A 28-year old man has been convicted for a string of indecent exposure and sexual assaults against Jewish women and girls in Stamford Hill.

Met police detectives compiled hours of CCTV footage and pieced together Mohammed Amin’s movements by tracking his GPS through his bike hire accounts.

With guidance from private Jewish safety patrol group Shomrim, specialist officers provided support to the victims throughout the investigation.

Mohammed Amin, 28 of Sparsholt Road, N19, appeared at the Old Bailey on Friday 10th May where he was sentenced to two years and ten months in prison. He was jailed after committing four sexual offences against four victims over a three-month period in 2021. The youngest victim was 12.

Detective Constable Patrick Godin, who led the investigation said: “Today’s sentence demonstrates how seriously we take incidents of this nature. Our local team are committed to pursuing predators who threaten the safety of women and girls in their own neighbourhood.

“We did everything we could to take this perverse individual off the streets of Stamford Hill and were supported throughout by the local Shomrim. I’d like to thank the Shomrim for their continued help during this case – they were able to use their knowledge of the area to help us quickly identify Amin and provided vital guidance and advice.

“It’s important that we work with partners and listen to community concerns. It’s our job and duty to act on any information and make Londoners as safe as they can be.”

Amin had previously been found guilty at Wood Green Crown Court on Tuesday, 19 March of sexual assault on a female, causing a child aged 13-15 to watch/ look at an image of sexual activity, exposure and attempted exposure.
