Pervert raped vulnerable schoolgirl

A pervert pounced on a 15-year-old girl from a children’s home when she was drunk on cheap booze. 

Matthew Mann, of Coatbridge, in Lanarkshire was yesterday found guilty of raping the girl in November last year. 

The victim, who has psychological problems, was staggering about outside an off licence when she asked Mann to buy her more alcohol. 

When he came out he took the girl to a quiet spot pulled down her jogging bottoms and raped her. 

Lord Cameron called for reports and locked Mann up. He will be sentenced at the High Court in Edinburgh next month.
