https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/black-country/controlling-boyfriend-raped-partner-made-16245095 A controlling thug made an ex-partner watch Islamic faith videos to 'become a better girlfriend' while subjecting her to rape and regular beatings. Mohammed Khan put the young woman through 18 months of sheer torment and was violent towards her within days of striking up a relationship. The victim was brutally attacked by Khan on numerous occasions. He once pinned her against a wardrobe by the throat, while another shocking outburst saw him chip several of her teeth after punching her in the face as they sat in his car. In April last year, he sunk to new lows when he orally raped her following a violent argument. The 23-year-old also made his ex-partner watch instructional videos on how to conduct herself and warned she faced consequences − including threats of violence against her and her family − should she reject his advances. Khan's sick behaviour was uncovered after the woman's family contacted West Midlands Police after growing increasingly concerned about the drastic change in her behaviour and appearance. Specialist officers from the force’s Public Protection Unit worked with Black Country Women’s Aid to offer her immediate help and support and in April, she plucked up the courage to submit a formal police complaint against Khan, of Woodbourne Road in Smethwick . Khan was then charged with four counts of rape and two of coercive control and following a trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court. He was found guilty on one count of rape and the control offences. On Thursday (May 2), he was jailed for 12 years and put on the sex offenders register for life. The jury found him not guilty on the other rape charges. Detective Inspector Cate Webb-Jones from the force’s Public Protection Unit, said: “This young woman completely changed her behaviour in order to please Khan; she missed exams, lied about her injuries and stopped wearing make-up. “Fortunately family members spotted these signs and reported it to the police. “Part of Khan’s abuse was teaching her she couldn’t say ‘no’ to him; he warned that if she did he’d go elsewhere for his gratification. "And such was the control he had over her, she stayed with him and said she still loved him despite the fact he subjected her to awful physical and sexual violence. "In interview, the woman also told our officers that she was made to watch Islamic faith videos as it would make her a better partner. “This is one of the worst cases of coercive control we have seen and I’m pleased that a dangerous offender - one that presents a clear threat to women - has been jailed for a long time."
