Gurpinder Singh Ghuman ages 41 has pleaded guilty to false imprisonment with intent to commit a sexual offence at Maidstone Crown Court.
The man forced a teenage girl in a storage room inside the Gravesend Gurdwara Sahib and sexually assaulted her. The man was jailed for four and a half years this past on December 23rd.
The young girl was forced into the storeroom by first having her hold the door open while he carried supplies inside. After the girl was inside the storage room, he shut the door and held her by the mouth.
The girl was able to escape the room and stated to authorities that she’d never seen the man before.
Investigating officer PC Hollie Brown said: “This was a terrifying attack on a young girl, who has shown great bravery throughout the proceedings.
“Ghuman tricked his innocent victim into a room where he grabbed her around the mouth and attempted to sexually assault her.
“We carried out extensive enquiries to identify Ghuman, and I am pleased that he is now behind bars and away from the community.”
