31-year-old Grime artist Andy Anokye AKA Solo 45 part of Boy Better Know, was on trial been charged with 22 counts of rape and five counts of false imprisonment. He’s accused of charges of assault by penetration and two charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. The court heard that he imprisoned, physically assaulted and sexually violated and raped four women. He denies all 31 charges against him at Bristol Crown Court.
Mr Anokye was arrested when one of the women came forward to police with allegations against him. His mobile phone and laptop were seized and examined by officers, who contacted three other women.
“What they disclosed to the police is, we say, reflected by the 31 allegations that he now faces,” Mr Quinlan said. “He physically assaulted, falsely imprisoned – that is to hold them against their will – and raped each of them repeatedly.
“We say he is a violent and controlling narcissist, a bully, a sadist who derives satisfaction and sexual pleasure from inflicting pain and suffering on women who we allege are his victims.”
“He will assert that the sexual conduct with each of them was at all times consensual and there was never any occasion where he did anything with them or to them to which they were not consenting.”
Anokye, denies all the charges against him.
The trial continues.
