A 26 year-old man from Perry Barr has been sentenced to 7 years and 4 months in prison for raping a student at her home in July.
He then went inside, confronted the woman and raped her.
Khan, of Glendower Road, Perry Barr admitted two counts of rape at Birmingham Crown Court on 16 October 2015 and was today (14 December 2015) sentenced to seven years and four months in prison.
He has also been ordered to sign on the sex offenders register for life.
Speaking after the hearing, investigating officer DC Gavin McGrath said:
"There are no excuses or grey areas when it comes to rape − if someone says no, then it is a criminal offence and our officers are have a proven track record for bringing offenders to justice.
"As this case clearly demonstrates, we take all reports of sexual assaults extremely seriously and meticulously investigate every crime.
