Cleared: No Retrial For Morrisons Supermarket Assistant Manager

A Morrisons supermarket assistant manager, cleared of twice raping a female staff member in his office, will not be retried on a charge of molesting a checkout girl.

Yogesh Parmar, 38, had been accused of inventing reasons for the women to see him in the store’s office, where he closed the door behind them and pounced, the jury were told.

Parmar, of Glenavon Gardens, Slough denied and was unanimously found not guilty of two counts of raping the cash administrator at Morrisons, 113 Shepherd’s Bush Green in May and June, 2015. 

He also denied sexually assaulting the till operator the year before on November 1, 2014, but the jury failed to reach a verdict and he was originally scheduled to return for another trial on April 24.

However, yesterday the Crown Prosecution Service offered no evidence on that remaining count and Parmar was found not guilty.

He told Isleworth Crown Court during the trial the rape complainant’s false allegations were made after he gave her a verbal warning and made her subject to internal disciplinary proceedings.

He said the second woman only lodged a complaint after he rebuffed her flirtatious advances and request for a lift home.

The rape complainant sadly died of cancer last year and the second woman no longer works at that particular store.
