Andrew Brown from Glasgow crept into his victim’s room during the night

A key worker who sexually abused a vulnerable autistic man while working at a care home in Wembley has been jailed.

Andrew Brown, 53, from Glasgow, carried out his depraved acts on the 39-year-old victim after sneaking into his room in the middle of the night on two occasions in 2001.

The victim told his sister in May last year and she informed the police who launched an investigation.

Brown, who admitted two counts of indecent assault, was jailed for 30 months at Harrow Crown Court today.

He was also subject to a sexual offender’s prevention order for the next five years.

DC Jordan McGowan, from the Met’s Sapphire team who investigate sex crimes, said: “Brown was in a position of trust as a key worker at the home; he abused this trusted position that not only the care home placed in him but also the victim and his family.
