A 'PICK-UP ARTIST' who preyed on young women then posted videos of his victims on YouTube has been sentenced to two years in prison.

He has also been placed on the sex offenders' register for 10 years.

Adnan Ahmed was this morning sentenced at Glasgow Sheriff Court after being found guilty in September of five charges including threatening and abusive behaviour.

Sheriff Lindsay Wood praised victims for their testimony given during an eight day trial last month. 

He condemned Ahmed's behaviour towards the five victims - one just 16 years old at the time of the offence - as "disrespectful and contemptuous", saying that the 38-year-old's criminal record suggests a man who is "cavalier and self-centred".

Sheriff Wood had deferred sentencing last week for further reports to determine whether there was a sexual motivation to Ahmed's crimes, determining today at Glasgow Sherrif Court that there was.

Ahmed's fiancée sobbed as he was taken down, and was held back by a police officer when she tried to approach him in the dock.  

His two-year sentence was backdated, meaning he's already served nine months as he's been in custody since January 14.

Ahmed, who went by the name Addy A-game, secretly filmed himself approaching his victims in Glasgow.

Some were just schoolgirls when he targeted them.

Vile Ahmed described himself as a dating and lifestyle coach but his victims told a jury at Glasgow Sheriff Court of his true behaviour.

A 21-year-old had broken down in court as she described Ahmed following her through Glasgow City Centre.

Two girls, aged 16 and 17, were approached by him in a secluded lane in Uddingston during a second incident.

Some of the footage taken by the 38-year-old was also filmed in Eastern Europe. 

Another woman told the court she had felt "uncomfortable" and "intimidated" by Ahmed when he approached her on Buchanan Street last year and told her she looked like Kim Kardashian.

He later tried to approach the woman through social media site Instagram.

Rita Bruce, who first brought Adnan's behaviour to light, spoke to the Evening Times outside the court.

She said: "I’m really pleased that even the judge recognised that Adnan Ahmed was and would potentially be a further danger to women.

"I think it’s really important the judge commended the women, his victims, who came forward and stood up in court.

"It must’ve been horrendous for them.

"All people in authority, whether it is colleges, universities, police whatever, must take women seriously when they are brave enough to come forward."
