Mohamed El Alfy who worked as a ‘Masseur’ (a person who provides massage professionally) has been jailed for eight years on two counts of sexual assault and one count of digital penetration which he committed against female clients whilst he worked.
The court heard that in 2012, a 33-year-old woman attended the Happiness Centre, Uxbridge Road for a sports massage. Whilst she lay naked except for a towel, El Alfy sexually assaulted her during a massage.
The victim reported the offence to police and El Alfy was arrested. He denied the offence and was released pending further enquiries.
In 2015, a 45-year-old woman attended the health spa at the Hilton Hotel, Syon Park, Brentford and whilst she lay on her front for a massage, El Alfy sexually assaulted her.
Another 48-year-old woman attended the same health spa on the same day and whilst El Alfy was administering a facial massage, he sexually assaulted her.
At the conclusion of the court case on July 7, El Alfy was found guilty of all three offences.
On hearing the guilty verdict El Alfy became aggressive and shouted at the jury that they had only found him guilty because they were women.
He was sentenced to two years imprisonment for both sexual assaults and four years’ imprisonment for the digital penetration – all sentences to run consecutively.
El Alfy was also served with a sexual harm prevention order preventing him from working as a masseur and placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely.
