When the woman - who said she was left bleeding after the assault - refused to carry out a s*x act on Mendy, he said she was "too shy", the court heard.
She claims she then told him: "I’m not shy, I just don’t want to have s*x with you."
Mendy allegedly replied: "It’s fine, I’ve had s*x with 10,000 women."
He added "don't tell anyone and you can come over here every night" like it was a "privilege" to have s*x with him, she said.
