A woman who was allegedly raped and assaulted by a Suffolk man she met on the Plenty of Fish dating website broke down in tears while she was being questioned about the allegations yesterday (Tuesday).
The woman started crying when defence barrister Andrew Thompson asked her about an incident when his client Conrad Nelson had allegedly twisted her ankle.
She described Nelson putting his feet on her legs while they were sitting on a sofa and she had done the same to him.
She claimed that Nelson had then used both his hands to twist her ankle and allegedly told her: 'No-one ever does that to me.'
Cross-examined by Mr Thompson she denied that Nelson had pushed her legs off his lap because he had a circulation problem and she had caused him some discomfort.
