AN UNLICENSED taxi driver was jailed after sexually assaulting a passenger and trying to force her into a car.

Married father-of-three Nazrul Islam, 35, of Bruce Road, Bow, attacked the 29-year-old victim on June 15 last year after he dropped her off at her house in Orpington.

Despite denying the offence, Islam was found guilty on Monday of sexual assault at Croydon Crown Court and was sentenced to 14 months in jail as well as being ordered to sign the sex offenders register for 10 years.

The victim caught the cab with a friend in east London and after dropping him off in Blackheath, continued on to her home where they arrived around 2.25am.

When she went to pay him, Islam said: "I don't want your money, I going to stay here" and "I can be your boyfriend".

He then snatched her hand, started kissing it and grabbed her around the waist, picked her up and attempted to force her into the car.

During the struggle he grabbed her breasts and pulled up her skirt. She managed to break free and rushed into the communal area of her home, forcing the door closed. Islam tried but failed to open it.
