A pervert taxi driver who picked up young women and sexually assaulted them has been jailed.
And Rezgar Hassan, 22, of High Street, Dover, faces deportation after his stint in prison.
Canterbury Crown Court heard Hassan was driving a taxi in Market Square in the early hours of January 27 last year when he accepted a fare from a 19-year-old woman and her two friends.
The victim sat in the front seat of the taxi and during the course of the journey, felt Hassan put his hand on her leg. He then inappropriately touched her.
The victim told her friends and the following day reported it to police.
Hassan was arrested and was later picked out in identity parade.
In a second assault, in the early hours of March 10, 2013, a 17-year-old girl was waiting at the train station at Dover Priory.
Hassan offered the teenager a lift home in his taxi to Folkestone for free.
He told her to sit in the back seat with a cover over her as he had another passenger to collect. Once that person had been dropped off, she got in the front seat.
Hassan told her to recline her seat and then started asking intimate questions. He told her if she showed him her breasts, he would let her go.
He then pulled her top down and inappropriately touched her before allowing her to get out.
Hassan was found guilty of two counts of sexual assault will be on the Sex Offenders’ Register indefinitely, and has also been recommended for deportation.
