Woman ‘was trembling’ when she arrived at nearby house
"YOU know what's going to happen."
This was the chilling warning a young woman allegedly received moments before she was allegedly attacked and raped in isolated Rockhampton bushland.
At day two of Kiah Glenn Everill's trial, a number of witnesses told the court the victim was visibly distressed as she described how a lift home from the pub turned into her worst nightmare.
"She told me he kept missing the turns to her house," one friend said.
"She said he told her he had a knife and that he'd done this before."
It is alleged the defendant took the woman to a secluded section of Rockonia Rd, Koongal, one Friday night in November, 2011.
The court has heard the pair were introduced through a mutual friend earlier in the evening.
Everill, 24, has pleaded not guilty to one count of rape, claiming the intercourse was consensual.
However, the Crown alleges the victim ran from the car, only to be chased down and forced to the ground.
The court heard the woman went to a nearby house, where a Vietnamese man and his wife were living.
Through an interpreter, the man yesterday said she asked to use the phone to call an ambulance.
"She was trembling, shaking," the man said.
Evidence also suggested Everill sent a text message to the victim's friend saying she was "keen for it but flipped out".
The trial is expected to conclude yesterday.
