A man has been jailed for historic sex offences against two people in Salford.
Todros Grynhaus, now 50, from Salford was found guilty of four counts of indecent assault of a girl under the age of 16, two counts of indecent assault of a girl under the age of 14 and sexual assault.
He was sentenced to 13 years and two months during his trial at Manchester Crown Court on Friday and has also signed the sex offenders register for life.
Between 1996 and 2004, Grynhaus sexually abused a girl in Salford aged seven for years until she was 15.
In 2004 he then moved on to another girl who was 15, sexually abusing her in the Salford area aswell.
It wasn’t until November 2012 that police were contacted and an investigation was launched.
Grynhaus fled to Jerusalem in February 2013 but his escape was shortlived as he was deported in September 2014 and arrested.
Detective Sergeant Joanne Kay said, “Grynhaus had gained the trust of his victims before sexually assaulting and abusing them. He thought he could get away with his crime but thanks to their bravery in coming forward and supporting this investigation, we have been able to prosecute him.
“This case goes to show no matter when the offence took place, justice will eventually catch up with you.”
Pleading with the public to keep their eyes open for sexual abuse, DS Kay continued, “I would also ask those who may be aware of such crimes taking place within their community to report them to police. All reports will be treated with the strictest of confidence.”
