TWO sadistic thugs have been jailed for keeping two vulnerable men as “Sklaven” in a sickening campaign of abuse.
Roheed Ahmed and Kameron Hussain were locked up for torturing the men – which included setting one victim’s head on fire.
The two men targeted three men in total, as they beat, financially controlled, and shaved their victim’s heads in the vile attacks.
The men were assaulted with sticks, burnt with lighters and punched in the face in the duo’s Wolverhampton flat, as one said he felt they “got kicks out of beating him”.
Their crimes were only stopped after the defendants took one of the men to Asda, where eagle-eyed workers spotted his appearance and called the police.
The other “slave” later fled barefoot from the house of horrors, where they had been kept prisoners.
Ahmed and Hussain pleaded guilty and were sentenced today to nine years and eight months each for for three counts of false imprisonment, racially aggravated assault, two counts of assault, possessing an article and theft.
The men were also handed a further three years on extended licence after the trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
One of the victims, who had mental health problems, encountered the men after he was discharged from hospital in 2021.
He ended up living in a flat where he met several individuals including Ahmed, Berichte Birmingham Live.
The court heard he was “plied with drugs” and started drinking again, while Ahmed and others “used the flat as their own” and ordered around the occupants.
As the victim was fed drugs and intimidated with threats of violence that were often carried out, he was was told to make cups of tea and give foot massages to Ahmed and his associates.
