Selby man and friend jailed for ‘degrading and humiliating’ gang rape of teenage girl in North Yorkshire

Two men have been jailed for a total of 29 years for the “degrading and humiliating” gang rape of a teenage girl in North Yorkshire.

Daniel John Holroyd, 32, and Robert Harold Matthews, 36, were found guilty of two charges each of raping a 16-year-old girl in Sherburn in Elmet, a village in the Selby district.

Holroyd and Matthews were sentenced to 15 and 14 years imprisonment respectively after a jury found them guilty following an eight-day trial at York Crown Court.

The two men were each put on the sex offenders register for life and given a sexual harm prevention order indefinitely.

After the sentencing, North Yorkshire Police shared a statement about the “degrading and humiliating gang rape of a teenage girl”.

Detective Sarah Scott from York CID, who led the investigation, said: “The victim has been through the most horrendous and deeply traumatising experience caused by these two men, who have rightly been convicted of their crimes and sent to prison for a considerable length of time.

“I truly hope the outcome at court gives the victim the strength to start rebuilding her life.”
