Mohammed Atif Khan Biography
Who is Mohammed Atif Khan?
Mohammed Atif Khan abducted the teenager while in Hemel Hempstead town center on Saturday 28 August last year.
CCTV cameras showed the 37-year-old man backing up and parking after driving past the teenager in the Hertfordshire town.
Khan, from Chesham, Buckinghamshire, forced the victim into his car.
He drove her ten miles away from her waiting area before s*xually assaulting and raping her.
Mohammed Atif Khan kidnapped the 17-year-old girl before driving her ten miles to rape her on August 28 last year.
The rapist then took her traumatized victim back to Hemel Hempstead and where they left her to return to the center of town before her family found her.
The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, bravely told her family what had happened and they called the police.
Last Thursday, March 17, Khan was convicted at Luton Crown Court of four offences, including kidnapping with the intent to commit a s*xual offence, rape, oral rape and penetrative s*xual assault.
Khan abducted the girl while she was waiting for her parents to pick her up on Waterhouse Street in Hemel Hempstead .
Police have praised the teenager’s “incredible courage” for coming forward and giving testimony.
An intense investigation was launched after the crimes, with detectives tracking hours of Automatic Number Plate Recognition and CCTV footage.
They were able to determine the movements of the vehicle used by Khan and identified a white Volkswagen Polo of interest.
In 2018, Khan created a car rental and leasing company, called Stallion Supercars, but it went bankrupt just over a year later.
The white Polo was registered to Khan at an address in Chesham and was recovered by Thames Valley Police.
Arrest and Charged
He was arrested four days after committing the crimes.
Khan was later charged but pleaded not guilty, meaning his victim was forced to testify in court.
The rapist was found guilty by a jury last week and has been taken back into custody ahead of a sentencing hearing in the same court on May 13.
Det Insp Justine Jenkins said: ‘News of this bizarre attack caused understandable and considerable concern in the community at the time.
He was found guilty of multiple offenses following a trial at Luton Crown Court last week.
‘So, I am pleased to share that we have managed to secure a conviction on behalf of the victim.
“She has shown incredible courage throughout the entire investigation and court case.
“Especially after Khan’s refusal to admit what she had done meant she had to endure the trauma of giving testimony.
‘She has been supported by specially trained officers throughout and has also received additional help from partner organisations.
‘Khan has proven to be such a dangerous s*xual predator that, when she saw the victim alone, she decided to shamelessly exploit the situation for her own loathsome gain.
“She is now behind bars as we await the outcome of her sentencing next month.”
