Two men have been charged with raping a teenage boy in a Manchester department store's toilets.

Abdelkader El-Janabi, 55, and Alex Wilson-Fletcher, 41, are charged with two offences of rape and one of sexual touching.

The charges follow an attack on a 14-year-old boy in Debenhams in the northern English city’s Market Street in June.

The men allegedly first approached the boy in the toilets of the city’s Arndale Centre on 2 June before leading him to the department store.

Detective Sargeant Liam Boden, of North Manchester Criminal Investigations Department said the young victim is being supported by officers who are trained in dealing with victims under this type of circumstance.

Local Member of Parliament Tony Lloyd has questioned why it took more than two months for the police to make a public appeal for information about the crime.

He said: ‘I think the police do have to give a detailed answer as to why this delay took place.

‘It’s not easy in situations like this, given the need to respect the victim.'

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

Enquiries are ongoing so if you have any information, call North Manchester Crime Investigations Department on +44(0)161 856 3240 or Crimestoppers on +44(0)800 555 111.
