Share This Article:
A man who toured the country to prey on drunk girls at parties is now behind bars for twelve years. Tahir Nazir, 40, from Glasgow, targeted women at freshers events across the country. He rented a car and drove 7,000 miles visiting universities in Aberdeen, Bristol, Cardiff, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Manchester and Oxford. The court heard how the divorcee had searched online for “high school girls” and “freshers week” as well as “Swansea University Students Union”. Nazir also surveilled student accommodation, taking 38 images of the Victoria Halls at the University of Manchester. Police found a fake University of Glasgow student card as well as empty packets of Viagra in his car. At Manchester Crown Court, Nazir was convicted of trespass with intent to commit an offence, three counts of trespass with intent to commit a sexual offence, sexual assault and attempted rape. We reported on the unrelated spate of sexual assaults in Cardiff last September. Nazir was found on top of a drunk female student after breaking in through a window, on 22nd September. He fled the house in Cathays when her friend woke up, but later returned and propositioned the victim and her friend before their other housemates forced him out.
