A second teen, Taasen Mohammed, 18, has also been charged with raping the same woman on one of the occasions.

Sallaj and Mohammed’s case was adjourned as it can only be dealt with at the higher courts.

They are now due to appear at Oxford Crown Court on May 16 for a plea and trial preparation hearing.

It is listed to take place at 10.30am.
