A Rochdale man who intended on sexually assaulting a mother while she slept in her home has been jailed for four years in Manchester this morning.
Sixty one year old Sikander Khan of Park Hill was sentenced after a jury found him guilty of trespassing with intent to commit a sexual offence.
The court heard how on the night of Tuesday 10 October 2017 the victim was asleep at her home in Rochdale with her children.
At around 11pm Khan went into the house without permission and made his way upstairs.He went into the woman’s bedroom but the victim woke up and confronted him before demanding he leave.She called the police and on Saturday 14 October 2017 Khan was arrested.
Detective Constable Russ Clarke, from GMP’s Rochdale borough, said: “This incident has understandably had a profound effect on the victim and her children. It took place within their home, a place where you should be able to feel safe.
“Khan didn’t once think about the victim or her children and instead sought to satisfy his own selfish and perverse sexual desires.
“Throughout this investigation and trial, Khan refused to admit his true intentions that night and instead attempted to evade punishment by fabricating a web of lies.
“It is thanks to the consistent bravery of the victim and her family, that he has today been sentenced to 4 years and signed the sexual harm prevention order for life.”
