Shaid Hanif preyed on his victim after spotting her covered in blood with a broken jaw
A 40-year-old man faces jail after being found guilty of raping a young woman who he found staggering the streets with a broken jaw.
Shaid Hanif preyed on his vulnerable victim after spotting her alone outside the Jurys Inn hotel in Bradford, West Yorkshire, covered in blood.
The woman was heavily under the influence of alcohol and cocaine, Bradford Crown Court heard.
Hanif ordered a taxi to take them to his home before raping her, despite the fact she was bleeding and her teeth were cracked.
During the trial, the court heard Hanif came across the woman by chance.
Her shirt was covered in blood, she had no handbag and she had suffered a broken jaw, chipped teeth, a fractured finger and bruising and grazing, the court heard.
Hanif had used the woman, who was a total stranger, for his own sexual gratification, Prosecutor Matthew Bean told Bradford Crown Court.
He took her home in a taxi and raped her on his single bed.
She could recall nothing after checking the time on her phone at 2.30am until she woke next to Hanif 12 hours later.
The court heard she had been out with friends in The Village nightclub where she had drunk vodka and took three lines of cocaine.

She had been prescribed a strong dose of antibiotics by her doctor for a chest infection, she told the jury.
When she woke the following afternoon, there was blood on the pillow.
She had no trousers on, her teeth were damaged and her jaw was swollen.
She burst into tears when she looked in the bathroom mirror at Hanif’s home but said he became angry and swore at her.
The woman told of being scared and confused.

Giving evidence during the trial, the victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said: ‘I didn’t have a clue where I was. It was weird.
‘I just wanted to get out of there. I didn’t know what had happened to me.’
She sat on the step outside the property waiting for a taxi to a friend’s house.
The woman needed stitches to a laceration to her lip.
The jury also heard a blister on her breast could have been caused by a lit cigarette being stubbed out on her skin.
The court did not hear how the victim’s jaw was broken.

Hanif told the court the woman followed him along the road and got into the taxi with him.
He wanted her to sleep on the settee at his home but she ‘insisted’ on going to bed with him and having sex, he claimed.
Hanif originally stood trial for the rape in May 2017, but the jury was discharged after he was attacked in the courtroom by a man in the public gallery.
The defendant was treated in hospital for bruising and the trial was abandoned at the request of his legal team.
They said he was too shaken and shocked to concentrate sufficiently on the proceedings.
Hanif was convicted by a jury on October 11 of raping the vulnerable young woman at his home in February, 2016.
Recorder John Thackray adjourned the case so Hanif can be assessed to see if he poses a serious public danger.
Hanif, who was in custody throughout his trial, was remanded back to prison at be sentenced at Leeds Crown Court on November 16.
