Man, 24, accused of raping two women in their hotel room says they both willingly had sex with him

A man accused of raping two women in their hotel room has claimed they both willingly had sex with him before the ‘dominant’ one left him ‘covered in scratch marks.’

Callum Kenny, 24, alleged he met the women at the door of their Ibis hotel room after the pair returned from a night out in Bristol.

He told jurors how one of the women told him she found him attractive. Kenny said the pair kissed, and he was then invited inside their room.  

The defendant said he had consensual, unprotected sex with one of the women before the other was an equally willing participant, Bristol Crown Court heard. 

Kenny, from St Austell in Cornwall, denies raping the two women on October, 28, 2018.

He previously admitted drinking alcohol on the night in question, as well as taking under a gram of cocaine. 

Kenny told the court how he and a friend had watched a football match before heading to an event at the Motion night club in Bristol.

After the pair returned to their room at around 2.15am, Kenny claims his friend went to bed but he wanted to head out again to party.  

He admitted trying to open door handles to rooms on his floor in a bid to see if anyone was awake and drinking.

The court heard how Kenny then spotted the two women as he returned to his floor after sitting in the hotel reception. 

He told the court: ‘I could see these two girls walking back to their room. I said “hello'” with my arms open in an approachable manner.

Kenny told jurors one woman told him ‘Can you keep the noise down’ after he entered their room in the Ibis hotel.

He claimed it was then that he switched his attention to the second woman, and they engaged in sexual intercourse.

Jurors heard how, after some sleep, Kenny had sex again with one of the women before returning to his room.   

He said: ‘I was exhausted. I stood up and said, “I’m going to go now.”‘

Kenny claimed he was left with scratch marks all over is body, caused by the more aggressive, dominant woman.
