Pervert caught by paedophile hunting team

A pervert has been jailed after he groomed what he believed was a 12 year old girl online

Tauseef Ahmed, 30 of Harrow appeared at court where he pleaded guilty to:

  • Attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child

  • Attempting to meet a child following sexual grooming

The court heard that Ahmed had contacted the online profile of who he believed belonged to a 12 year old girl. After the child replied with her name and age, Ahmed went on to send highly sexualised chat with the clear intent of engaging the child into sexual activity

Ahmed arranged to meet the child, but was greeted by paedophile hunting ‘Cobra’ who pose online as children in a bid to catch sexual predators who target children

The team questioned Ahmed on his internet activity and rang the police, who arrived swiftly to arrest Ahmed.

Ahmed was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment 

He was handed a ten year sexual harm prevention order and was told that he must register as a sex offender for ten years
