Man guilty of double rape

AN ILLEGAL immigrant has been found guilty of the rape of two minors in the southside.

Afghani Sajjad Ahmadzai (38) denied the assault — one of which took place in Pollokshields and another in Rutherglen — between February 2010 and January 2011.

Ahmadzai raped both girls who were aged 13 and 15 at seperate homes in the areas.

The court heard that the 13-year-old was sexually active with adults with the consent of her mother and had a contraceptive implant in her arm.

The court heard was told the mother also allowed her daughter to drink alcopops and she further admitted she was in bed with her daughter and Ahmadzai when the offence took place.

Defence QC Ian Duguid told the court: “She was lying in bed with her mother who was too drunk to be told her daughter was being raped.

“Her mother was having at least four associations with men”.

The 15-year-old was said to have looked to Ahmdazai for refuge prior to being raped.

Ahmadzai has also been convicted at the High Court in Kilmarnock of sexual assault on a teenage boy.
