Paedophile jailed after being caught sexually abusing young girl by victim’s mother

A paedophile who was caught sexually abusing a girl by her mother, has been jailed for seven years.

Davis Kigozi, 25, preyed on two victims while in relationships with older women they knew and police fear he may have targeted other children who have not yet come forward.

He sexually assaulted the first victim in May 2017 at her home in Charlton, south-east London. The girl, who was 13 at the time of the attack, managed to escape from Kigozi and locked herself in a separate room. 

Kigozi threatened to kill himself if the girl told anyone what had happened, London’s Metropolitan Police said.

Almost exactly a year later, Kigozi was in a different relationship and targeted his second victim.

Police said he had been drinking at the 13-year-old victim’s home in Colindale, north London, when he made his way into her bedroom and sexually assaulted her. 

“During the attack, the girl’s mother came into the bedroom and disturbed Kigozi,” a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said. “He tried to blame the abuse on another family member but police were called and Kigozi was arrested.”

Kigozi, of no fixed address, was found guilty of four counts of sexual activity with a child and two counts of sexual activity with a child by penetration. He was jailed for seven years on Friday. 

Kigozi will also be made to sign the sex offenders register and be subject to a sexual harm prevention order.

Detective Constable Jackie McKenzie-Bell, who led the investigation, said: “Kigozi is a sexual predator who abused his position of trust to assault two vulnerable girls. I can only hope his conviction can give them some form of closure to their ordeal.

“Given the similarity of Kigozi’s offences, it cannot be discounted that he has abused other children. I would appeal to anyone who has been a victim of Kigozi to come forward and speak to police. There are specially trained officers to support you and who will strive to obtain justice for you.”
