‘Bum grope’ radiographer claims victim touched willy
A RADIOGRAPHER accused of groping a colleague threatened to make a counter claim of sexual harassment when she complained, a hearing was told.
Ahmed Omar is said to have repeatedly touched the woman’s bottom at Newham University Hospital in east London and joked that she should become his “second wife”.
When the woman, referred to only as S1, threatened to report him, he said he would tell bosses that she “touched his willy”.
Giving evidence from behind screens at the Health and Care Professions Council, she said: “He just grabbed my arse, and I went ballistic.
“I kicked him, and said ‘what the f*** are you doing?’”
Julia Matherson, for the HCPC, told the hearing how Omar would pass and touch her bottom then say, “Oh sorry,” as if he had brushed her by mistake.
When she asked him to stop doing it he would giggle and walk off.
He would also make comments, such as he was looking for a second wife.
Omar, who denies all the allegations against him, faces being struck off if found guilty.
The hearing continues.
