A rapist who attacked a 12-year-old girl has today been jailed for 14 years.

Ahmed Shirinzoy, attacked the victim at an address in Hayes. He had claimed that he had visited a friend who had given him a spiked drink, causing memory loss.

The 22-year-old was sentenced to 14 years in prison after he was convicted of two counts of rape last month following a trial at Isleworth Crown Court

The court heard that on May 29 Shirinzoy was lodging at the address when his victim returned home.

On the pretext he wanted to ‘borrow’ her families vacuum cleaner, Shirinzoy approached the girl, made advances towards her before punching her several times and then raping her.

Following her ordeal, the child managed to run away and raise the alarm. Police were called and Shirinzoy was arrested a short time later at the address.

Toxicology tests later disproved Shirinzoy’s defence of memory loss, as did DNA evidence taken from his victim.

Detective Constable Lucy Mawdsley, 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.”
