LONDON — A millionaire was acquitted of raping a teen after only 30 minutes of deliberation, saying he “tripped” onto the young woman.

Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, was accused of raping an 18-year-old woman while she slept on his sofa after drinking the night before, according to the Independent.

She claimed she woke up with Abdulaziz on top of her, forcing himself on her.

Abdulaziz says he was only there to ask her if she wanted a t-shirt to sleep in or a taxi home. Instead, he says she pulled him on top of her, and placed his hands between her legs.

He also claims that the tip of his penis may have been sticking out of the underwear when he fell on her.

“I’m fragile,” Abdulaziz said. “I fell down but nothing ever happened, between me and this girl …”

Even though his semen and DNA were reportedly found inside the woman, he claims the semen was still on his hands from the sex he had minutes earlier with the young woman’s 24-year-old friend.

The women met Abdulaziz, who made millions in property development, at Cirque le Soir night club in London the night before.

The jury at Southwark Crown Court acquitted him in just 30 minutes Tuesday.
