Aston man jailed for forcing woman to perform sexual act
An Aston man has been jailed for two years after forcing a woman to perform a sexual act on him in a car park.
Shahinun Islam, of Aldersea Drive in Aston, was on a night out in Birmingham city centre on Saturday 25 July 2015, when he got talking to a woman.
After a while, Islam told the woman he was leaving and asked her to accompany him in his car.
Instead of going home, Islam drove the woman to a desolated car park in the Nechells area of Birmingham, where he subjected her to a graphic sexual assault.
Islam forced the woman to perform a sexual act on him and when she attempted to contact police on her phone, he bit her hand so deeply, it caused the skin to pierce.
The woman managed to eventually escape from the car, but was horrified to find he was chasing her.
It was only when a member of the public intervened, that the woman felt safe again. At which point, Islam ran away.
Following lengthy investigations, Shahinun Islam was charged with rape in August this year, after DNA evidence came to light and linked him to the incident.
The 27-year-old was sentenced to two years imprisonment at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday 22 September and was also ordered to register on the sex offenders list for 10 years.
DC Danette Calvey, from the Central Sexual Offences team, said: “This sentencing shows that sexual assaults should not and will not be tolerated.
“This brave woman had the courage to come forward and let us know of the absolute terror she was put through.
“It’s vital to always report such incidents to the police. We are here to help and bring those committing such crime to justice.”
