    The woman said: “I felt the word ‘rape’ meant like a stranger or in an alleyway.

    “But he was my friend and it was his house.”

    The witness, 22 at the time, is one of three women allegedly raped by Mendy during a pool party at his mansion in Mottram St Andrew, Cheshire, in July 2021.

    When first questioned she told officers she did not want to get involved.

    The trial continues at Chester crown court.
