Two men have been jailed for the rape of a vulnerable 15-year-old girl.

Faisar Younas, 23, and Mohammed Ali Rehman, 26, preyed on the teenager, plying her with alcohol before raping her at several addresses in Dewsbury, on May 11, 2010.

At Leeds Crown Court yesterday, (May 18) Judge Scott Wolstenholme handed Rehman, who pleaded guilty to three counts of rape and one of attempted rape, a jail term of 11 years.

Younas was sentenced to six years after admitting sexual activity with a child, along with other offences.

A third man, Larasab Hussain, is to be sentenced at a later date.

Sharon Beattie, prosecuting, told the court that the schoolgirl and a friend had been drinking before they went to Rehman’s house in Tanhouse Street, Dewsbury, to buy some cannabis from him.

Her friend left and once alone with Rehman and at least four other men, she was taken up to a bedroom where she remembers Rehman telling one of the other men: “You have ten minutes with her.”

After a few minutes, Rehman returned and raped the young girl himself.

When the victim did not return home, her family reported her to police as a missing person.

Miss Beattie said: “Somehow the men in the house were alerted that she was being sought ... and Rehman physically picked her up and carried her to another house.”

Once they arrived at Younas’ house in Textile Street, the victim was given more alcohol, and she was once more abused.

She was then moved again, taken in a taxi driven by a third defendant, Larasab Hussain. It was at his house in Headfield Road that the group of men filmed the teenager being abused.

She was found by police back at Rehman’s house at 9am the next day.
