A woman from Harlesden accused of orchestrating a punishment rape admitted she was ‘mad’ with the 15-year-old alleged victim for spreading rumours about her.
The Old Bailey heard claims that Aliyah Weekes, 19, of St Mary’s Road, is said to have forced the girl to perform oral sex on a 17-year-old boy in an alleyway close to the College of North West London in Dudden Hill Lane, Willesden.
The victim said Weekes told her ‘snitches get stitches’ as she was pinned down on April 29 last year.
Weekes admitted ‘getting a bit mad’ while confronting the girl, believing she had revealed details of a private conversation to others but she said the girl willingly performed oral sex on the boy.
She said during the argument the girl broke down crying when they argued and was ‘giving attitude’, but denied spreading the rumours.
She claimed the row ended when a 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, offered to talk to the girl ‘round the corner’.
She told detectives she witnessed the sex act a few minutes later, but said the girl was a willing participant.

“No one touched her, I never threatened her and I never forced her to give oral sex to no one”, she told officers after her arrest.
Prosecutor James Dawes said Weekes had threatened to hit the girl and force to perform oral sex on several boys.
The court heard the attack only stopped when two passersby passed the alley and the boy backed away, saying ‘I was never here’.
Weekes, the boy, and a 16-year-old girl, were later arrested.
Weekes and the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, both deny aiding or abetting rape.
The 17-year-old boy denies rape.
The trial continues.
