Former Met Police employee convicted of sexually assaulting teenager in Colindale
A former Metropolitan Police employee and his brother have been found guilty of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in Colindale.
Mohammad Imran Shabbir, 34, who used to be a member of police staff, and Muhammad Farhan Shabbir, 25, were convicted at Harrow Crown Court yesterday.
The court heard how the 34-year-old assaulted the girl at an address in Colindale in May 2011 and the 25-year-old was found guilty of sexual assault between January and March 2011.
The abuse came to light after the victim told a teacher at her school.
Muhammad Farhan Shabbir was arrested at his home address on December 14 and his brother was arrested after attending Wembley police station.
They were bailed pending further enquiries and subsequently charged on Wednesday, June 26 this year.
Detective Constable Luke Williams, from the Child Abuse Investigation Command, said: "The vulnerable young victim in this case showed great courage in coming forward. The Metropolitan Police will tirelessly pursue offenders who exploit the most vulnerable in society."
Both men were acquitted of another sexual assault on the same girl.
They will be sentenced on November 22 at Harrow Crown Court.
