Six arrested over sexual child abuse and neglect in Glasgow
Six people have been arrested as part of a police investigation into reports of child sexual exploitation in the Govanhill area of Glasgow.
A specialist unit was ordered to look into allegations which surfaced last year regarding Roma children.
Five males and one female have been arrested and charged in connection with offences relating to child sexual abuse and neglect.
One of the males has already appeared in court.
The others have been the subject of reports to prosecutors.
Police say work is continuing with other agencies to ensure children who may be at risk are protected.
John Dickson used his pet snake, named Mitch, to torture his victims
John Dickson, 38, from North Lanarkshire, Scotland used his pet snake, named Mitch, to abuse one woman, performing a series of vile acts while he raped her, the High Court in Glasgow heard.
Between 2000 to 2017, the former labourer tortured four women who mainly lived in Motherwell, subjecting them to horrific abuse.
He was found guilty of five charges, including rape and domestic abuse.
Police found one of Dickson’s victims hiding in a cupboard near his flat, holding on to a knife for fear her abuser would return and beat her.
Judge Graema Buchanan from the High Court in Glasgow said Dickson’s victims had suffered “degrading and humiliating” ordeals.
He told Dickson: “This was a course of criminal conduct of a quite extreme nature and you have shown no remorse whatsoever.”
Dickson’s first victim recalled how he used to force himself on her, raping her over a five-year period., she added: “I would say to him, ‘No, I don’t want to’.”
Prosecutor Duncan McPhie told jurors: “This all occurred on a number of occasions – three to four times a week between 2000 and 2005.”
Dickson’s threw his 9ft long snake onto his victims
Dickson’s second victim revealed how he had raped her – even when she was asleep – and was “terrified” when he used his pet snake to torture her.
The victim said she was spit on, beaten and attacked so frequently she felt the abuse was “normal”.
Dickson subjected her to verbal abuse, calling her “slut” and other derogatory names, and even raped her at a toilet while the pair were on a train to Edinburgh, Scotland.
Mr McPhie said: “She told a policeman that he had assaulted her.
Dickson, 38, was found guilty of five charges, including rape and domestic abuse
“She told him she had a knife in her hands because she was scared of Dickson.”
During the trial, Dickson admitted to being abusive but denied he had raped his victims, saying the sex was always consensual from both parties.
Dickson’s fourth victim said he “controlled” her, and she was “forced to tell lies to the police”.
Detective Inspector David Cockburn, of Police Scotland’s Domestic Abuse Taskforce said: “Dickson terrorised his victims, subjecting them to horrific levels of violence and abuse.
Dickson denied raping his victims, but admitted he abused them
“It is their courage in coming forward that has brought us here today and this sentence is a recognition of the horrific ordeals they experienced.
“It should also serve as a warning to anyone who thinks they will get away with domestic abuse.
“Police Scotland will not tolerate domestic abuse. We will always investigate and we will proactively pursue all avenues to bring abusers to justice.”
Dickson has been jailed for 14 years, and authorities will monitor him for four years after his release.
The three-year-olds were left in the wooden crate with no pillows or toys for comfort.
The boys were kept separated and unable to touch each other inside the tiny box which was locked with a padlock.
The sickening discovery was made by police officers in the town of Aparecidinha in the Brazilian state of Espirito Santo.
The parents were arrested and taken to a police station on suspicion of child mistreatment.

A hotel boss who molested two little girls while they were staying at his guesthouse by luring them into his bedroom to look at his cats is facing jail.
Former army intelligence officer Adam Saleem, 46, assaulted the youngsters aged just four and eight at his luxury property in the village of Hale Barns, near Altrincham, in Greater Manchester.
The victims who had been staying with their parents at the hotel near Manchester Airport ahead of a trip to Florida for a 50th birthday celebration.
He coaxed them into his bedroom on the pretext of showing them rescue cats he kept and the children were touched inappropriately after he shut his bedroom door and knelt down in front of them.
The attack only ended when their unsuspecting father knocked on the door, walked into the bedroom room and said it was the girls’ bed-time.
