Three in court for sentencing for sexual assault of teenager

Three men are due to be sentenced on Wednesday (11) after being found guilty of rape and sexual assault charges concerning an 18-year-old girl.

Naeem Ahmed, 25, of Westminster Gardens, Barking, and Nabeel Ahmed, 25, of Chadwell Heath Lane took turns to rape the girl after Nabeel picked her up off the street and offered her a place to stay for the night.

Hassan Raza, 24, also of Westminster Gardens, sexually assaulted the teenager hours after the multiple rapes.

The trio were found guilty at Snaresbrook Crown Court in July after a four week trial.

Judge Martyn Zeidman told the men they will face lengthy prison sentences.

He said: “What happened to the girl was terrible and she will never forget it.”

The men were acquitted of all other charges relating to an alleged “sex ring” operating across east London.
