A Jewish man who sexually abused and beat his victims to ensure their silence has been jailed for 22 years.
David Glausiusz, 47, of Broughton Park, Salford was sentenced at Minshull Street Crown Court on Friday after being found guilty of three counts of rape of a child under the age of 13, six counts of sexual assault against a child under the age of 13, three counts of assault and three counts of child cruelty at an earlier hearing.
Glauciusz had abused children as young as seven, the court heard.
Greater Manchester Police said his victims had been convinced by Glauciusz that they would not be believed if they reported his crimes. He had also tried to threaten them about potential repercussions in the Jewish community if they reported it.
Following the sentencing, Detective Chief Inspector Alan Clitherow of GMP’s Salford Borough, said: “The astounding bravery shown by those who suffered at the hands of Glauciusz has helped put a stop to his prolific and frankly evil actions.
“I’d like to recognise the valiant steps his victims have taken to put him behind bars."
