Sex attacker, Ali Husseini has sentence increased

A man who was jailed for a series of sex attacks on women in Tower Hamlets in London has had his sentence increased from six years and nine months' imprisonment to nine years.

Ali Husseini, 27, sexually assaulted three women in separate attacks while they were walking along a pedestrian underpass.

During his trial at the Old Bailey, the court heard how Husseini would follow lone women into the subway underneath the A12 in the Poplar area.

In August 2020, he followed a 32-year-old woman as she returned home from nearby shops, before grabbing her neck and sexually assaulting her. The victim was able to bite Husseini's arm before running away.

A few weeks later, Husseini targeted a heavily pregnant woman as she walked along the same underpass on her way back to work. The victim heard footsteps behind her and Husseini slapped her from behind, causing the victim to scream and run away.Latest Post
