A man has been jailed for 17 years for repeatedly raping a vulnerable woman.
Abdul Hanif, 30, from Bradford, befriended his victim before going on to rape and assault her, police said.
Hanif, of Chapel Lane, was found guilty on three counts of rape and one of assault at Bradford Crown Court.
He was placed on the sex offenders register for life and the judge also imposed an order banning Hanif from contacting his victim.
Det Con Brett Carter, of West Yorkshire Police, said: "Hanif befriended his victim when she was vulnerable, but then went on to repeatedly rape and assault her.
"This must have been a harrowing ordeal for her and we would like to thank her for the courage she has shown in coming forward and reporting Hanif's crimes."
