Ipswich: Father-of-one found guilty of sexual assaults on buses

A married father-of-one has been jailed for 18 weeks after being found guilty of indecently assaulting three women on buses in Ipswich last year.

Mohammed Jainul Abdeen, 35, pleaded not guilty to the three offences.

However, he was convicted after a two-day trial at South East Suffolk Magistrates Court.

He was sentenced to six weeks in prison for each offence to run consecutively and must sign on the Sex Offenders Register for the next seven years.

The unemployed resident of Norwich Road committed his first offence on a bus in Ipswich on September 30 2010, when he indecently touched a 38-year-old woman.
