Pervert sexually assaulted schoolgirl

A pervert has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl

Joshua O’Keefe will be sentenced at Bradford Magistrates Court in March 2021

The court heard that O’Keefe was working as a parcel delivery person when he approached a 14-year-old girl who was walking her dog in Bradford.

O’Keefe gained the girl’s trust by playing with the dog, before asking the girl if she was single. O’Keefe then  asked the girl for Snapchat, before pouncing on the girl and touching her sexually. 

The attack was caught on cctv on a nearby convenience store.

O’Keefe later added the girl on snapchat and sent explicit pictures and videos of himself masterbating.

He groomed the girl into believing that if she sent him naked pictures of herself, then it would be ok. 

However, the parents of the child discovered the grooming and the police arrested O’Keefe and investigated his online activities including the sexual assault caught on cctv. 

O’Keefe was known in the local area for approaching young girls and making sexual remarks. 

He has since moved to Skegness.
