The Old Bailey heard claims that Aliyah Weekes, 19, of St Mary’s Road. Harlesden, forced the 15-year-old girl into performing a sex act on the boy because she was ‘snitching’.

The alleged victim claims Weekes told her ‘snitches get stitches’ immediately before she was pinned down in an alleyway close to the College of North West London in Dudden Hill Lane, and forced into performing oral sex.

But her alleged attacker, 17, said they were walking and talking together when she suggested they go into an alleyway.

The teenager, who cannot be named, said: “She had her back to the wall, we were talking and she said she wanted to give a b*** j**.

“We saw two boys were there so that’s when we stopped. We walked out and everyone was coming towards us.”

The teenager said the girl also bared her breasts to him during the encounter and he offered to walk her home afterwards on April 29 last year.

Prosecutor James Dawes said Weekes had threatened to hit the girl and force to perform oral sex on several boys.

Weekes told detectives she witnessed the sex act and the girl was a willing participant.

Weekes and a 16-year-old girl, who also cannot be named, were arrested for encouraging the alleged rape.

Both deny aiding or abetting rape.

The boy denies rape.

The trial continues.
