A HAIRDRESSER is facing jail after being convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in her home while doing her hair.
Israeli Shay Kaldron, 33, of Tweedy Road, Bromley, pounced while the girl's mother popped out for just seven minutes to pick up her son.
Kaldron, who also uses the name Shaun, told the teenager she was beautiful after slipping his hand under her top and caressing her stomach while she stood in front of a mirror.
He shook his head after he was unanimously convicted of sexual assault by a jury at the Old Bailey.
He had gone to her home in Finchley, north London and while in the bathroom dampening her hair he kissed her on the lips, but she pushed him away. Then as they stood in the mirror discussing what style she should have he assaulted her again.
When the teen's mother returned Kaldron finished the hair cuts for both her and the girl.
The incident was reported to police but officers were unable to track down Kaldron until July last year. He was arrested and interviewed but denied the incident ever took place.
Giving evidence during the trial he continued to deny the incident took place and said it had been a normal appointment.
Judge Roger Chapple QC said: "You have been convicted of sexual assault. Before I decide what the appropriate sentence is I need to know a great deal more about you."
Adjourning the case until next month for a probation report to be prepared, he added: "You should clearly understand that all sentencing options, including custody, remain open."
Kaldron, who denied sexual assault on October 28, 2005, will now have sign the sex offenders' register.
He was released on conditional bail to be sentenced on October 16 at Inner London Crown Court.
