A masseur became aggressive when he was handed an eight year prison sentence for sexually abusing three of his clients.
Mohamed El Alfy, of Hammersmith, became "aggressive" when he was jailed on Friday (7) after being found guilty of two counts of sexual assault and one count of digital penetration.
The 34-year-old took advantage of three clients, who were undressed, when they each visited him for a massage.
El Alfy was first reported to police in 2012 after a 33-year-old woman went for a sports massage at the Happiness Centre in Shepherd's Bush.
He was arrested following a complaint by the 48-year-old woman, who said he assaulted her during a massage, but he denied the allegations and was released on bail.
It took until 2015 for the pervert to be arrested again, after he abused two women in one day at the Hilton Hotel in Brentford.
One, a 45-year-old, attended the health spa at the hotel and El Alfy assaulted her while she lay on her front for a massage.
A 48-year-old woman attended the same health spa to have a facial massage. El Alfy subsequently assaulted her.
Police were phoned, and the 34-year-old was charged.
He was sentenced to eight years in jail at Isleworth Crown Court.
On hearing the guilty verdict El Alfy became aggressive and shouted at the jury that they had only found him guilty because they were women.
El Alfy was also served with a sexual harm prevention order preventing him from working as a masseur and placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely.
Detective Inspector Rory Wilkinson of the Met's Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command said: "El Alfy targeted women he encountered through his job as a masseur, abusing his role to carry out these attacks.
"His sentence of eight years reflects the seriousness of the offences he committed.
"I would also like to commend the victims in the case were to be commended for their bravery in giving evidence in court."
