Two men convicted of rape
Two Mt Roskill men have been convicted of rape after a woman was abducted from central Auckland and sexually assaulted.
A police spokesman said Mohamed Bashir, 25, and Abdinor Abdi, 29, appeared in the High Court in Auckland yesterday and were found guilty of rape and three counts of being party to rape.
Abdi was also convicted of abduction and threats to kill.
The prosecution followed an investigation by the Auckland city police Adult Sexual Assault Team into a complaint from a woman alleging she was abducted from the central city area and subjected to multiple rapes on June 4 and 5, 2011.
Both men were remanded in custody and will be sentenced in the High Court on November 22.
