Pc Adnan Arib Biography
Who is Pc Adnan Arib ?
A Metropolitan Police officer asked a 15-year-old girl if she had a boyfriend after arranging for her to meet him in a park after school, a court heard.
PC Adnan Arib, 45, is also accused of telling a second girl, aged 16, that she was “very pretty” and asking her out while at Bethnal Green Police Station, east London, where he had his base.
Arib, from Barking, east London, has denied two counts of misconduct in a public office at Southwark Crown Court, for his alleged behavior towards two teenagers he met while on duty.
In a prepared statement, Arib said that he “may have been naive, but he was just trying to help.”
Prosecutor Jacqueline Carey told a jury Thursday: “His interactions with them, his conduct toward these two young women was totally inappropriate and the prosecution says it amounts to police misconduct.”
She said the uniformed officer was called to the apartment of a 15-year-old girl by her mother, who had accused her daughter of stealing £10 from her, at around 7:30 a.m. on July 4, 2019.
Arib asked to speak to the girl in her room and told her to “say no” when she asked about the alleged robbery, Carey said.
She then asked him to write her name, phone number and email address on a piece of paper, the girl said in a police interview filmed in court.
“She asked me to meet after school,” she said. ‘She asked me if she wanted to meet us in the park and I said, ‘Yes’.
‘He said that he shouldn’t tell anyone, that he shouldn’t tell my mom that he’s going to find me.’
The court heard that Arib accessed information about the girl on the police computer before sending her a text message that said, “It was nice meeting you this morning.” Will we still meet this afternoon?
“I thought it was dodgy the way he was texting me,” she said.
Arib had changed out of his police uniform into jeans and a pink tank top when he arrived at the park in his school uniform, the jury heard.
The complainant also told police, “I think he put his arm around me.”
She continued: ‘We just walked out the doors, I just asked, ‘Where are we going?’ and she said Mile End Park-I said I can’t go that far.’
He said: ‘Why did you come to see me for such a short time? Then he started asking me if I had a boyfriend and if he made me happy. I told him yes and that he makes me happy, which is a lie.
He had also told her that he wanted them to be friends and that he had things he “wanted to show her”.
At this point, he also suggested going out for a drink and told her that she had “been through a lot” to facilitate meeting her, but the teen said that she couldn’t go on and she left.
Ms Carey described the alleged conversation as “totally and utterly inappropriate”.
“The prosecution says that this officer was tasked with investigating the alleged theft of a small amount of money,” she said.
She not only didn’t investigate it, but he used it to set up a meeting with a 15-year-old girl.
“His conduct betrays the public trust and there can be no reasonable excuse or justification for that behavior.”
The second complainant was detained by police after she was reported missing on April 1, 2019, the court heard.
Ms. Carey said she “started to feel awkward and a little weird” when Arib started asking her about her personal life at the station around 5 am.
She allegedly asked him for her phone number and if she was in a relationship, he told her that he wanted to go out with her and when she asked him why, she said because she was ‘very pretty’, the court listened.
Arib allegedly accessed a police report on her and officers later found that they had sent 47 text messages to each other on a phone that she had initially tried to deny was hers, the court heard.
She said in a prepared statement that she “may have been naive, but was only trying to help,” the court heard.
The jury was told that Arib agrees to meet the girls, but she denies that she was trying to form an inappropriate relationship with them and claims that she wanted to help them and give them advice, which she thought was part of her policing role. .
