A PERVERT who sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl at a house party has been jailed after admitting to breaching a court order.

Burnley Crown Court heard how 25-year-old Fayjul Haque, also known as Foyzul Hoque, went on the run from police after being kicked out of his family home earlier this year.

Haque was jailed for three years in 2014 after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl at a house party. He had already been placed on the sex offenders register in 2009 after he assaulted a prostitute who refused to take a cheque as payment.

Prosecuting, Rachel Woods said it was a result of the 2014 conviction that Haque was given the notification requirement, which meant he had to inform police of any change of address within three days or give them a weekly progress update if he was made homeless.

Ms Woods said the order also meant that Haque, of Fifth Avenue, Burnley, had to inform the authorities when he received a new passport, including the name on it and number.

When officers went to Haque’s family home in Fifth Avenue on February 10 for a compliance visit they found that he hadn’t been living there since the previous October.

Ms Woods said: “There had been problems with his behaviour and he was no longer welcome. He had left the address taking all his belongings. He would only return from time to time to time to access any mail.”

Ms Woods said the police began the process of trying to track Haque and searched for him at Angle Street, Burnley. When an officer sent Haque a text telling him to contact the police he rang back saying: “You play your game and I’ll play mine. You’ll never find me. I earn more money than you.” When the officer told Haque an appeal to locate him was going to be released in the media he responded with an expletive, Ms Woods said.

Haque was tracked to a house in Devonshire Road, Burnley, on February 26 and he initially tried to escape by climbing out of a rear window and over a garden fence. When police told him he was surrounded, Haque surrendered.

When the defendant was searched police found a passport in his pocket, which he had received on January 8 but failed to notify the police about.

Haque pleaded guilty to two counts of breaching notification requirements.

Defending, Philip Holden said his client had obtained the passport lawfully when he had lost his previous one.

Mr Holden said: “He did not deliberately set out to breach the order, Since he had been released from his custodial sentence he had complied with the public protection unit when they had been round to the family home. In October following some problems within the family and some difficulties he was having with his partner at the time following a miscarriage was asked to leave the family home. He ought to have contacted the police straight away. I accept on his behalf that he didn’t.”

Judge Nicholas Barker jailed Haque for 12 months.
