Two teenagers who robbed, stripped and beat a terrified 16-year-old boy at night in a Bradford park have been branded dangerous by a judge as he jailed them.

Mudasser Nadeem, 19, of Victor Terrace, Manningham, was sentenced to five years in custody today.

He received four years’ detention in a young offender institution for the robbery and 12 months for kicking a woman in the face days later.

Judge Peter Benson said Nadeem must serve a three-year extended licence period on his release.

The judge detained Mohammed Iftikar Zaffer, 18, for the protection of the public.

Zaffer, of Frank Street, Great Horton, Bradford, must serve two years in a young offender institution before he is considered for parole. On his release, he will be on licence for the rest of his life.

Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday that Zaffer was convicted of raping and robbing an 11-year-old boy in a Bradford mosque when he was 14.

He was locked up for three years for stealing money from his terrified victim, marching him to a toilet cubicle, beating him with a belt and raping him.

Judge Benson said Zaffer was a serious risk to the public. He picked on vulnerable victims and mercilessly humiliated them.

The court heard that robbery victim, David Procter, of East Yorkshire, was too frightened to return to Bradford.

Before he was attacked in Lister Park at about 3.15am on April 20, he came to the city weekly to visit his father and grandfather and was thinking of moving here.

Judge Benson said the robbery caused considerable outrage in the local community. A photograph of the teenager’s injuries which was carried on the front page of the Telegraph & Argus emphasised “the vicious nature of the grotesque attack”.

The judge said the defendants, and a third youth not before the court, mounted a carefully orchestrated attack.

Nadeem and Zaffer pleaded guilty to robbing him of jewellery, clothing and his phone.

Nadeem also admitted assaulting a 33-year-old woman on April 29 and causing her actual bodily harm.

Prosecutor Bashir Ahmed said Nadeem and another man both had sex with the women late at night in Oak Lane, Manningham. Nadeem then kicked her repeatedly in the head causing cuts, bruising and swelling.

Simon Myers, Nadeem’s barrister, said he had been drinking heavily at the time he committed the offences. He now showed a degree of insight into his behaviour.

Anthony Kelbrick, for Zaffer, said he had reflected on “the wickedness of his ways” in custody.

Detective Inspector Noel Devine, of Bradford South CID, said: “This was a particularly vicious attack on a vulnerable 16-year-old child, who is still struggling to come to terms with what happened to him.

“West Yorkshire Police would like to thank the Telegraph & Argus and the members of the Bradford community who assisted the police in bringing these two dangerous criminals to justice.”