At the time the youngsters were too scared to say what happened and the family went on holiday unaware of their ordeals.
The truth only emerged six months later when the older girl told her mother after their father watched a TV programme about a missing child and told his daughters they could talk to him if ever had encounters with ‘nasty men.’
During a video interview with police the eight year old showed officers where Saleem had touched her and even re-enacted how he carried out the assault.
Her parents said she would not have known about paedophilia as they exercised parental lock controls on all their internet access.

Adam Saleem’s £2 million guesthouse where he assaulted two young girls in March last year
The assaults took place in March last year after the victims’s father had booked them into Saleem’s £2m property where he had eight rooms for paying guests.
Miss Nicola Gatto prosecuting said: ‘The complainants father had turned 50 and rather than having a party, he decided to take his family on a holiday to Florida to celebrate his birthday.
‘He booked an overnight stay at the B&B so the family could go for their flight in the morning. The family were allocated a ground floor room but they didn’t want it as they wanted an ensuite in the bedroom.
‘This defendant allocated then a room next door to his room and the family were put in one shared room. On arrival at 8pm the children went to play whilst the parents got the room ready and started unpacking bags.
‘The girls went down to play with the cats just outside the door of the room they were staying in, in the hallway area.
Adam Saleem has been ordered to sign the sex offenders register and will be sentenced next month, but has been warned a by a judge a jail sentence is ‘inevitable’
‘All three girls were playing together. They were outside the private living accommodation of the defendant and their father said they had been quite loud, when all of a sudden they became very quiet.
‘Their father didn’t want them to disturb their neighbours during the course of their playing, so when he went out to look for them, he figured they would be in the defendant’s room, so he knocked on the door of the defendant.
‘He walked into his bedroom, that the prosecution say was unlocked, and he said the defendant was lying on the bed.
‘He got the girls outside of the room, the family went to bed at 9.30 in the evening.
‘The following morning, they left and got taken by taxi and went to the airport and went on their holiday.
‘During the holiday and afterward the parents noticed a change in their daughter and described her as being very emotional and clingy and didn’t speak about their holiday upon their return. They were quite concerned about her.
‘In November 2017, the father watched a film which had an impact on him about a child that had gone missing. He spoke to his daughters, alongside his wife and said if they were ever worried about anything, they could talk to him.
‘He said there were nasty people in the world and they needed to tell him if they ever met any nasty people.
‘On 24 November after the girls’ mother had put the children to bed, the eldest daughter told her sister that she had to tell someone, and then said that the defendant was not a nice man.
‘It took her mother a few minutes to understand who Saleem was, and then the girl told her that he touched her. The girl then demonstrated how the defendant touching her.’
Police quizzed the older girl but the four year old was too young to be interviewed. In her statement the older girl said: ‘He’s got three cats so we went into his room, my older sister and my little sister and me, we went into the room and he offered if we wanted to see the cats so we went in and my older sister, she went to stroke the cats on the other side of the room and then he started to touch us.
‘I felt too scared to say anything but then my dad came in. He didn’t know what happened.
‘The man was touching us with his hands under our knickers. It went on for around 50 seconds. He just kept doing it and doing it. I was thinking: ‘Get off me.’
‘I was about to whack his hand away but I felt too scared. I didn’t say anything to him. I was just scared and he did the same thing to my sister.
‘She had no idea what was going on. We were chasing the cats and he offered if we wanted to come into his room as he had a lot of cats. He closed the door when we went in.
‘My dad came in after and said: ‘Bed’s ready, come out girls.’ I didn’t tell anyone. I had been thinking about it every night. I was upset and I just felt weird afterwards. I just felt uncomfortable.’
Saleem denied wrongdoing. He told the jury: ‘The parents were sorting out their room and I left my room open in case they needed something.
‘I dozed off and I became aware of the children had come into my room and were stroking the cats.
‘A few moments later their father came into the room and apologised to me for them disturbing me and he took the children out. I did not touch the children in any way,
‘I have no sexual interest in children – I find it distasteful. I am completely innocent – I am completely shocked.’
