A sex attacker from Hounslow who dragged a terrified schoolboy into a deserted service yard and raped him twice has been jailed.

Amir Faizi, 22, of Charter Crescent, was given an indeterminate sentence at Isleworth Crown Court on Thursday after pleading guilty to the attack on April 22 last year.

He could be considered for parole in less than two and a half years but Judge McGregor Johnson vowed he will only be released once he is no longer considered a risk to the public.

Det Sgt Katie Lilburn, of the specialist Sapphire Unit, said: "I cannot express more highly admiration for the courage that the victim of Faizi has shown.

"Without the support of him and his family throughout this investigation Faizi may not have been held accountable for his actions and would be free to prey on other victims."

The court heard Faizi preyed on his 18-year-old victim as he waited for a night-bus in Bath Road, near Hounslow West tube station, at around 2.30am.

When the teenager rebuffed Faizi's invitation to take him home, he was punched and dragged into the yard behind Lambournes estate agents and raped twice.
