A BARNSLEY man has admitted raping an 11-year-old girl and will be sentenced next month.

It’s reported that at around 11.30pm on Sunday, September 10, a young girl was raped inside a property on Spencer Street, Barnsley.

Ziad Taibi, of Spencer Street, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of rape and engaging in penetrative sexual activity with a girl under 13, and was last month charged with both offences.

He appeared at Sheffield Crown Court last Thursday and pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual activity with a child under 13 and two counts of rape of a child under 13.

He will be sentenced on November 24 at the same court.
