A SUDANESE refugee who embarked on a three-day rape spree and sliced an elderly woman's throat will serve at least the next 17 years in jail.

Hakeem Hakeem, 21, was yesterday sentenced to 24 years' jail, with a non-parole period of 17 years, for a string of depraved sexual attacks in Melbourne's southeast in March 2005.
The Supreme Court heard that, just one month after arriving in Australia, Hakeem set out on a drug and alcohol-fuelled campaign of terror on the streets of Dandenong.

After chroming and injecting amphetamines, Hakeem and an associate entered a derelict Scout hall on March 10, 2005, dragged a 16-year-old girl to a toilet and repeatedly raped her.

A day later, Hakeem broke into the home of a 63-year-old woman and punched her head and face repeatedly, before biting her and raping her at knifepoint.

As he fled the woman's house with cash and credit cards, Hakeem turned to his victim, who lay bleeding and temporarily blinded on the floor, and said: "Sorry, sorry, mum."

The woman spent more than a week in hospital recovering from fractures to her eye socket, nose and cheek that she suffered in the savage beating.

Justice Murray Kellam said the attack was "beyond the comprehension of any decent person.

"The depravity of your sexual attack upon a woman to whom you had just inflicted serious injury is contemptible."

In his final attack, on March 12, Hakeem entered a building next to the Dandenong Scout hall and forced his way into a room where he confronted a girl and boy, both 16.

Hakeem punched both of them in the face before slicing the girl's clothes off with a razor blade.

He then forced the 16-year-old boy to take off his clothes and made the pair have sex.

Hakeem then raped the girl four times before the pair managed to flee through parkland.

Justice Kellam noted in his sentencing that Hakeem had endured a violent and unstable childhood in Sudan and Egypt and been forced to leave his girlfriend and infant son behind in Egypt.

"It does not explain why, having come to the safety of this county, you within weeks so defiled and abused innocent people who had done you no harm," Justice Kellam said.

"You found your victims in their own private spaces and imposed your sexual lust on them. The violent and debauched way in which you vilified and degraded your victims is reprehensible in the extreme."

Hakeem, who has already served 682 days in prison on remand, will remain behind bars for at least the next 15 years.
