A Derby shopkeeper threatened a 14-year-old girl with a screwdriver after she called him a "paedo", a court has heard.

The teenager, now 15, was the final alleged victim of Dilan Amin to give evidence against him in his trial for 14 alleged offences, all of which he denies.

He has been charged with offences - including rape of a child and sexual assault - against seven victims and is on trial at Derby Crown Court. Amin, of Pear Tree Road, Normanton, ran the Famous Shop store, also in Normanton, where some offences were alleged to have been committed.

In a police interview, played in court, another teenage girl said Amin said he was prepared to give her money if he could be with the girl he later allegedly threatened with a screwdriver.

In a police interview with the 14-year-old girl, she claimed Amin kept cannabis behind the counter of his shop. She said Amin said, if she went out with him, then she "would be treated like a Queen". She said this was when she was 14-years-old.

The interviewing police officer then asked her about an alleged incident with a screwdriver, which had been kept under the counter of his shop.

She said: "(I said to him) I do not want anything to do with you. Leave me alone, you're a paedo."

She said he then called her a slag and grabbed the screwdriver. She added: "He came close to me. Like he wanted to throw it."

Another alleged victim, aged 16 now, who it is alleged Amin sexually assaulted, also gave evidence today. She said Amin touched a group of girls at his shop.

    The accusations against Derby shopkeeper

In an interview that was played to the court, a police officer asked her what Amin wanted from her. She replied: "To have sex with me and stuff but I said no because I am like 13 or 14 and he is like 20 or something."

The girl said he grabbed her backside and breasts. She said she did not tell anybody because she felt "scared". In a police interview that was played to the jury, she was asked how she felt.

She replied: "Not very good. I was angry."

Amin faces two charges of rape of a child, two charges of rape, four charges of inciting a child for prostitution, four charges of sexual assault, one charge of paying for sexual services and one charge of supplying cocaine.

He denies the charges. The trial continues.
