Thames Valley Police have praised the bravery of the victims who helped officers bring to justice their attacker.

39 year-old Stephen Samme from Prebendel Close in Aylesbury town centre, denied a series of offences, but after his trial in May, he was found guilty and on July 20, was sent to prison for 1 count of rape, and 5 counts of sexual activity with a child under 16 years old between 2009 and 2011.

Today, Investigating officer Detective Constable Amanda Loveday, of the Child Abuse Investigation Unit (CAIU) based in Aylesbury told Mix 96: "Stephen Samme committed sexual offences against two young victims, which first came to light when one of the victims reported the abuse to police in early 2011."

Det Con Loveday added: "He never admitted the offences, resulting in both his victims having to go through the ordeal of giving evidence in court. I am pleased that justice has been done and would like to praise the bravery of the victims in coming forward and supporting the police investigation."

DC Loveday concluded: "Thames Valley Police take all reports of this nature seriously and victims can feel assured we will always carry out a thorough investigation in a sensitive manner."
