Khalid Mohammad, 42, of Sherrard Road, London has been sentenced to 12 months for sexual assault and fraud.

Detective constable Emily Addison, of Force CID based in High Wycombe, said: “Khalid Mohammad met the victim on a dating app, on which Mohammad fraudulently claimed he was a car salesman.

“Mohammad started corresponding with the victim and offered to sell her a car, to which the victim agreed and paid the defendant a £400 deposit.

“Mohammad promised to deliver the car to the victim’s address in High Wycombe, on the evening of August 21 this year.

“However, when he arrived at the property he was drunk and without the vehicle.

“Mohammad told the victim that his colleague would deliver the vehicle later that evening, and asked if he could wait for his colleague inside her house.

“While inside the property, Mohammad sexually assaulted the victim, who then asked him to leave.

“Mohammad never delivered the vehicle, and failed to reimburse the victim.

“The offences were reported to Thames Valley Police on August 23, and Mohammad was quickly established as a suspect. He was arrested on September 2 and charged with the offences the following day.

“I want to thank the victim for the courage and bravery she has shown during this terrible ordeal.”

Mohammad will also be on the sex offenders register for 10 years after pleading guilty to one count of sexual assault and one count of fraud by false representation.

He was ordered to pay the victim compensation in relation to the fraud offence.
