Aged 20 with 5 children?

Are there no sex-ed classes in Somalia or New Zealand for that matter, this alleged rapist has been here for 12 years and is apparently aged 20.

A Hamilton taxi driver allegedly used cardboard to cover-up in-vehicle security cameras as he sexually assaulted two teen girls.

Abdirahim Sheikh Mohamed Guled, 20, faces charges of sexual violation and kidnapping the first victim in March and kidnapping and indecent assault of the second victim this month.

Both victims are aged in their early teens, with one confirmed as 14.

Guled, of Somali descent who has been in New Zealand for the past 12 years, was supported in the Hamilton District Court yesterday by a large contingent of family and other members of the Somali community.

He has been held in custody since his arrest late last week and yesterday applied for bail, which was refused after police argued that he remain in custody. 

Now for the interesting part:

Yesterday Community Magistrate Jack Best refused a request by Guled’s lawyer, Louis Wilkins, for name suppression after the police argued that they wanted to make an appeal for other possible victims to come forward.

Mr Wilkins argued against a lift of name suppression until his next appearance next month, stating Guled should have more time to tell his wife and five children.

Aged 20 with 5 children already? Or did the Waikato Times stuff up…who would know?
