Man Jailed For Rape Of 12-Year-Old Girl In Hayes
Monday 26th November 2012
A lodger who raped a 12-year-old girl in her home in west London has been jailed for 14 years.
Ahmed Shirinzoy, 22, attacked the victim in Hayes in May.
He was found guilty of two two counts of raping a child following a trial at Isleworth Crown Court.
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.
"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."
