A man from Harrow has been found guilty of raping a minor after subjecting her to a “horrific reign of abuse” over months. Brijeshkumar Barot was convicted of rape and sexual assault of a 12 year old, who was entrusted to him by her parents. It was informed he would often look after her for short periods of time, between December 2014 and February 2015 and rape and sexually assault her.
Barot was arrested in July 2015 after the girl and her family reported the abuse to police. His phone revealed indecent photos of children, and several suggesting bestiality. Detective Constable Jaime Stevenson said, “Barot is a predatory sex offender who manipulated his time with a child to carry out a horrific reign of abuse. I cannot speak highly enough of the victim and her family who have shown immense bravery in coming to police and supporting this prosecution.”
Barot will be sentenced by the Southwark Crown Court on June 14.
