Met PC 'broke corona regs to sleep with prostitute then snatched back cash' - misconduct claim
A MET Police officer breached coronavirus restrictions to sleep with a prostitute, then snatched back the cash he paid her and struggled with the woman, a misconduct panel will hear.
It is alleged that on January 12 2021 Hassan Mahmood, who resigned from the south area command unit last November, attended the home address of a sex worker, known only as Ms A, to sleep with her.
A public notice ahead of the hearing on December 20 and 21 said: "Once the sexual activity had concluded, Former PC Mahmood is alleged to have snatched the money he had placed on the table and tried to leave the premises. There was then a struggle in which former PC Mahmood is alleged to have lashed out towards Ms A.
"His attendance at Ms A’s home was in breach of the then Covid-19 restrictions. He subsequently pleaded guilty to breaching Covid Tier 4 Regulations at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on June 24 2021, and was fined £660 for that offence.
"The matters set out above are individually and/or collectively so serious that they amount to gross misconduct."
