Three years jail for Huddersfield man who sexually assaulted vulnerable women

A Huddersfield man who sexual assaulted vulnerable women has been jailed.

Naveed Khawaja of Yew Street, Huddersfield was jailed for three years at Leeds Crown Court on 9 May after being convicted of three sexual assaults.

The 55-year-old was arrested on 11 October 2021 following a report that a male had attended at the home of a victim earlier that month.

Once in the house he committed a sexual assault on the victim who was particularly vulnerable.

An investigation was launched by officers from Kirklees CID who on reviewing the offence, linked Khawaja with two unsolved offences in Bradford from July 2017 and October 2019.

In both of them, vulnerable women had been sexually assaulted.

Following a detailed investigation, the 53-year-old was charged with all of the offences in September 2022.

Detective Inspector Simon Reddington of Kirklees CID, said: “Khawaja is a predatory sex offender who offended against vulnerable victims and we welcome his conviction and sentencing.

“All reports of sexual offending are treated extremely seriously by West Yorkshire Police and we continue to urge victims to come forwards.

“As this case shows, even where it may not be initially possible to bring a prosecution, unsolved cases are not forgotten and new evidence can come to light which makes it possible to put a suspect before the courts.”

He added: “West Yorkshire Police is absolutely committed to making women and girls safer and does all it can to get offenders like Khawaja off our streets.”
