Man jailed for rape

November 26, 2012, 12:39 pm

A lodger who raped a 12-year-old girl in her home address has today,
Monday 26 November, been sentenced to 14 years’ imprisonment.

Ahmed Shirinzoy, 22 (20.03.90) of no fixed address was convicted on
Thursday 4 October of two counts of raping a child following a trial at
Isleworth Crown Court.

The court heard that on Tuesday 29 May at about 16:00hrs, Shirinzoy was
lodging at an address in Hayes when his 12-year-old victim arrived home.

Shortly after her arrival, on the pretext he wanted to ‘borrow’ her
families hoover, Shirinzoy approached the young girl, made advances
towards her before punching her several times and then raping her.

Following her ordeal the child managed to run away and raise the alarm.
The police were called and Shirinzoy was arrested a short time later at
the address.

He was interviewed by detectives from Sapphire but denied the
allegations put to him.

Shirinzoy insisted that he had visited a friend who had given him a
drink spiked with something which caused memory loss.

Toxicology tests later disproved Shirinzoy’s defence, as did DNA
evidence taken from his victim.

Detective Constable Lucy Mawdsley, Sapphire, said: “Shirinzoy is quite
obviously a predatory sex offender who subjected his victim – a child –
to the most horrendous of ordeals. I would like to pay tribute to this
young girl who was incredibly brave and courageous in reporting the rape
to the police and having the strength to give evidence against him.

“I hope that his sentence today gives other victims confidence that
Sapphire are here for them, will believe them and will conduct our
investigations professionally. We want rapists and those committing
other sex offences to know that our dedicated teams are committed to
ensuring we arrest them – I hope that Shirinzoy’s conviction today helps
to reinforce that message.”
