him to stop could be heard in the next room but although she was crying her protests did not seem to register with him, the court heard.

The pair had earlier been drinking together in the bar at the college and then went back to his room where he had two cans of lager and she had a bottle of Peroni, Manchester Crown Court was told.

They had had sex on previous occasions, and after watching a YouTube video undressed each other and had consensual sex, Rachel Shenton, prosecuting, said.

However, he continued to have sex with her against her wishes, changing the situation ‘from what was a consensual episode to something that wasn’t’, she told the court.

The alleged victim told police Jordan had had ‘a bad day’ and ‘seemed agitated, p***** off’.

After they got to his room on the evening of January 31 last year he downed the two cans of lager which seemed to get him quickly drunk, she said. ‘I was tipsy but I remember everything,’ she added.

The woman said they started kissing and began having sex which was ‘OK’, but it then ‘started to get rough’.

She told police ‘his grip was quite strong and he felt quite heavy and I couldn’t move much’, adding: ‘I asked him pretty quickly to stop.’

Asked what he did she replied: ‘He did not say anything, it was a bit like he couldn’t hear me. I was quite scared.’

Jordan then ‘suddenly’ stopped and went for a shower. She pretended to be asleep when he returned and they remained in his room until they left in the morning.

The court heard that a few days later he invited the woman to his room to talk and asked how many people she had told.

She said Jordan seemed upset that she had told a friend and he asked if she had any marks and she told him she did not. She went on: ‘He said he did not remember and apologised.’ Miss Shenton told the court that when the woman’s friend spoke to Jordan she called him ‘a disgrace’ and he allegedly replied: ‘I know.’

The prosecutor said the day after the incident Jordan admitted to the rape, saying: ‘I feel f****** terrible about it.’

Miss Shenton said there were subsequent Facebook messages. In one to the alleged victim, Jordan said: ‘I have done something beyond terrible and I don’t expect you to forgive me whatsoever.’ She later went to the police.

Jordan, of Atherton, Greater Manchester, denies rape.

The trial continues.
