A paedophile teacher who molested young students during drama classes he taught in Coulsdon has had his sentence extended after admitting further offences.

Glyn Davies, 74, pleaded guilty to four counts of indecently assaulting a young boy under the age of 14 between January 1 1985 and December 31 1988.

At Croydon Crown Court he was sentenced today to 16 months in prison, which will be added to the six year sentence he is currently serving at HMP Bure, after he was convicted in 2016 of two counts of indecently assaulting another boy under 14.

The Court heard Davies, known by the name of Glyn Knowles when he committed the offences, was a dance and drama teacher who ran a stage school in Coulsdon.

The victim, who was aged between seven and 10 at the time the offences were committed, contacted police after seeing a story about Davies’ 2016 conviction in the media.

He told police that Davies used to take him into another room during drama class and sexually abuse him.

As a result of the abuse, the victim said he lost his ability to trust in adults and that the incident impacted his entire teenage and adult life.

PC Laura Davies, of South Command Unit Safeguarding, said: “I would like to commend the actions of the victim for having the strength to come forward and report this sexual abuse so many years later.

“Davies was a prolific sexual offender who abused his position as a dance teacher to target young boys.

"I am glad he has now received a further prison sentence and will no longer be able to prey on young children.

"I hope this conviction brings some form of closure to the victims’ and their families.

“Davies also used the surnames Knowles, Krauss and Krauss-Davies during the 1980s and there may be other victims who are yet to come forward.

"I would urge anyone who is yet to speak to police to contact us.”
