A PIZZA shop owner from Worksop has denied raping two women and indecently assaulting a third.
A ten day trial at Nottingham Crown Court heard allegations that Sherif Khalil, 57, carried out the offences over more than a decade.
The jury was told one of the alleged rape victims was aged between 11 and 15 at the time.
Khalil of Sandy Lane, Worksop, had a financial interest in a pizza shop in South Yorkshire and had worked at pizza parlours in Worksop and elsewhere in north Notts.
He pleads not guilty to a total of 15 charges including four counts of rape of the younger woman.
It is claimed he raped the other woman, in her mid-30s, in 2005.
He also faces charges of indecently touching a third woman who was aged between 15 and 17 at the time.
