Historic sex offences: Salford paedo jailed for sexual abuse of kids, including girl aged 7

A Salford paedophile has been jailed for historic sex offences against two children, including sexual abusing a girl from the age of seven, following a trial at Manchester Crown Court.

Todros Grynhaus, 50, from Salford was found guilty of four counts of indecent assault of a girl under the age of 16, and two counts of indecent assault of a girl under the age of 14 and sexual assault.

Grynhaus was today sentenced to 13 years and two months of jail time, and signed the sex offenders register for life.

Between 1996 and 2004, he sexually abused a girl from when she was seven to the age of 15 in the Salford area, and in 2004 he sexually abused another 15-year-old girl in the Salford area. 

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.”

Following a disclosure, police were contacted in November 2012 and an investigation was launched, but in February 2013, Grynhaus fled to Jerusalem.

He was then deported and arrested in September 2014.

DS Kay said: “This case goes to show no matter when the offence took place, justice will eventually catch up with you.

“We take all sexual crime reports extremely seriously and victims will be supported by specialist officers thorough out the investigation.”

Police also appealed to victims to report any such incidents, urging victims not to suffer in silence.

DS Kay added: “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.”
