TWO men have been jailed for their part in a horrific attack on a girl of 15.

The teenager was repeatedly raped and sexually assaulted in Ravensthorpe. She was filmed being subjected to a series of sexual attacks over the course of one night in May last year.

Today, Ali Rehman, 26, of Tanhouse Street, Ravensthorpe, was jailed for 11 years for three counts of rape and one of attempted rape.

Faisar Younas, 23, of Myrtle Road, Ravensthorpe, was given a four year sentence for sexual activity with a child.

A third man, Larasab Hussain, 46, of Headfield Road, Savile Town will be sentenced in July after he admitted sexual assault.

All three appeared at Leeds Crown Court today.

They admitted their offences during a trial in March, when the court heard how parts of the night’s events were filmed on a mobile phone.

The girl was taken to the homes of Rehman and Younas and a third address, given alcohol and repeatedly sexually abused.

At one point she was too drunk to walk so Rehman carried her over his shoulder to Younas’ house, the court heard.

After today’s hearing Andrew Horton from the Crown Prosecution Service said: “This was a highly disturbing case in which the men preyed on a vulnerable child victim.

“The victim showed tremendous courage in coming forward and being prepared to give evidence at trial.

“We hope that the sentences handed down are some comfort to the victim and that she is now able to begin to rebuild her life.”
