A man who filmed himself raping a woman at knifepoint has been jailed.

Hesam Khosravi (05/11/1988), of no fixed address, admitted two counts of rape at an earlier hearing.

At Minshull Street Crown Court today, Monday 14 January 2013, he was sentenced to six years imprisonment.

He was also placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

Shortly after 7pm on Wednesday 18 April 2012, the victim called police and reported being raped at a house in Broadheath, Trafford, a few days earlier

The victim also told police that he had filmed the attack.

Khosravi was arrested shortly afterwards and an iPad was seized from his car.

The iPad was analysed by Greater Manchester Police⿿s High Tech Crime Unit and 16 home made videos were found on the device. All 16 videos are shown as having been created between 00:45 and 01:02 on the 14th April 2012.

Various parts of the video explicitly show Khosravi raping the woman, who is distressed and sobbing throughout. The footage also shows him armed with a knife at various points.

The victim was also assaulted throughout the ordeal.

Detective Constable Pat Finnigan, from the Serious Sexual Offences Unit, said: "The victim was put through a terrifying and degrading ordeal, the effects of which will stay with her for the rest of her life.

"Over a relatively prolonged period Khosravi physically and sexually attacked his victim, leaving her ion fear for her life.

"That he committed these acts with a young child present at the address is all the more shocking.

"So brazen and unrepentant was he about what he was doing he filmed large extracts of the offence and can even be heard laughing at times.

"The footage we recovered from the iPad is some of the most distressing evidence I have ever seen and shows firsthand just how dangerous a man Khosravi is."
