Two men have been found guilty of raping a man in Cambridge on Sunday, October 26, last year.

Mukhtar Ali Saad Mahmoud, 33 and Ibrahim A Abugtila, 22, were found guilty of rape and aiding and abetting rape at Cambridge Crown Court today.

The men saw their victim in the city centre at around 3.30am, they stayed with him following him to Christ’s Pieces where they both raped him. Following the attack the victim called police for help.

The Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit conducted the investigation and identified the two offenders through forensic evidence.

Detective Inspector Alan Page, who led the investigation, said: "This was a truly horrendous crime and I hope today’s result will allow the victim some closure and to begin rebuilding his life. He has shown tremendous bravery throughout this whole process and I am grateful to him for the trust he placed in police in ensuring that justice was done. These men deliberately targeted their victim because of his vulnerability that night, which they took advantage of to commit this callous crime.”
