New Year’s Eve subway sex attacker faces travel ban

A SEX attacker who subjected a woman to a 20-minute ordeal in a subway had his sentence adjourned at the town’s crown court.

Tahmoor Hussain (21), formerly of Princess Street, Nelson, has earlier admitted sexual assault, after striking last New Year’s Eve. The victim, who was molested on a grass verge in Burnley, eventually struggled free and alerted the police.

Hussain will learn his fate on June 6th after Judge Beverly Lunt called for psychological reports.

She warned the defendant: “Don’t think this means you are not going to prison. That’s still the most likely outcome.”

Hussain was bailed on condition he lives in Langho, obeys an 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. curfew and reports to the police station. He is banned from entering Burnley or Padiham except to attend court or when travelling to work accompanied.

The defendant is not allowed to apply for travel documents and must not enter any airport, seaport or the Channel Tunnel.
