Muhyadeen Osman, Bilal Ahmed and Mowled Yussuf who are all aged 20 have been found guilty of rape. They attacked a 16-year-old girl at Victoria Park Hotel in Manchester in 2013, All three have been jailed for a combined 30 years at Manchester Crown Court . They gang-raped a 16-year-old English girl in the bathroom of a hotel where they went to celebrate Eid.
They were just teenagers when they attacked the girl at the Victoria Park Hotel in Manchester, regarding her as ‘easy prey’, the court heard.
The young thugs, then all aged 17, had spent the previous night in the hotel with a number of other men as part of ‘Eid’ celebrations when one of their friends, who had met the girl on BlackBerry Messenger, brought her round saying she should ‘meet his boys.’
The groups of vile creatures then looked for a room in the hotel in Manchester to take advantage of a teenage girl on her own. They got into a bedroom where Yussuf was first to force the girl to perform a sex act on him in the bathroom.
Despite the Young lady repeatedly telling the attackers that she didn’t want to have intercourse, she was forced to perform a sex act on Ahmed before he raped her.
Osman then moved in on the poor young woman, he had been hanging around’outside the door. He then moved her to the bed and raped her himself. The young lady, now a university student, was left alone only to realise that her mobile phone and cash had been taken from her handbag.
She initially only reported the theft but the day after the attack in 2013 she then went on detail the full ordeal she went through.
Thankfully DNA matching the offenders was recovered from the scene and she later picked the men out in identity parades.
The Prosecutor said of the rapists: ‘”He then made reference to ‘his boys’ that were at the Victoria Park hotel, so she accompanied him. Once in the hotel she was then involved in what was talked about as a game of going to hotel rooms with the group and hiding away from the porter. Once they found an unlocked room they turned on the girl, taking turns to have sexual relations with her against her wishes.”
One of the Defence Lawyers said: “What these defendants did wrong is allowing themselves to believe this young lady was willing to perform virtually any sex act on all of them, and failing to make an enquiry about her willingness or indeed to care very much one way or the other. These were just young immature men.”
In sentencing the Judeg said: “This was a large group of young men in a hotel and the inference is you all saw her as easy prey. She didn’t really understand what was on your mind and that is probably because she was a naïve and sexually inexperienced and vulnerable young girl.
When you were running around that hotel she probably saw this as innocent, childish fun, but it all turned sinister when you got her into the bathroom. She found herself in a situation she was totally unable to control.She found herself confronted with demands for sexual activity she did not wish to engage in and did not willingly consent. She had no choice and no opportunity to refuse.”
The jail terms handed out are between 9 and 12 years each.
