DNA and phone data analysis results in dangerous sex offender being jailed

A sexual predator has been jailed following an investigation by officers from the Met’s Central East Safeguarding Team in Tower Hamlets.

Khayrul Islam, 29 (17.03.95) of Ropley Street, E2 appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Wednesday, 5 June where he was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment for two counts of rape, two counts of sexual assault by penetration and one count of sexual assault by touching against a 14-year-old girl.

He was also given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order with strict conditions that will allow the police to monitor him for 15 years.

Islam had previously been convicted following trial at the same court on Monday, 8 January.

Detective Sergeant Michael Dixon, of the Met’s Central East Safeguarding Team covering Tower Hamlets, said: "Khayrul Islam is a dangerous sex offender who deliberately targeted a young vulnerable girl and lured her into a situation where he could sexually assault and rape her."

During trial the court heard how Islam, who was known to the victim’s family, had contacted the victim on her 14th birthday and invited her to his home to celebrate. The child went to the address where Islam gave her alcohol until she was drunk and then attacked her.

After the attack the girl managed to run from the address leaving behind some of her belongings. She was distraught and cried out that she had been raped. Thankfully, members of the public came to her immediate aid and flagged down a passing police car.

In her shocked state the girl couldn’t remember which address she had run from, but she had Islam’s phone number which officers used to trace his address. He was arrested that same day on suspicion of rape.

The victim’s account of the events of that day were corroborated by DNA evidence and phone data.

DS Dixon added: "Rape is a violent offence that is about control and power over someone, it has no similarity to consensual sex. The long term effects on anyone would be devastating, but so much more for a child.

“I want to thank the survivor of this offence for not only coming forward, but for her bravery throughout the entire judicial process. I hope that her example encourages other victims of sexual offences to come forward.“
