Man who travelled to Reading to rape children is jailed

A pervert who travelled to Reading with the intention of raping two young children has been sentenced to eight years.

Shahmaan Ahmed, of Roman Road, London, believed the children to be three and eight years old when he travelled from the capital in August 2020 and even bought sweets for the youngsters.

The children were not real, but Ahmed, who also brought ‘sexual item’ with him to the meeting, was arrested by officers from Thames Valley’s Paedophile Online Investigation Team.

He was sentenced to eight years in jail after being found guilty of child sex offences by a jury back in February.
