A man has been convicted of assault, sexual assault and causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity in Buckingham.

Gurdeep Singh, 24, of no fixed abode, was sentenced on Tuesday to three years and three months imprisonment at Aylesbury Crown Court.

He had pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing at the same court on June 14 to one count of assault, one count of sexual assault and one count of attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity.

The charges relate to three separate incidents on streets in Buckingham on May 13, when Singh grabbed a girl by the wrist, grabbed another girl by the waist and attempted to kiss her, and attempted to engage a third victim in sexual activity.

Investigating officer PC Graham Labrum, from Buckingham and District Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This conviction sends out the message Thames Valley Police will work tirelessly and make every effort to ensure those who commit sexual offences are brought before the courts to face justice.

“This was a highly stressful encounter for all three young females to have to go through. I would like to praise their courage in providing us the evidence required to convict Singh for these crimes.

“Thames Valley Police takes all reports of sexual offences seriously and works to provide appropriate support to victims. If you have been a victim of a sexual offence come forward and speak to police – you will be listened to and dealt with sensitively – and you can do this by calling 101.”
