Man denies rape after climbing in window
AN INTRUDER alleged to have climbed in through a window and raped a mum in front of her son said he did enter the property, but that sex was consensual.
Dwaine Bryer told a jury he climbed into the kitchen of the Bristol flat and initially chatted to the woman before intimacy occurred.
He said they then had an argument and she jumped from her home.
He told Bristol Crown Court: "I didn't rape her. I didn't push her. I didn't say nothing to make her jump."

Bryer, 26, of Bury Hill View, Downend, denies rape and inflicting grievous bodily harm in July last year.
It is alleged that, after demanding that the women go into her son's bedroom, the intruder ripped off her underwear and forced himself on her, ignoring her screams to stop.
Her son is said to have told Bryer: "Why are you sexing my mummy, get off her" before the victim managed to jump from the property, breaking her back.
Bryer conceded he went to the flat in the early hours of the morning after noticing the kitchen window was open.
He said the woman told him off for scaring her, and he apologised, before they went into her son's bedroom and talked.
He told the court: "We kissed and one thing led to another.
"I took my clothes off and she took her clothes off. We started having sex."
Bryer told the jury the woman's son, who had been in his mum's room, then came in and asked him what he was doing.
Bryer said he told the child he and his mum were just chatting and the boy went back to bed.
Moments later, said Bryer, he and the woman had an argument which turned into a shouting match and ended with her running naked from her home and jumping.
Neighbours of the woman told the jury they saw her and a man, both naked, outside her flat.
One said the man was hitting her with "full force punches" all over her body and the woman was crying "Help me, help me!"
Another neighbour also described seeing the naked pair, with the woman crying for help, and saw the man punch her to her upper body.
She told the court: "I shouted 'I'm coming down now!' I've got quite a deep voice and I thought he would have thought I was a man."
She said she went outside, realised the woman had fallen and she went to comfort her before an ambulance arrived minutes later.
The case continues.
