Man raped two girls in Glasgow flats

A man from Afghanistan has been found guilty of raping two young girls at flats in Glasgow.

Sajjad Ahmadzai, an illegal immigrant, denied committing the offences at flats in Pollokshields and Rutherglen between February 2010 and January 2011.

The 38-year-old was said to have raped a girl of 13 whose mother allowed her to have sex with adults and a 15-year-old who had sought refuge with him.

Sentence was deferred until March for background reports.

Ahmadzai was remanded in custody.

The 38-year-old was also convicted at the High Court in Kilmarnock of sexually assaulting a teenage boy.

The two-week trial heard sordid tales of youngsters visiting the flats occupied by Asian men.

The court heard the mother of the 13-year-old knew she was having sex with men and had a contraceptive implant in her arm.

She allowed her daughter to drink alcopops with Ahmadzai while she was in a bedroom having sex with another man.

The 50-year-old woman admitted she shared a bed with her daughter while Ahmadzai had sex with the girl.

Ian Duguid QC, defending, told the court: "She was lying in bed with her mother who was too drunk to be told her daughter was being raped.

"Her mother was having at least four associations with men."

The woman said: "I know I've not been a good mother. I know I shouldn't have taken her there."
