Detectives from Private Detective Plymouth give information regarding personal alarms and security advice services in light of recent Guardian report dated 24 June 2013: Cab driver who raped female passenger jailed for seven years.

According to the recent Guardian report dated 24 June 2013: Cab driver who raped female passenger jailed for seven years, Mohamed Hacene-Chaouch, an unlicensed cab driver had previously been accused of attacking a drunken woman passenger in 2004, but was acquitted. The latest victim, a woman in her twenties, had been out for the night for a friend’s birthday and had become separated from the party. She was quite drunk and drifted in and out of consciousness while in the cab of Hacene-Chaouch . When she woke outside her home she found Hacene-Chaouch sexually assaulting her in the back of the car.

The Guardian report goes on to say that Judge Wendy Joseph QC sentenced Hacene-Chaouch to seven years in jail and to sign the sex offenders register for life. During the case T20137195 at The Old Bailey Judge Wendy Joseph QC said "I haven't heard a single word of remorse in any way, shape or form."

She also said that a pre-sentence report indicated that the offence was related to his attitude towards women and that he was “no stranger to the courts”.

Terry Osmond, spokesperson from Private Detective Plymouth takes a very serious view on people in a situation of trust who blatantly breach that trust. Terry Osmond from Private Detective Plymouth said:

"Mohamed Hacene-Chaouch was in that position and took advantage of the vulnerable and powerless women in his cab".

He suggests that a personal alarm or a spray may have given the young woman some hope of escape but as she was allegedly very drunk she may not have been in a fit state to operate either device. More productive would have been security measures. Private Detective Plymouth offer security devices and advice on how to keep safe. Never leave your friends and do not drink so much that you are unable to function properly are just two of the many words of wisdom offered by detectives at Private Detective Plymouth.
