Alex Wilson-Fletcher, 41, of Oldham Street, Manchester, and Abdelkader El-Janabi, 55, of Artillery Court, Ardwick, are both accused of two counts of rape and one of sexual touching.

The charges follow an attack on a 14-year-old boy in Debenhams on Manchester's Market Street in June.

Both men will appear before Manchester Magistrates Court on 11 October.

The men are alleged to have first approached the boy in the toilets of the city's Arndale Centre on 2 June before leading him to Debenhams.
