Three men who plied a 15-year-old girl with alcohol and raped her at a house party have been jailed.

Daniel Thomas and Lucas Koky, both 23, and 19-year-old Mohammed Mustafa, all pleaded guilty to raping the victim at a house in Moss Side, Manchester.

At Manchester Crown Court, Thomas was sentenced to 10-and-a-half years with a further six months for affray and threatening a person with a blade.

Koky was given 12 years while Mustafa was handed 10 years and nine months.

Greater Manchester Police said the three passed a number of alcoholic drinks to the girl at a house party on 20 November before following her into the bathroom and raping her.

Det Con James Coles said: "The young victim has been put through a disgusting and harrowing ordeal with detrimental effects on her wellbeing.

"Today's outcome is the first step in her recovery. Without her courage and bravery... this prosecution would most likely not have happened.

"These men have now been jailed for their horrendous crimes. They are safely behind bars and are no longer able to prey on young girls."

The defendants were:

  • Daniel Thomas, of Heather Way, Sale
  • Lucas Koky, of Rolls Crescent, Hulme
  • Mohammed Mustafa, of Thorncombe Road, Moss Side
