A Primark security guard who forced young girls to carry out sex acts after they were caught shoplifting, has been convicted of rape. Zia Uddin took advantage of CCTV blind spots to abuse four year-olds while working at the Kingston branch of the clothing retailer in After catching his vulnerable victims shoplifting, Kingston Crown Court heard that the year-old would threaten the children - saying their parents and the police would be contacted, and that they would be detained for a considerable amount of time, unless they did as he said. He then made clear that the only way for them to be let go without punishment was to perform sexual acts. The security guard was caught out after co-workers spotted strange behaviour, including incorrectly filled out incident paperwork in shoplifting situations and requests for CCTV to be deleted.

A Primark security guard forced four year-old girls to perform sex acts in return for not telling their parents about their alleged shoplifting, a court has heard. Prosecutors said Zia Uddin, 27, attacked them in the control room of the store, threatening to call the police if they did not comply. Uddin, who was employed by Brooknight Security to work at Primark in Kingston upon Thames, southwest London, was found guilty of rape and four counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. Kingston Crown Court heard that colleagues noticed Uddin, who kept condoms in the control room, had not properly completed paperwork to record the shoplifting and had asked for CCTV to be deleted. A spokeswoman for Primark said Uddin had abused the trust placed in him by the company and the security firm that employed him. She said: "This has been a horrendous ordeal for the victims and their families and we are truly sorry for what they have suffered.
