Two men have been convicted of sexual offences against a teenage girl, whilst another has been found guilty of intending to pervert the course of justice.


This is the statement from Thames Valley Police

Bilal Ahmed, aged 27, of Suffolk Road, Maidenhead, was convicted by a jury on Wednesday (4/06) of one count of sexual assault and sentenced to three and a half years.

Zeeshan Ahmed, aged 28, formerly of Palmer Road, Wood Farm, Oxford, was also convicted of one count of doing an act intending to pervert the course of justice and given 18 months.

Mustafa Ahmed, aged 26, of Harrow Road, London, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault on Friday (30/5) and will be sentenced at a later date.

The convictions followed a trial at Oxford Crown Court lasting two-and-a-half weeks.

Mustafa Ahmed On 17 December 2011, Bilal Ahmed and Mustafa Ahmed sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl at a property in Cowley Road, Oxford.

Both were arrested late last year, as part of the ongoing Operation Bullfinch investigation into child sexual exploitation.

Zeeshan Ahmed, the cousin of Bilal, threatened the victim when he heard the allegations and told her that she would be shot if she did not stop talking to police.

Operation Bullfinch Senior Investigating Officer Det Supt Joe Kidman said: "I would like to commend the courage of this brave young woman who gave evidence against the men who committed these serious sexual assaults on her when she was a child. We will continue to work closely with Social Services to support victims, whatever their age now and whenever the abuse occurred.

"It has been over a year since a jury at the Old Bailey in London found seven men guilty of dozens of offences against young women in Oxford.

"The convictions here today show that Operation Bullfinch is continuing in earnest, with Thames Valley Police, the Crown Prosecution Service and Oxfordshire County Council working hard to protect vulnerable people and ensure that justice prevails. As an investigation team we are pleased to see offenders put behind bars and so reduce the risk to young people.

"If you have been the victim of sexual abuse, or may know of someone who has been a victim or offender, please contact us. We will listen to you and support you."
