Man jailed for sexual assault at Bordesley Green bus stop

Solihull Editorial 18th Nov, 2023   0

A MAN has been jailed after sexually assaulting a teenager who was waiting at a bus stop in Bordesley Green in the summer.

Nazakat Hussain, of no fixed address, denied the allegation but was found guilty of sexual assault by touching and was jailed for six months.

The court heard that in August this year, the 15-year-old girl was waiting to board a bus with her younger sister when Hussain assaulted her.

The girl immediately told the bus driver who called the police and the 44-year-old was swiftly arrested.

Mark Heffernan, chief operating and safety officer for National Express, said: “Thanks to our driver’s immediate actions to help protect these young girls and the quick work of the police, this man’s arrest and subsequent sentencing sends a clear message that we continue to work closely together to prosecute offenders and make sure that they are brought to justice.”

Inspector Lee Davies from the Safer Travel Police team, said: “We would like to commend the girl for having the bravery to come forward. Her quick actions ensured that Hussain was quickly arrested.




“Everyone should be able to use public transport across the West Midlands safely and we take offences of this kind very seriously.

“Hussain showed no remorse and the judge handed out a jail term after he said that he considered the act to be one of a deliberate nature.”


As well as the prison term Hussain must also notify police of his residence for a period of seven years after his release and he was made subject to a sexual harm prevention order for the same period of time, restricting any unsupervised access with children under the age of 16.

Anybody that is a victim of sexual assault should contact police on 999 if they feel that they are in danger.

Alternatively, call 101 or report the crime through live chat on the West Midlands Police website.
