An ‘asylum seeker’ who lied about his age is set to be jailed for the gang rape of a 17-year-old girl in an underpass – with his two accomplices already sentenced to 13 years each.
Abdul Latif Salih, 35, Bahaldin Doud, 21, and Saddam Muhamadaim, all from Sudan, attacked their terrified victim on 14 July last year, in the underpass in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
Salih and Doud have now both been jailed but Muhamadaim still awaits sentencing after he claimed in court that he was actually 17 years old at the time of the attack and not 25, as previously thought.
The men left DNA evidence behind and were captured by police just days after the horrific attack.
Salih was found guilty of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent, one count of rape and one count of attempted rape, while Doud was convicted of two counts of attempted rape.
Muhamadaim, from Birkby, was convicted of three counts of rape and one count of attempted rape.
He will be sentenced after his real age is determined.
Leeds Crown Court previously heard Muhamadaim, who came to the UK from Sudan, gave his date of birth as January 1993 in an asylum registration form document, but he later told police it is actually March 2001.
He was returned to custody.
Salaih, from Huddersfield, and Doud, from Leeds, will also be placed on the sex offenders register.
