Six men have been convicted of the historic grooming and raping of vulnerable underaged girls in Rotherham.
Masaued Malik (35), Aftab Hussain (40), Abid Saddiq (38), Sharaz Hussain (35), and two men aged 33 and 35 who cannot be named for legal reasons were found guilty of charges including the rape and sexual assault of seven girls under the age of 16 between 1998 and 2002, following an eight week trial at Sheffield Crown Court.
Saddiq - Counts - Rape - Indecent - Assault
Saddiq was convicted of two counts of rape, five of indecent assault, and two of child abduction, while Sharaz Hussain, Malik, and Aftab Hussain were convicted of indecent assault. The two others were convicted of indecent assault and rape. The six men will be sentenced on Friday.
The National Crime Agency, the British equivalent of the FBI, described the victims as “vulnerable and craving attention and love” when they were “deliberately targeted for the sole purpose of becoming sexual objects for the men”.
Statement - NCA - Time - None - Maturity
Continuing in a statement, the NCA said: “At the time, none of them had the maturity to understand they were being groomed and exploited, believing that sex was some kind of ‘necessary price’ for friendship.
“They were given alcohol and drugs, belittled, and passed around to other men for their gratification, and were vulnerable because of their need to be loved. All seven suffer the emotional effects of the abuse to this day.”
Abusers - Rotherham - Areas - Feature - Offending
All of the abusers lived in Rotherham and surrounding areas, and “a feature of their sexual offending was they would often act as a group, happy to share girls around amongst each other.”
The law enforcement agency detailed that all of the felons knew the girls were underage and would regularly park outside of the girls’ schools, waiting for them. They were also said to be often hanging around parks, bus stations, or in Rotherham town...
