A ‘dangerous sexual predator’ from Wembley who duped underage girls into stripping and performing sex acts on webcam after grooming them on Facebook has avoided jail.

Mohammed Sarang, 19, of Pembroke Road, befriended the girs after he remotely hacked into the social networking site account of one of his victims’ friends and created a fraudulent account in the name of ‘Nicola Hay’.

He used the guise to pretend to be a modelling agent and led them into believing he could find them jobs but they would need to take part in a webcam audition so he could check their suitability.

During their ‘audition’ he would ask them to undress and perform sexual acts.

Sarang’s identity was revealed when the mother of one of his victims contacted the police after she discovered an online conversation her daughter was having with someone called “Nicola”.

Detectives at the Met and Greater Manchester Police launched a joint investigation that culminated with them raiding Sarang’s home and seizing his computer.

Conversations between him and that victim were found on its hard drive.

Yesterday at Harrow Crown Court he admitted inciting a child under 16 to engage in sexual activity, taking indecent photographs of a child under 16 and causing or inciting child pornography.

He was given a two-year suspended sentence, a supervision order for two years, a five-year Sexual Offences Prevention Order and was ordered to attend a 60-day training programme

Detective Sergeant, Simon Filer of the Sexual Offences Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, fears Sarang may have more victims who have yet to come forward.

He said: “Sarang was using a number of online aliases in order to exploit impressionable young girls into thinking they could become models. Once gaining their trust, he would incite them into performing sexual acts for his own gratification.

“He is a dangerous sexual predator.

“I believe there may be many more people who Sarang has befriended and abused through social media sites. I would ask them to contact me via 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
