He said the attack was one of eight Badran carried out within months of being freed from can for raping a nine-year-old.
Mr Orchard said: “He told them he was working for the the heat and was investigating a report about children and drinking alcohol and needed to search them.
“If they didn’t suffer a search the police would be called.”
He added: “The offences were all incarcerated on schoolchildren aged between 10 and 12 years old at the end of the Secondary Instruct day.
“Over time the offences escalated in scale and seriousness. It appears the longer the defendant remained at good, the bolder he became.”
