An elderly man abducted two young girls and watched them having sex with each other, according to police in the United Kingdom.

74-year-old Gary Strickland of Harington Close, Urmston, was sentenced at the Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court, to five years and one month in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of child abduction, two counts of taking an indecent image of a child and facilitating or arranging the commission of a child sex offence.

According to the criminal complaint, police received a report, concerning a 14-year-old girl who was living at Strickland’s house.

Strickland was ordered not to contact the girl again, and police sent her home. When the girl was reported missing a year later, police found her at Strickland’s house.

Officers were understandably concerned and found that Strickland had sent a number of messages to the victim. The messages from Strickland were persistent, asking the girl to visit him at his home, and used highly sexualized language.

The girl told officers that she knew Strickland from another girl, who was 12 years old. The girl told police that Strickland regularly picked both of them up in his car, and offered them alcohol and cigarettes.

He then asked them to behave inappropriately with each other, and took indecent photographs of them.
