The two men convicted of rape, drugging and sexual assault at a Christchurch bar are brothers, and one them ran the bar where they hunted for their victims.

Danny Jaz was the manager of Mama Hooch, where he and his brother Roberto spiked the drinks of mostly young women.

They would then commit rape, indecent assault and take videos while their victims were drugged.

While being investigated by police, Danny Jaz blamed patrons for the crimes he and his brother were committing.
