Bilal and Mustafa sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl at a property in Cowley Road in Oxford back in December 2011.

Both men were arrested late last year, as part of the ongoing Operation Bullfinch investigation into child sexual exploitation.

Zeeshan, the cousin of Bilal, threatened the victim when he heard the allegations and told her she would be shot if she did not stop talking to the police.

The Senior Investigating Officer of Operation Bullfinch Det Supt Joe Kidman said, "I would like to commend the courage of this brave young woman who gave evidence against the men who committed these serious sexual assaults on her when she as a child."

"As an investigation team we are pleased to see offenders put behind bars and so reduce the risk to young people."

The trial at Oxford Crown Court has been lasted two and a half weeks.

The men will be sentenced at court later this afternoon.
