Predator who sexually assaulted young girl jailed after he was hunted down using forensic evidence

A predator who sexually assaulted a young girl has been jailed after he was hunted down by detectives using forensic evidence.

Ahmed Deq Mohamed 20, attacked a girl under the age of 13, a court heard.

He was arrested within five days of his crime after his DNA was linked to the assault in June 2023.

Mohamed, from south east London, was sentenced to four years and six months in jail at Inner London Crown Court on Wednesday.

He has already been found guilty of sexually assaulting the child under 13 by penetration, following a trial at the same court.

Detective Constable Oliver Colville, who led the investigation, said: “I would like to praise the victim for initially coming forward to police, and for reporting this repulsive behavior from Mohamed. The compelling video account provided by her assisted with the forensic evidence that we had, making it enough to convict Mohamed.

“Both the victim and her family have received specialist care and support throughout this trial, and the victim will continue to be supported by officers following today’s sentencing.

“Mohamed will now face a significant amount of jail time, highlighting that we take every case extremely seriously. “I hope this encourages anyone who has been a victim of sexual offenses to come forward and speak to us.”

Mohamed has been sentenced to four years and six months in jail with 12 months on license after he appeared at Inner London Crown Court on 22 May. He was previously found guilty of sexually assaulting a child under 13 by penetration, following a trial at the same court.

Mohamed was found guilty on Friday, 16 February following a trial at Inner London Crown Court.

He will now also be subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
