Wembley man accused of offering two girls �5 each for sex

Court hears claims 31-year-old followed them around in Essex town centre

A Wembley man has gone on trial accused of following two girls and offering them �5 each for sex.

Chelmsford Crown Court heard Musheer Kamram, 31, of Eagle Road, told the 12 and 13-year-old who he had followed round Harlow in Essex, he ‘wanted to make love to them’.

Jurors heard the girls fled to a public toilet where they told a cleaner about the problem and security were called.

The girls described the clothes the man who approached them had been wearing and the court was told that Kamram was arrested a few weeks later wearing the same clothes.

Carolyn Gardiner, prosecuting, said: “This is about a man inciting or encouraging two young girls aged 12 and 13 to engage in sexual activity - the fact the girls weren’t persuaded doesn’t matter.

“He followed them and went up to them and said ‘will you be my friend?’ prompting them to walk away but he followed and grabbed one girl’s arm.

“He said ‘come with me’ and she pulled away before they ran to Marks and Spencer. He said ‘don’t run away’ and again followed them as they went to Burger King.”

Miss Gardiner told the cour : “He said ‘we can make love’ or ‘I want to make love to you’, making them feel less and less comfortable and run out of Burger King.

“However, he followed them again and said : ‘I’ll give you both �5 to get into my car - you must get in my car.’ Even more concerned, the girls ran into some toilets to escape where they spoke to a cleaner who contacted security.

“He was arrested on March 10 wearing the same clothes as he had been on February 20 saying he had been to Harlow a few times but hadn’t been there on February 20,”claiming to have been in London.”

The jury was told that Kamram was picked out in an identification process involving nine photos.

Kamram has denied two charges of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity by offering money on February 20 last year.

The trial continues.
